Bus Accidents

Passenger carrying vehicles transport large numbers of passengers throughout Illinois and across the country. Whether they are publicly operated buses, private coaches or other types of commercial vehicles, passenger carrying automobiles are held to higher standards of responsibility and care than standard motor vehicles.

In fact, the U.S. Department of Transportation fields an organization known as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which directly oversees and enforces the safety regulations surrounding large passenger carrying vehicles.

Just as with any motor vehicle on the road, buses and bus drivers are susceptible to error and acts of negligence. Unfortunately, these careless mistakes can result in accidents that injure or kill numerous victims. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, our personal injury legal team at Patel Law, PC has the experience and legal knowledge needed to file a successful claim and recover your compensation.
