Charter Bus Accident Attorneys
Millions Recovered for Our Clients
In studies conducted by the University of Michigan, charter bus drivers
were statistically more likely to have poor driving records and a larger
history of errors. Combined with an archaic lack of seat belts and other
safety measures, injuries sustained from a charter
bus accident can be devastating.

Protecting the Victims of Charter Bus Crashes
Charter buses, also known as motorcoaches, are tall buses employed for
cross-country travel and tourism-related activities. While bus industry
experts assert that buses are a safe mode of transportation, charter buses
have come under fire due to recent tragedies. In 2007, a charter bus crash
killed five baseball players from Bluffton University, eventually resulting
in new legislation requiring seat belts and other safety measures.
The review of the accident found that the primary cause of the crash was
“driver error” and poor signage. However, poor safety equipment
was a factor in the deaths of the passengers as well. While the new law
will make sure new charter buses are safer, existing buses are for the
most part allowed to remain on the road without any changes.
The Michigan study mentioned earlier noted that a
third of all charter bus crash fatalities were the deaths of passengers and
drivers. This is a far cry from the normal rate of less than 5-10% for
school or transit bus passengers. For bus passengers in general, riding
a charter bus is more likely to result in serious injury or death.
