New Rules Needed for Bus Safety | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

Posted by Patrick Regan and Paul Cornoni

A recent article in the Washington Post highlights the need for improved safety regulations concerning buses.  The National Transportation Safety Board heavily criticized the Department of Transportation for failing to provide meaningful oversight of the commercial bus industry.

One of the main areas of concern was the failure to implement recommendations concerning safety equipment on buses, including seatbelts and stronger roofs and windows.  This well deserved criticism comes on the heels of the investigation into the January 6, 2008 rollover crash in Utah that killed nine passengers.

Unfortunately, the District of Columbia has suffered its share of tragedies as the result of bus accidents.  Only just recently, our firm, successfully obtained a $2,950,000 settlement on behalf of the estate of a woman who was killed by a bus while walking across the street.
