Bus Accidents in Louisville
A bus is a common method of transportation all across the United States. As towns and cities everywhere develop, overcrowding becomes more and more of a problem that is causing a growing number of people to use mass transit to get around. With more people now riding buses, the number of deaths and injuries from bus-related accidents is on the rise.
Every year, hundreds of victims die in accidents involving buses. Based on data published by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration in 2012, more than 19,000 people were injured in bus crashes. The primary causes of these crashes are operator negligence, faulty equipment, hazardous road conditions, inclement weather, and insufficient equipment maintenance.
