The Princeton bus accident lawyers at Lependorf & Silverstein were shocked by the severity of a recent bus crash that involved a bus driver and 23 passengers being injured after a casino bus crashed into the center median. According to The Associated Press, the bus accident occurred on Interstate 95 in New Rochelle. Officials say the bus veered out of control, struck the center median, crossed traffic, and slid along the outer barrier before coming to a stop. All 24 occupants were sent to the hospital, but none had serious injuries. Investigators are trying to determine what caused the crash.
In any bus accident case, a number of questions must be answered in order to help determine what caused the crash. Was the bus driver speeding? Did driver fatigue or lack of proper training play a part in the crash? Was the bus properly inspected before the trip? Did a mechanical malfunction or defective auto part contribute to the accident? Were the passengers treated with the utmost level of care following the crash? There are many questions that must be asked following a bus accident.
It is the legal responsibility of a bus company to provide injured passengers with the support and care they need immediately following the crash. Unfortunately, it is common in these cases for bus companies and insurance companies to deny injured victims adequate support for medical bills, lost wages, suffering, and other related damages. A skilled bus accident attorney can help determine liability for the crash and hold the at-fault party accountable for the incident.
