When Improper Bus Maintenance Leads To Accidents
Bus companies are required to conduct regular maintenance checks on all of their vehicles to keep them in good working order and make repairs when necessary. Buses that are poorly maintained have much greater potential to cause an accident due to a part or system failure. When this happens, the results can be catastrophic or fatal. If you have been involved in a bus accident caused by poor maintenance, you need an experienced Houston attorney to help you gain maximum compensation for your injuries.

Bus Companies Have A Duty To Maintain Their Buses
Bus companies are required to properly maintain their fleet of vehicles. If they fail to perform regular maintenance, change tires or make repairs when a driver informs them of a problem, a part or an entire system can fail, causing an accident.
Bus companies are supposed to keep detailed records of all maintenance done to any vehicle as well as a log of pre-trip inspections done by the driver. These records can show whether a bus company was negligent in its maintenance of a vehicle.
Our lawyers will review these records thoroughly, along with other evidence, as we investigate the cause of your bus accident. We look for all possible causes of the accident and work diligently to show fault on the part of the negligent party.
We will work closely with medical experts to determine the full extent of your injuries, including current and potential future costs to prove damages on your behalf. We present all of this information to the bus company’s insurance carrier and negotiate for a settlement that will cover your medical expenses, lost wages and other expenses associated with the bus accident. If the insurance carrier is unwilling to give you a fair settlement, our experienced trial lawyers will take your case to court.
