While buses are generally a safe method of transport, passengers, pedestrians, and other road users may be injured in accidents involving buses. Bus accidents are often the result of human error on the part of the driver. Many are caused by bus drivers being forced to take evasive action to avoid collisions, which may be either their fault or that or another motorist. A lack of reasonable care and skill on the part of a bus driver will ultimately be the responsibility of the bus operator, which can be held responsible for the actions or omissions of its employees under the principle of vicarious liability, and this represents the legal basis for bus accident compensation claims.
Most accidents that result in injuries to bus passengers involve buses braking abruptly or swerving suddenly for whatever reason. The force that such manoeuvres exert inside a bus can cause standing passengers to lose their balance and fall, or be thrown against against hard seat edges, ticket machines, other installations, or fellow passengers. Luggage may also fall from overhead compartments striking people standing or seated below. The extent of a passenger’s injuries will depend on various factors, but particularly the speed at which the bus was travelling at the time of the accident.
In the same way as other road users, a bus driver may be fatigued to the extent that they may fall asleep momentarily at the wheel, distracted by texts or calls on a mobile phone, or driving under the influence of drink or drugs. Erratic driving may lead to a bus mounting the pavement, posing a threat to both passengers and pedestrians, or swerving unexpectedly into oncoming traffic, risking the safety of passengers and other road users. In other circumstances, pedestrians may be struck by bus wing mirrors due to careless driving, or exiting passengers may be trapped in the automatic doors as a bus pulls away, a scenario that can cause very serious injuries.
