Tour and charter buses are responsible for a disproportionate share of accidents involving mass transportation. To hold unsafe operators accountable, it’s important to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Some tour bus companies carry limited insurance and simply close their doors and reincorporate under a new name after an accident.

We handle cases against charter buses, national carriers such as Greyhound, tour buses and municipal bus lines such as the KCATA. Call 816-361-5555 to discuss your case with an attorney at our firm.
Compensating Victims Of Negligence
Many charter and tour bus companies are more concerned about profits than passenger safety. As a result, many companies hire inexperienced drivers and then pressure them to stay on the road as long as possible. Common types of accidents include:
- Accidents caused by drivers who fall asleep at the wheel
- Accidents caused by inexperienced drivers
- Swerving or stopping suddenly, causing passengers to be thrown inside the bus
- Rollover accidents caused by unsafe maneuvers
- Accidents caused by a lack of proper maintenance
Small tour bus lines may not have enough insurance to pay the claims if a large number of passengers are injured. For this reason, it’s important to act now. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can collect and preserve the evidence we will need to hold the bus operator accountable. That evidence will include an investigation of the driver’s background and bus maintenance records.
