Prison Bus Accidents

prison bus accident

As passengers on a prison bus, guards and prisoners are almost always considered negligence-free. In other words, unless special circumstances exist, these passengers did not play any role in causing the accident. This is contrasted with the prison bus driver who may or may not have been responsible for the accident. Of course, prison bus accidents can occur for many reasons including:

  • Negligence of the prison bus driver
  • Negligence of another motorist
  • Defective equipment on the prison bus which may be the fault of the vehicle manufacturer
  • Defective tires which may be the fault of the tire manufacturer
  • Improper maintenance which may be the fault of the prison bus owner or a third-party
  • Improper repairs which may also be the fault of the prison bus owner or a third-party
  • Poor road conditions which may be the fault of the State or a third-party construction company
  • And many others
