New Orleans Bus Accidents Lawyers

Because bus drivers have commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs), they are held to higher standards than non-commercial drivers. Unfortunately, this does not always prevent driver negligence or error. If you have been injured in a bus accident, you need a lawyer to investigate your accident and find out if the driver did not follow regulations.

At Rome, Arata, Baxley & Stelly, LLC, our New Orleans bus accidents attorneys protect the rights of accident victims and their families. We represent people injured in accidents involving commercial or charter buses, tour buses, coaches, bus transport for nursing homes and limousines. Our attorneys have experience battling commercial transportation companies and their insurance carriers.

We Determine Who Is Liable For Your Losses

There may be multiple entities involved in the operation of a commercial transportation company, which means there may be multiple sources of liability. We will seek damages from all liable parties so you and your family collect the compensation you need for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Additional damages are available in wrongful death cases.

Bus accidents can be caused by issues such as:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Fatigue
  • Defective tires or brakes

Driver negligence is also a common cause of accidents. We will investigate the driver and the bus company’s hiring practices. Commercial transportation companies often fail to do background checks, which means they may hire unqualified drivers, drivers who obtained their licenses fraudulently or drivers who have caused accidents in the past.
