Iowa Bus Defect and Malfunction Lawyers
A recent report done by ESPN, found that between 2007 and 2008 alone, 85 Division I teams used bus services that had a deficient service record according to federally regulated DOT standards. Of those 85 teams, 35 used bus services that received a “conditional” status meaning they had serious violations of bus safety procedures. These regulations are put in place to protect passengers and keep them from the dangers of bus accidents. If they are not followed, bus passengers can be placed at serious risk for injury.
The dangers of a bus defect are amplified by the number of people put at risk in a bus accident. If you have been hurt in a bus accident that may have been caused by a mechanical defect or malfunction then you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. Contact the Iowa bus defect and malfunction lawyers at LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at 877-327-2600.
Manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that their products will not put people at risk of injury. The following product defects can needlessly endanger the safety of both bus passengers and pedestrians and therefore should be avoided at all costs:
- Tire Defects
- Brake Defects
- Emergency Exit Defects
- Suspension Defects
Bus accidents, whether the bus is transporting students, athletes, commuters or long-distance travelers, can have disastrous effects. When more careful oversight by a manufacturer could have prevented a crash, there is no excuse that can be made.
If you have been hurt in a bus accident caused by a faulty product, you may be deserving of compensation. Please contact the Iowa bus defect lawyers at LaMarca Law Group, P.C., by calling 877-327-2600.
