Bus Accidents

HDSMJ Trial Lawyers - Justice for You
Texas Public Transportation Accident Lawyers

Bus accidents can be devastating and can cause serious injury or death.

A touring bus carrying members of a church to a Christian music concert on Valentine's Day crossed the highway median during a rainstorm, struck another vehicle and tipped over on its side. Six passengers lost their lives and many others had serious injuries. A police officer described the bus crash as the worst carnage he had ever witnessed in his 29-year law enforcement career.

HDSMJ Trial Lawyers believed that seat belts and safety glass in the bus would have allowed the passengers to walk away from the accident. We were co-lead counsel in the trial of the case against the bus manufacturer. After five weeks of trial, the jury found that the bus was unreasonably dangerous because of the absence of seat belts and safety glass and awarded damages to the victims and their families.

The case was the first in the nation to challenge the bus manufacturer for failing to provide those basic safety features. The National Law Journal called the case one of the Top 100 Verdicts in the nation for 2005. The defendants are still appealing the jury verdict.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a bus accident, it is important to hire an experienced bus accident attorney to litigate your claim in the most effective and efficient manner. The lawyers at Harrison Davis Steakley Morrison Jones, P.C., are proud of our long record of representing people who have suffered an injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident.
