Handling Charter Bus Accidents In Texas
With nearly 40 years of experience representing people injured in serious motor vehicle accidents, the attorneys at the Houston law firm of B. L. Jensen, L.P., are a well-recognized source of information and advocacy for accident victims. Our legal team has handled a number of key bus accident cases, including cases involving people injured in casino bus and charter bus accidents.
Charter buses that go to Lake Charles for parties, weddings and proms sometimes have unsafe features or practices that lead to injuries and fatalities. For example, a girl fell out the window of a party bus, and thanks to our prompt inspection of the bus, it was determined that there were no installed warning signs about not standing while riding the bus. However, after the accident, the bus company had taped up a paper sign to that effect — showing that it recognized that such a sign was missing. This piece of evidence proved pivotal in demonstrating the negligence on the part of the charter bus company that helped contribute to the accident.
Other types of negligence that are sometimes at work in charter bus accidents include the following:
- Failure to employ properly licensed, qualified and trained drivers
- Failure to employ bus drivers with commercial driver’s licenses and proper endorsements
- Failure to properly inspect and maintain the charter buses
- Failure to enforce behavior codes and properly deal with unruly passengers
