Common Carrier Law Holds Bus Companies to a Higher Standard of Care
Bus companies, such as Greyhound bus lines, 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 that they can be held to a higher standard of responsibility for protecting the safety of passengers than a private individual would be held to when driving his or her own car.
Bus drivers are entrusted with your safety; yet, far too often, these drivers and bus companies fail to take necessary steps, such as the following, to protect your safety:
- Conduct proper maintenance of the braking systems
- Inspect and replace worn tires
- Hire qualified drivers (sadly, many bus drivers are often driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol or while suffering from sleep deprivation)
Buses are extremely large, heavy vehicles that do not typically contain many passenger restraint systems for the protection of 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.
