Las Vegas is home to casinos, buffets and slot machines. There are also a lot of city buses, charter buses, school buses, and private buses.

Nevada Tour Bus Accident Attorney

With the sights and sounds of Nevada and major highways leading to other attractions within the state and the surrounding area, it is not uncommon to see tour buses on Nevada’s roads and highways. Statistically speaking, riding on a large tour bus is a safer mode of travel than traveling in a passenger car. This does not mean, however, that passengers on a tour bus are less likely to be injured in a crash. Most tour coaches do not have any sort of restraints, meaning that a rollover accident can cause passengers to strike their heads against windows, seats, and other hard surfaces in the bus. Even if a bus remains upright and does not roll over, a crash can cause any stored luggage to come loose and strike passengers, causing injury.

Causes of Tour Bus Accidents in Nevada

There are a number of actions and behaviors that can contribute to a tour bus crash or another type of bus accident. Sometimes, another motorist acts in such a way as to cause a tour bus crash, such as when a motorist turns in front of a tour bus or merges in front of a bus without allowing the bus involved with enough clearance. But there are actions and behaviors the tour bus driver can engage in that increase the likelihood of a tour bus crash:

  • Driving without proper certification or training: While most reputable tour bus companies ensure drivers are properly trained and certified to drive tour buses, not all companies do so. The driver may not be certified to drive a commercial vehicle, or may not have much experience in driving a tour bus. This can increase the chances of a crash.
  • Driving without proper rest: Rules and regulations dictate how many hours commercial drivers can drive before they need a rest. Some companies, however, may encourage their drivers to ignore these in return for bonuses or continued employment. A driver who drives while drowsy can pose as great a risk as an intoxicated driver.
  • Distracted driving: Drivers of commercial vehicles like tour buses need to devote their undivided attention to the roadway. Bus drivers who are distracted by texting or by talking with passengers are putting their passengers and other drivers at risk.
  • Bus driver speeding: Speeding by bus drivers can significantly increase the risk of accidents, as higher speeds reduce the driver’s reaction time to unexpected road conditions or hazards. Speeding can lead to severe crashes—particularly in densely populated areas such or on routes with frequent stops, such as in Las Vegas. Hurt in a crash involving a bus that was speeding? Contact our Nevada attorneys today. 
  • Bus driver traffic safety violations: Traffic safety violations by bus drivers—such as ignoring traffic signals, improper lane changes, or failing to yield—can lead to dangerous interactions with other vehicles and pedestrians. A traffic safety breach compromises the safety of everyone on the road. It increases the likelihood of terrible bus accidents. 
  • Inadequate bus maintenance: Regular maintenance is crucial for the safety of bus operations. Inadequate maintenance can lead to mechanical failures, such as brake failures or tire blowouts, which are significant causes of bus accidents. These failures can result in loss of control. It can cause collisions that could have been prevented with proper upkeep and regular inspections. A bus operator—public or private—can be held liable for a crash that happened because of improper maintenance. 
  • Fall accidents on buses: Fall accidents on buses commonly occur during sudden starts, stops, or sharp turns. Inadequate handrails, slippery floors, or overcrowded conditions can increase the risk of falls. These accidents can result in serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Elderly passengers or passengers with mobility issues are at a heightened risk. If you or your loved one was hurt in a fall accident on a bus, contact us today for a free consultation with an experienced Nevada bus accident attorney. 
  • Negligent security: Negligent security on buses can lead to assaults and other violent incidents among passengers. Insufficient security measures, lack of surveillance, and inadequate response protocols can make buses vulnerable to such events. Ensuring passenger safety involves not only maintaining order but also implementing effective security strategies. Passengers should be protected from safety risks, including the threat posed by other passengers. 
  • Poor weather conditions: Poor weather conditions—such as heavy rain, high winds, dog, snow/ice—can greatly influence bus safety. These conditions impair visibility and road traction, challenging even the most experienced drivers. Buses require longer stopping distances and careful handling during adverse weather. A bus should not go at all if the road conditions do not allow for safe operations.

Every Bus Accident in Nevada Requires a Comprehensive Investigation to the Bus Driver or Bus Drivers Involved

Nevada is a fault-based motor vehicle accident jurisdiction, including for bus accidents. The party who is responsible for a bus accident—such as a company that fails to perform maintenance—can be held legally liable for the resulting damages. Notably, Nevada operates under a modified comparative negligence standard (NRS 41.141). Each party to a bus accident can be held liable for their proportionate share of the damages. For example, if you were a pedestrian who was deemed 30 percent at fault for a bus accident for crossing against a traffic signal, you would bear liability for 30 percent of your own damages. Every bus accident should be thoroughly investigated by a top-tier Nevada bus accident lawyer.
