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.

If you or a loved one are injured in a tour bus crash, it is important to consult with a Nevada tour bus accident attorneys right away so as to protect your rights and be able to recover the compensation to which you are entitled: 702-252-0055.

Causes of Tour Bus Accidents

There are a number of actions and behaviors that can contribute to a tour bus crash. 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 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.
