Norfolk, VA Personal Injury Attorney Reports: Death Rate on Discount Buses Seven Times Higher Than on Greyhound

Comments (0)
How much is your life worth? What about the life of your child?

Most people would say priceless. But in this down economy, more people in Norfolk, Virginia (VA), and elsewhere are settling for discount bus lines to take them on long distance trips. But at what cost? What most people don’t realize is that the death rate on the discount busses is seven times higher than that on a traditional carrier like Greyhound.  

As a passenger, you have no control over the driver or the maintenance of the bus you are riding in. As a Virginia (VA) personal injury attorney, I remember the terrible discount bus crash north of Richmond that killed four people and injured more than 50 The cause of that crash was a drowsy driver. This crash illustrates the often deadly consequences of overworked and fatigued drivers.


If you are injured while a passenger on a discount bus, you may find that holding the company liable may be harder than you think. This is why hiring a Virginia mass transit lawyers may be your only hope to recover from serious injuries that may affect you life forever.
