Virginia commercial bus accidents often cause significant injuries and kill passengers. If you were injured while riding a commercial bus, you need to take immediate action in order to protect your rights. At The Warren Firm, our firm’s founder, Vaden Warren, has over 20 years of experience devoted entirely to the practice of personal injury law. He can help you file a claim against the bus company’s insurer for all your accident-related costs.

Did your bus driver violate Hours of Operation regulations?

One of the common causes of commercial bus collisions is driver fatigue. Sometimes bus drivers drive through the night without taking proper breaks in order to avoid fatigued driving. Often times, bus drivers are pressured by their employers to drive more than what is allowed by federal regulations.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Hours of Operation prohibit passenger-carrying drivers from doing the following:

  • Drive more than 10 hours following 8 consecutive hours off duty
  • Drive for any period after having been on duty for 15 hours following 8 consecutive hours off duty

Commercial bus companies and their drivers owe a duty to their passengers to make sure their safety is always protected. Failure to do so can be viewed as a form of negligence. If we find this to be true for your case, we will work to obtain justice, inside or outside of court.
