Bus And Truck Accidents Under Scrutiny By NTSB

The NTSB investigates serious transportation accidents involving buses and trucks. Recently, the NTSB determined that the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) had not done a good job in its oversight of bus companies. Following a number of serious crashes involving fatalities, the NTSB found that there were serious flaws in the oversight and that some inspections had been perfunctory and incomplete. Only after the fatal bus accidents, were several of the companies rated as unsatisfactory and issued out of service orders. As an experienced personal injury attorney and lawyer who represents victims of serious person injuries, it is disturbing to learn of the lack of effective oversight of these bus companies that transport people across the country. Taking a bus company out of service after a fatal accident is not a solution to the problem. Just last year, there was a terrible accident in Virginia involving a bus driver who was overly tired and driving at an excessive rate of speed. The FMSCA needs to be held accountable along with the bus companies in these situations. Francis P.

  1. There is an increase in the rate of Hit-N-Run cases in Virginia since last two years. In such cases personal injury attorneys will be very useful.
