Airport Shuttle Bus Accidents
Whether for business or pleasure, a lot of air travel actually starts with a ride on the airport shuttle bus from either an airport parking lot or from an off-site airport parking company. Unfortunately, some trips never make it any further than that due to serious accidents involving airport shuttle buses.
The monotony of driving the same route over and over each day often leads to inattention. CB communications with the base, falling luggage or obnoxious passengers can cause the shuttle bus driver to be distracted. The congestion and constant construction at some of our State's airports like Nashville's airport, BNA, can cause frustration and aggression in drivers. Improper maintenance or defective equipment can cause a loss of control. All of these and many other factors can cause an accident. Worse yet, some of the passengers are standing or they are not wearing a seat belt. In addition, suitcases and other gear can become projectiles inside the cabin during an accident. All of these things can combine to cause serious injuries and even death in a simple airport shuttle ride.
As with any accident, time is of the essence in a bus accident. Valuable scene evidence such as skid marks or yaw marks can be lost in a very short period of time. The airport shuttle bus can be sold for salvage. On-bus videos can be lost or destroyed. Witnesses may move or fail to remember important details. In addition to lost evidence, while you are recovering from the injuries you sustained in your bus accident, the bus company will be busy interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence in hopes of denying or, at least, minimizing your claim. By hiring an experienced injury lawyer quickly, you can have someone working for you who will investigate the accident, demand that crucial evidence is preserved and generally level the playing field so that you can receive the compensation you deserve.
