Who doesn’t think mass transit is a good idea? The reasons for the system are many; however, most busses are big and intimidating, especially when you are trying to share the road with them in your economy sedan. Busses also demand the public trust that drivers have been screened and trained to be professional, courteous, and extra cautious.
Busses are nothing like cars other than the obvious. They handle differently, and in an accident, they can cause serious damage and injuries. Even a low speed fender bender could result in injuries or even death. The driver needs special training to maneuver in traffic and be aware of the cars and bicycles around the bus. Proper use of turn signals and other lights are also critical. Any mistake has serious consequences.
Busses aren’t just liable to the vehicles around them, they are also liable for the safety of their passengers. Bus accidents can result in multiple injuries. If you have been in a bus accident as either a passenger or as the occupant of another vehicle, then you need to contact CMPCC. Establishing your rights as soon as possible is critical to your case.
