    4 Common Causes of BoltBus Accidents in Philadelphia, PA

    BoltBus is a common carrier that transports passengers across various locations within the United States and Canada. Many people choose to travel with BoltBus because of the low prices and nonstop travel to several locations. However, the low prices paid by customers does not justify the possibility of being injured while traveling with BoltBus.

    The following is a list of common causes of BoltBus accidents.

    Inexperienced Driver

    The vehicles used by BoltBus are large commercial buses designed to carry several passengers at a time. When operating a vehicle like this, it is expected that the bus driver was adequately trained. If a bus operator did not receive sufficient training, it is more likely that they can cause a serious accident. For example, a poorly trained driver may struggle when attempting to make tight turns on busy streets or while trying to maneuver in traffic.

    Intoxication

    The consumption of alcohol or medication prior to operating a vehicle is a poor idea whether a person is transporting passengers or driving their personal vehicle. Drivers that are intoxicated will suffer from decreased reaction times and will make poor decisions on the road. Additionally, as buses are large vehicles that are difficult to maneuver, a bus driver will place passengers and motorists at risk if he arrives at work while intoxicated.

    Speeding

    Any person that has been on a bus understands that passengers will often sway or jump when the vehicle hits even a small bump in the road. This often requires the bus driver to be especially careful to avoid hitting potholes or debris that could injure a passenger. However, when a bus driver decides to speed or drive recklessly, the potential for a passenger being injured increases.

    Speeding over potholes and other debris could catapult a passenger into a hard surface, which could result in a long-term injury.

    Fatigued Bus Driver

    BoltBus boasts that they have a number of nonstop or limited-stop travel options that will get a passenger to their destination as quick as possible. With the option to travel nonstop, there is no guarantee that your bus driver is well-rested as they may have been operating a charter bus for multiple days a week.

    If a bus driver is fatigued while driving, they could easily fall asleep or fail to notice changes in traffic due to exhaustion, which is likely to lead to a crash.

    To learn more about filing a lawsuit for BoltBus accident, you should continue reading and speak with an experienced Philadelphia personal injury lawyer.

    Determining Liability for a BoltBus Accident in Philly

    If you were injured in a BoltBus accident in Philadelphia, you should be aware that there are multiple parties that could be held liable for your injuries. First, the bus driver that caused the accident could be held liable as they had a duty to act with care while transporting passengers. However, the bus driver is not the only party that may be held liable for the accident.

    As the bus driver was operating within the scope of his employment with BoltBus when they caused the accident, BoltBus can also be held responsible for the accident. This is referred to as vicarious liability.

    Additionally, if the accident was caused due to some manufacturing defect, the company that manufactured the defective equipment may also be added to the case as a defendant.

    If you are unsure about who could be held liable for your injuries after you were involved in a BoltBus accident, you should speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The Reiff Law Firm can help you pursue the damages you deserve for your injuries.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.
