Every day in Massachusetts, millions of people rely on Massachusetts school buses, mass transit, city bus lines, private charter buses, and tour buses as a means of transportation. Unfortunately, according to statistics published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1,392 people died and over 75,000 people were injured in Massachusetts in Massachusetts bus accidents between the years of 2004 and 2008.
The Massachusetts bus accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates have significant experience handling Massachusetts personal injury claims and Massachusetts wrongful death claims resulting from Massachusetts bus accidents. Our Boston, MA bus accident injury lawyers are highly skilled. Our Boston bus accident injury lawyers use their expertise to diligently pursue our Massachusetts clients’ cases. We get them the compensation that they deserve.
There are many causes of Massachusetts bus accidents for which monetary compensation can be obtained for your bus accident injuries, including:
Poor weather conditions
The Massachusetts bus driver or other Massachusetts motor vehicle operator’s inattention, possibly due to texting or talking on a cell phone
Negligent or reckless driving due to speeding or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
An improperly maintained Massachusetts bus
Defective Massachusetts roadways or Massachusetts roadways with construction hazards
Malfunctioning Massachusetts bus equipment due to manufacturing error
Lack of safety guidelines set by the Massachusetts bus company or the failure of the Massachusetts bus driver to adhere to established Massachusetts safety standards
Massachusetts bus accidents often result in serious injuries or wrongful death. A Massachusetts bus rollover or collision can cause passengers on the bus or passengers in another motor vehicle involved in the Massachusetts accident to sustain head trauma, lacerations, internal injuries or broken bones. In addition to physical injuries, Massachusetts bus accidents often result in extreme emotional trauma to the Massachusetts bus accident victim, which can be debilitating. These physical and emotional damages resulting from a Massachusetts bus accident may cause permanent disability or prevent the injured party from working.

Buses are a very common form of travel in Massachusetts, in large part because of their affordability. Unfortunately, Massachusetts bus accidents occur every day and have the potential to cause grave injury. In the worst circumstances, Massachusetts bus accidents can result in wrongful death. The fact that a large number of Massachusetts buses often are not equipped with appropriate safety devices leads to a greater number of Massachusetts bus accident injuries. Massachusetts law requires that all Massachusetts buses that are purchased or leased after July, 2004 have seatbelts. However, Massachusetts buses that were purchased or leased before that date are not subject to the seatbelt requirement, in large part due to the significant costs that would be incurred if seatbelt installation was required. Unfortunately, Massachusetts bus passengers that are on an older bus are thus at a greater risk for injury in the event that a Massachusetts bus accident takes place.
The expert and highly skilled Massachusetts bus accident attorneys at our Boston, MA law firm have over 25 years of experience in handling Massachusetts bus accident claims and obtaining large settlement awards for our Massachusetts bus accident clients. Obtaining substantial Massachusetts bus accident damage awards can be complex, in part because there are a number of parties that can be found liable in the event of a Massachusetts bus accident. Potential liable parties can include Massachusetts bus companies, Massachusetts bus drivers, other Massachusetts motor vehicle drivers, manufacturers of the bus or bus parts, maintenance companies and Massachusetts school boards and school districts. Our Boston personal injury lawyers have gained a national reputation in representing our Massachusetts bus accident clients and provide our Massachusetts bus accident clients with outstanding and thorough legal service.
A Massachusetts bus driver’s permissible driving hours and training are regulated by the Federal Carrier Safety Administration. Similar to other public Massachusetts transportation services, Massachusetts bus drivers are legally obligated to operate the bus with “the highest degree of care.” In order to ensure that our Massachusetts bus accident clients’ injuries are accurately assessed, we consult with a wide range of medical experts and other professionals. An adequate assessment of our Massachusetts bus accident clients’ injuries is critical in ensuring that our clients receive the full and fair compensation that they deserve.
