Iowa Negligent Hiring Lawyers
Any automobile accident can be dangerous and damaging to all parties involved, but a bus accident can be particularly dangerous due to the number of people potentially involved. The lack of seat belts on a bus creates an extra hazard for its occupants, and the size and weight of a bus pose a special threat to other motorists and pedestrians. Though the driver may be at fault for the bus accident, their mistake could have been precipitated by negligent hiring practices and supervision by a bus company.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a bus accident, you need an attorney who will fight for the financial compensation that you may be due. Contact Iowa negligent hiring lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., by calling 877-327-2600 today.
Bus Driver Responsibility
Bus drivers are responsible for the safe transportation of hundreds of people each day. The responsibility and expectations for a school bus driver should be even more stringent considering their close interaction with school age children. A school bus driver who drives under the influence of drugs or alcohol could shatter the lives of an entire community if they were involved in a harmful accident.
Transportation companies are responsible to ensure that the people they hire are qualified to perform the task they are assigned for the sake of community safety. This also implies that they are responsible to make sure a potential employee is not disqualified by a dangerous criminal record or a history of substance abuse. Proper hiring practices and supervision must be in place to ensure the safety of their customers and their community.
