Buses are great for the environment and provide efficient means of transport, however, they can often be dangerous due to their size. They are difficult to maneuver, they cannot stop quickly and they have a multitude of blind spots.
The other problem is that other vehicles on the road do not always give buses their right of way. The laws have recently changed regarding liability on certain types of public buses.
It is important to have a team of professionals on your side that can guide you through the legal process and explain what rights you have. Call the trusted legal team at Diamond & Diamond™ to find out if you have a case.
