Double-decker buses are two-story buses used to transport many people for recreation or functional reasons. Buses are a relatively safe mode of transportation, however, accidents still occur due to negligence.

What kinds of accidents and injuries can occur?

Double-decker bus accidents occur often due to the driver’s negligence. The driver may be distracted, inexperienced, intoxicated, reckless in inclement weather conditions, or simply reckless. These can cause accidents with other cars or objects. Any victims of these accidents to suffer from bruising, broken bones, lacerations, spinal cord injury, concussions, traumatic brain injury, or even death, depending on the speed and impact of the accident.

Additionally, double-decker buses can hit pedestrians or other vehicles on the road. These types of accidents can cause the same types of injuries, but likely much more severe for a pedestrian getting full impact. Sometimes, the bus may even have a defect in its design, which can cause the bus’s functions to fail or take action of its own.

Who is liable?

Negligence is the basis of these types of accident lawsuits. Negligence occurs when one party breaches the duty of care that they owe to others on the road and injuries directly resulting from the accident. Double-decker bus drivers can be found liable when they drive recklessly. Also, the bus company can be held liable if the accident was found to be due to driver inexperience or improper training. This would be considered negligent hiring since the company allowed someone to operate the bus without being equipped with the proper skills to do so, which can hurt others and themselves. If the bus driver hits a pedestrian or another vehicle, it would be best to have an experienced attorney to help you by going over important evidence and investigating the accident. Your attorney will help to determine who the liable party is. If the accident is due to a defect in the bus, the liable party will be the manufacturer of the bus since they are responsible for releasing that defective product for public use.
