Skilled Legal Support for Complex Accidents
Bus accident cases can be complex. Government entities may be involved
in school bus incidents, for instance. Private bus companies may be national
or international firms. At Tedford & Associates, we do whatever it
takes to determine the identity of the at-fault parties to get you favorable results.
Attorney Tedford knows what it's like to suffer injuries because of
someone else's negligence after being involved in a serious
auto accident with an uninsured driver. We know how important it is to get sufficient
compensation to cover expenses now and for the future.
Common Injuries resulting from bus accidents
A bus accident lawyer can pursue compensation for wrongful death and a
wide spectrum of injuries:
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Head, neck and back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal and soft-tissue injuries
- Skin abrasions
Even if symptoms don't seem severe at first, they may develop into
more serious conditions. It is important to always seek medical treatment.
If a loved one has died in a bus accident, we can bring a
wrongful death suit against those who harmed you, including the bus driver and the bus company.

Common Causes of Bus Accidents
Like truck drivers, bus drivers are specially trained by their employers.
Also like truck drivers, bus drivers are required to pass tests to obtain
and maintain a commercial driver's license. They must also obey federal
laws regarding the safe and proper handling of their vehicles and getting
enough rest. Given the statistics, we know that these laws are sometimes
ignored to the detriment of passengers, the driver, other vehicles and
Collisions may result because of:
- Unruly passengers, who can cause the bus driver to turn attention away
from the steering wheel and the road.
- Driver distraction caused by texting while driving, making phone calls,
eating, drinking and using dashboard systems.
- Driver impairment (driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.)
- Driver fatigue, which may lead to falling asleep at the wheel, as a result
of putting in long work hours without proper rest.
- Faulty equipment, including brakes, tires and other vehicle parts.
- Speeding and aggressive driving, which places everyone in peril.
We work with a network of industry professionals to determine who was at
fault for your bus-related injuries, because we know that multiple parties
may be involved.
