There have been a number of major accidents in recent years involving large charter buses, including Greyhound as well as other carriers. Greyhound is a very cost-effective way to travel, but many experts are concerned about whether Greyhound as well as other bus companies cut corners on safety in order to remain profitable.
Although the cheap fares and convenience of Greyhound are big draws for customers, those cheap prices can have dire consequences. Many employees may not be properly trained, and the vehicles may not be correctly maintained. Bus drivers may be forced to work longer shifts, and may not get enough rest between shifts. In some cases, drivers may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
If you have been injured while riding on a Greyhound bus, or if you were the occupant of another vehicle that was involved in an accident with a Greyhound bus, you may be entitled to compensation. You could recover compensation for your medical expenses, other out-of-pocket expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
