Wrongful death claims possible after bus crash

American travelers know the dangers inherent in road travel. We take precautions to offset those risks each and every time we take to the roads in Pennsylvania, putting on our seat belts and ensuring that our vehicles are safe to operate. However, when we travel by commercial bus, many of us fail to acknowledge that those same dangers exist, even when we are riding in a large commercial vehicle with a professional driver. In the aftermath of a recent bus crash, multiple personal injury and wrongful death suits are possible.

Improperly secured mattress leads to fatal accident

When an individual makes the decision to transport oversized items in or on their vehicle, they assume the responsibility of ensuring that those articles are properly secured before entering a public roadway. In many cases, a particular vehicle is simply not suitable to transport certain items, and the decision should be made to find an alternative means of moving the item. One recent fatal accident demonstrates the severity of failing to properly secure a mattress before driving on a Pennsylvania Interstate, and has left multiple families in shock and the beginning stages of grief.
