Bus Accidents

Don’t settle for less than maximum case value

Whether it’s a city bus carrying people to work, a school bus taking children to school, or a charter bus driving through Lubbock on the way out of town, buses are a part of daily life for thousands of Texans.

And while they are often seen as one of the safest methods of transportation, bus accidents can cause serious, and even fatal, injuries. Because of the volume of passengers that utilize public and private transit, the chances of suffering horrific injuries when a bus is involved in an accident increase significantly.

Texas Bus Accidents Are All Too Common

It’s been a few years since the devastating bus crash that killed 13 people in Uvalde, Texas. The bus was full of senior members of First Baptist Church of New Braunfels heading back home from a church retreat on March 29, 2017. The bus was traveling on Highway 83 just north of Uvalde when a pickup truck drifted across the center line of the highway and collided with it. The truck driver admitted he was on prescription medication that lists drowsiness as one of its side effects. In addition, he admitted to smoking marijuana and was texting and driving. In November of 2018, he was sentenced to 55 years in prison. This devastating accident was completely preventable and shows just how dangerous a bus accident can be.
