Bus Accidents in Wisconsin
Many residents and visitors in Wisconsin utilize buses to get to and from destinations. As affordable methods of public transportation, buses frequently carry very large passenger loads. The sizes of these vehicles often means that when buses are involved in accidents, occupants of other motor vehicles or possibly even pedestrians can suffer severe injuries.
Because buses are mass transit vehicles, they are subject to certain Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations, such as limits on the maximum number of passengers or the number of hours drivers can work. Several bus crashes involve violations of federal or state laws, which often make bus drivers as well as the owners of the vehicles liable for the injuries victims sustain.
