Man injured in collision with METRO bus on Rainier Avenue South

Thumbnail image for King County Metro.jpgYesterday I blogged about the issues and concerns specific to collisions involving public transit busses, particularly King County METRO busses. Little did I know that as I was typing that blog, a man was being cut from his car and transported to Harborview Medical Center after a collision with a METRO bus at the intersection of Rainier Avenue South and South Brandon Street. For more information about the crash, read the article here.

It's like getting hit by a bus

King County Metro.jpgWe've all heard of King County METRO. It Is the government agency that operates the public bus service in King County. I've represented people injured in all kinds of claims involving King County METRO busses. I've represented pedestrians hit by busses, car drivers and passengers injured when their vehicle was hit by a bus, and bus passengers injured when the bus is involved in a collision. Sometimes those collisions are the bus driver's fault. Other times they are the fault of the person driving a car. In every case, there is a specific procedure you or your lawyer need to follow to make sure the claim is handled properly.

A bus accident can be scary and may require legal protection

When a person is injured by a bus, it can be extremely scary. People may walk away from an accident happy just to have survived. Sadly, many people are not that lucky. Whether a person suffered injuries as a passenger on the bus, in a car or as a pedestrian, it can be difficult for them to know where to go from here.

Staying safe near transit buses

In large cities like Seattle, mass transit systems are extremely important. City busses allow large groups of people to easily and cost-effectively move around the city. Without a proper mass transit system, many people who could not afford cars could be stranded and others would be stuck dealing with even larger amounts of traffic. While city buses provide a valuable service to the residents of Seattle, they can also pose some danger. These large buses can easily cause serious injuries to pedestrians and other drivers should a bus accident occur.

How can you tell if a coach bus is safe?

When people think about traveling by bus, they may think about a school bus. While a school bus is an important method of travel for many of Washington State's children, other buses are frequently used by Washington residents. From city buses to coach buses, bus travel is important for many residents on a day-to-day basis. Therefore, it is important that this method of transportation is safe. Just like with other modes of transportation, the risk of serious accidents increases if proper safety measures are not taken.

Child restraint systems and bus accidents

Many Washington residents understand the importance of child safety seats and restraint systems. These devices help keep even the youngest children and babies safe as they travel in cars. Without the proper use of a car seat or restraint system, young children can be violently thrown around in an accident and sustain serious -- even fatal -- injuries. In some situations, school buses use child restraint systems to keep young children safe. These systems need to be maintained and updated to ensure they are in good working order for the children who rely on them.

School bus safety in Washington

Most Washington parents only want the best for their children, so each morning they pack their children up and send them to school. For many of these children, that means a ride on a school bus. These large commercial vehicles are then responsible for ensuring that people's children get to and from school safely.

Are commercial bus drivers subject to federal regulation?

People frequently travel in cars and other smaller passenger vehicles to get from place to place. However, in large cities, passenger vehicles share the roads with larger vehicles meant for mass transit -- generally buses. While some busses are meant for shorter trips, other buses can carry people across the state of Washington and even across the country. Passengers want to ensure that they are safe on these buses, and may, therefore, wonder if these bus drivers are subject to federal regulations.
