Bus Company Negligent Hiring

Des Moines Bus Company Negligent Hiring Attorneys

We rarely think about the qualifications of our bus drivers, assuming that the bus company employing them would have already verified a driver’s credentials. In the vast majority of cases, a bus safely carries its passengers without any trouble. However, given the significant number of injuries that occur on buses every year, it becomes apparent that perhaps there are some very real safety concerns about which riders should be aware. When a bus company engages in negligent hiring practices, it is endangering the welfare of all who are on board or near the bus driven by the unqualified driver.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a bus accident, you need to follow the path to the root of the problem. If the accident occurred due to negligent hiring by a bus company, compensation may be available for your hardships. The Des Moines bus company negligent hiring attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., have years of experience fighting hard to get their clients the compensation they deserve for their injuries.

What Constitutes Negligent Hiring?

Negligent hiring practices are encountered when a company fails to ensure that every driver meets all appropriate legal and company requirements. A history of the following should warn a bus company against hiring an applicant:

  • Traffic violations
  • Bus or car accidents
  • Drug use
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Criminal record

Before a bus driver should be allowed behind the wheel, a company is in charge of gaining pertinent information. The following must be checked before a hire is made.

  • Social security or employee identification number
  • References
  • Validity of bus driver’s license

Failure to ensure that their employees are meeting every single requirement may leave a bus company partially to blame for any injury accidents that may occur.
