   Buses are one of the most common forms of transportation in large cities like Chicago. The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) operates hundreds of buses daily through the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and the Pace suburban bus system. In addition to these, thousands of children ride on school buses each day.

With all of these buses traveling throughout the city daily, accidents happen. In 2007, more than 600 buses were involved in accidents in Illinois according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Why Buses Crash

Bus accidents can be caused by a number of factors, such as:

  • Driver negligence
  • Defective equipment
  • Dangerous roadways
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Improper bus maintenance

  

Rollover accidents are more likely to result in serious or fatal injury than many other types of car accidents. While recent changes in design and electronic stability control have significantly reduced the number of rollover accidents in the Chicago area, hundreds of people are still injured or killed in these accidents in Illinois every year.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a rollover accident, please contact Harvey L. Walner & Associates, LTD. or call 312-800-0000 today to schedule a free consultation with a dedicated Chicago auto accident attorney.
