Different regulations apply to different types of vehicles on the road. For instance, because common carriers like buses generate their income by driving and carrying passengers, they are required to adhere to a higher standard of safety. This means that they are expected to consider not only their own driving, but also the potential driving errors and behaviors of other vehicles on the road.
In short, bus drivers are trained and expected to be able to avoid accidents. Similar rules hold true for taxi accidents, when another vehicle or a pedestrian is struck.
Few things are ever certain in the courtroom, and it takes good investigational and accident reconstruction skills to be able to prove the driver was truly at fault.
Emergency vehicles such as ambulances, fire trucks, and police vehicles, have special privileges on the road because they have a vital function to fulfill. With their sirens blaring, all other vehicles are required to pull over and let them pass. Like buses and taxis, however, they also have a duty to avoid accidents.
At Marsh, Rickard, & Bryan, P.C., we have handled accidents involving vehicles of all kinds - trucks, buses, and emergency vehicles included. For more information about our services, contact us today, and we'll set up a free initial consultation to help you get the compensation you deserve.
