Look to the Law Offices of Michael J. Nykaza for knowledgeable assistance when it comes to bus accidents. We represent pedestrians, drivers, and passengers who've been injured or lost loved ones as a result of the negligence of bus operators. Bus drivers can be guilty of the same negligence as drivers of any other vehicle.
Typically, negligence on the part of a bus driver involves traveling too fast for the current traffic or weather conditions, failure to maintain proper awareness, failure to yield the right of way, failure to stop for traffic signs or lights, talking on phones, texting, eating, or engaging in any other conduct that can distract their attention.
The difference between a bus accident and a typical automobile accident is the size and weight of a bus makes them more dangerous, and any injuries can often be more significant. Additionally, the state of limitations in Illinois typically requires a lawsuit to be filed within 2 years. However, it can be only 1 year when involving the CTA or PACE.
