Las Vegas Bus Accident Attorney
In the Las Vegas area there are many busses on the road – city busses, tourist busses, hotel busses and shuttles and school busses among others. We think of buses as safe and reliable—an affordable, convenient form of public or long-distance transportation that lets us relax without worrying about traffic. They seem almost like moving fortresses that will keep us safe while we reach our destinations. Unfortunately, due to a number of factors, that’s not always the case. Statistics make this clear. In one recent year (2010), 435 large buses were involved in accidents in Nevada. These accidents resulted in 316 cases of property damage, and, far more unsettling, 118 injuries and one death. Smaller buses (carrying 15 passengers or fewer) were involved in accidents resulting in 25 injuries and another death.
If you or someone in your family has been injured in a school bus, Las Vegas city bus, interstate motorcoach (like Greyhound), tourist bus or other bus-related accident, the Drummond Law Firm’s Las Vegas bus accident lawyers may be able to help you or your loved one receive the compensation you deserve and restore your piece of mind.
Let’s face it. The idea of a bus ride turning into an accident involving serious injuries is an unexpected nightmare. And nobody is looking to file a personal injury lawsuit unless it’s necessary. However, insurance companies rarely have your best interests at heart. So, in situations like this, consulting with an attorney with a range of personal injury case experience is simply a smart move.
Whether your bus accident was caused by the bus driver’s negligence, another vehicle, a drunk driver, pedestrians or another cause, the experienced legal team at the Drummond Law Firm can thoroughly investigate your Las Vegas, Henderson or greater Nevada accident to determine who was at fault and then work with you to settle the case to your advantage.
Tour Bus Accidents In Las Vegas
As a national and international tourist and convention destination, the streets of Las Vegas and roads leading in and out of the city are often filled with tourist buses, including charter buses, which not only visit Las Vegas, but also surrounding tourist destinations like the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. These large vehicles are made by the same manufacturers that build Greyhound, Trailways and other motorcoach-type buses; often they’re double-decker style buses or ones that feature open roofs. Their size creates the impression of safety, but these “mega buses” aren’t immune to devastating accidents.
One case in point. Late in 2015, a drunk driver crashed into a Las Vegas tour bus early one Saturday morning. The drunk driver survived, but two bus passengers died in the fire that resulted from the crash, while five others were seriously injured. Eyewitness descriptions of this fiery accident were gruesome. You may recall another accident, in 2016, involving the crash of a Las Vegas tour bus. This accident resulted in injury to a dozen passengers.
