Bagolie Friedman Shares Bus Safety Tips Following Deadly Pennsylvania Bus Crash

Oct 10 2013, 6:10am CDT | by PR.com

Following the recent deadly bus crash in Pennsylvania, Ricky Bagolie, co-founder of Bagolie Friedman Injury Lawyers, a personal injury law firm in Jersey City, NJ, continues to push for stricter safety guidelines to protect bus passengers.

Jersey City, NJ, October 10, 2013 --(PR.com )-- Wednesday morning’s deadly crash involving a Greyhound bus and tractor-trailer in central Pennsylvania has again directed attention toward passenger safety on charter, transit and tour buses.

According to media reports, the Cleveland-bound bus was traveling from New York City on Interstate 80 when it crashed into the back of a tractor-trailer, killing one person and injuring dozens of passengers.

Ricky Bagolie, co-founder of Bagolie Friedman Injury Lawyers, a personal injury law firm in Jersey City, NJ., continues to push for stricter safety guidelines to protect bus passengers. He represents injured victims and their families in lawsuits against bus companies.

“Although the cause of this most recent accident isn’t yet clear, bus crash lawsuits can occur when there’s findings such as improper driver certification, driver inattention, speeding, flawed designs or damaged parts,” said Bagolie, adding that the most recent government figures show about 12,000 passengers get injured in bus accidents every year.

To ensure safety when traveling by bus, Bagolie recommends passengers take the following steps:

• Request driver credentials. Although specifics vary by state, bus drivers must pass background checks, a certification exam and frequent refresher courses.

• Immediately report reckless driving. Notify the bus carrier or police when problems such as speeding or drive fatigue occur.

• Only ride with reputable bus companies. Established bus operations are more likely to have solid safety records, but that’s not always the case.

In some cases, Bagolie warned bus companies can be cited for serious violations and still continue operations.

“Unfortunately, many factors that lead to bus accidents are out of passengers’ control, but that still doesn’t mean you can’t be proactive about your safety,” he added.

When accidents occur, lawsuits often entail several state law or court systems because multiple entities are involved. Lawyer fees are usually paid with case proceeds, so victims can get representation when they may otherwise not be able to afford it.
