Des Moines Drunk Driving Attorneys
When purchasing a bus ticket, bus passengers agree to pay the fees charged by the bus company in return for a safe and timely ride from one location to another. This means that the bus company is responsible for providing a safe environment in which the passengers can expect reasonable service. Unfortunately, serious accidents causing injuries and fatalities have occurred because the bus driver was under the influence of alcohol.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a bus accident in which the driver may have been intoxicated, you deserve compensation for your pain and suffering. For more information, contact the dedicated Des Moines drunk driving attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at 877-327-2600 today.
Consequences of an Intoxicated Bus Driver
Bus drivers who drink and drive exponentially increase the risk of harm to the passengers on board and other motorists nearby. Bus accidents are often much more serious in nature than other drunk driving accidents involving smaller vehicles. Some of the dangers include:
- Running over pedestrians
- Rolling into ditches
- Reduced/blurred vision
- Driving into oncoming traffic
- Slower reflexes
- Jerky stops and starts causing injuries to passengers
If a negligent bus driver’s actions led to an accident involving injuries or fatalities, the bus driver, the bus company, or the bus company’s insurer may be liable under the law.
