Common Carrier Law Holds Bus Companies To A Higher Standard Of Care

Bus companies such Greyhound bus lines and other companies that transport passengers for a fee including limousine companies and dart rail and bus drivers are common carriers under Texas law. This means they can be held to a higher standard of responsibility for protecting the safety of passengers than a private individual is held when driving his or her own car.

Bus drivers are entrusted with your safety, and yet far too often these drivers and bus companies fail to take necessary steps to protect your safety:

  • They fail to conduct proper maintenance of the braking systems
  • They fail to inspect and to replace worn tires
  • They fail to hire qualified drivers, and sadly, the bus drivers are often driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol or are suffering from sleep deprivation

Buses are extremely large, heavy vehicles that do not typically contain many passenger restraint systems to protect the occupants of the bus, and when buses are involved in a wreck, passengers, luggage and debris are often thrown about the cabin violently resulting in major or catastrophic injuries.

We are experienced in thorough investigation of many accident types, and our lawyers can call on specialized resources to determine whether negligence caused your bus crash.

There were several serious bus crashes in Texas during 2008, with some resulting in dozens of critical injuries and deaths. We believe it is essential to determine specific accident causes and hold these companies and drivers accountable.
