Tour Bus Accidents in Las Vegas aren’t usually as fortunate as one recent one. By now you’ve probably seen the pictures, they are quite stunning. The fortunate thing is that this happened how it happened. The shuttle bus was seriously damaged. The roof was basically peeled entirely back. The back portion of the bus was ripped off the sides and pushed and bent back by the roof In its collision with an overhead sign bar at the McCarran International Airport. We used the word “fortunately” earlier in the story because there was reportedly only the driver on board, and news reports of this Tour Bus accident in Las Vegas have said he did not sustain any apparent injuries.
Many times tour bus accidents in Las Vegas are not anywhere near so lucky. They can have serious injuries and deaths. Passengers are not often belted in when riding tour buses, and serious accidents can roll or come to sudden stops that throw passengers either around the interior cabin or out of the Vehicle. Getting thrown from a moving vehicle is almost always something that will result in serious injury or worse. Depending on the type of case, commercial bus accidents have the potential to be treated as commercial vehicle accidents in Nevada. Those cases can be tricky for Law Firms not versed in the details of those commercial policies, for example,
“Commercial vehicles such as eighteen-wheelers, diesels, construction trucks and essentially all big rigs are required to maintain a minimum one million dollar policy of Insurance.
Many law firms will exhaust an eighteen-wheelers one million dollar policy without a comprehensive understanding of how these large policies of insurance for eighteen-wheeler or commercial vehicles unfold. A million dollars may initially sound like a lot of money, but considering the costs of two months at University Medical Center, Emergency Surgeries and in-house nursing care for the remainder of an injured party's life is not enough. A million dollars might get you through two years of medical care thereby leaving your family with outstanding medical bills.”
