What Causes Metro Bus Accidents?
Although King County Metro trains its drivers and provides safety programs, accidents may happen due to operator errors and improper vehicle maintenance.
More often than not, driver error is the primary cause of King County Metro bus accidents. Accidents can happen If a driver does not have sufficient experience operating a bus. In addition to improperly trained drivers, fatigue from long shifts or intoxication can result in nasty accidents. Furthermore, King County Metro bus drivers are under a lot of pressure to keep buses on schedule. When bus drivers make hasty decisions in traffic, accidents can happen.
Mechanical Problems and Poor Vehicle Maintenance
Additionally, King County Metro bus accidents can happen as the result of mechanical failure. Mechanical issues occur when buses are improperly maintained and undergo installation of defective or damaged parts.
Following accidents that involve King County Metro buses, the bus company’s safety records and maintenance history will be investigated and reviewed. Investigations will often highlight past history that includes a number of safety violations or bad checkups.
Two Separate Metro Bus Accidents in One Day
Back in 2012, Premier Law Group’s own Jason Epstein wrote about two separate Metro accidents which happened on the same day in Seattle. Unfortunately, one of the victims was fatally injured in a King County Metro accident.
Accidents involving public transportation are devastating for the entire community. As Jason did then, we at Premier Law Group continue to stress how important it is for pedestrians to take extra precaution when near the road. Even more so when they are attempting to cross the street. Pedestrians can be difficult for vehicles to see, especially when they are not properly using a crosswalk or signal.
The death of a loved one or serious personal injuries due to dangerous King County Metro bus accident collisions can be devastating and life changing.
