Who can be held liable in tour bus accidents?

Commercial vehicles are typically used to transport goods, livestock or people from one location to another anywhere across the country, including Oklahoma. Trucks, taxis, vans and buses are among the most common commercial vehicles. What about tour buses? The answer is yes, these are also commercial vehicles, and their drivers are expected to act responsibly because the lives of passengers depend on how they operate their vehicles.

Collisions between motor vehicles are, unfortunately, common throughout Oklahoma, often resulting in serious injuries and fatalities. In any accident involving injury or death, the question of who was responsible will likely be raised. Those who survive a collision often have different views about how and why the accident happened, but it is usually up to investigators to put the pieces of the accident puzzle together and determine the exact cause of the crash.

Oklahomans are used to seeing large commercial trucks on the state's streets and highways. In general, traveling near or around a big rig is relatively safe because the operators of these vehicles have undergone extensive training and must follow not only company polices, but also federal guidelines to ensure they present minimal hazards to themselves and others on the road. Still, given the size of these vehicles, any road accident involving these them can injure or kill other motorists and their passengers.

Motorcyclist deaths rose slightly from 2010 to 2011, NHTSA says

Motorcycle accidents happen everywhere in the country, including Oklahoma. These accidents have among the most devastating outcomes of any motor vehicle accident, with serious injuries and death occurring at a rate three times that for cars and light trucks, according to 2011 data recently released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. NHTSA defines someone operating a motorcycle as the rider and another person seated on the vehicle as a passenger, although both riders and passengers tend to be grouped together in most statistical compilations. The term "motorcycles" refers to any two- or three-wheeled motorized vehicle, including motor scooters and mopeds.
