Bus Accidents Hurt Thousands of Americans Each Year

Thousands of Americans are injured or killed each year in bus accidents. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, in 2013 alone, more than 20,000 people were injured and another 254 lost their lives across the country in bus-related accidents. Because of their massive size and weight, buses are especially dangerous when involved in accidents with smaller cars and trucks.

They began to prepare my case for trial from day one. I quickly realized that the competence level of the attorneys and staff was absolutely through the roof. Proof of this was the fact that I agreed to a settlement that amounted in over four times what the defendant offered at mediation.

Common Causes of Bus Accidents

Figuring out exactly what caused a particular bus accident is always the first step in establishing liability against the company. In many cases, both the driver and the company he or she works for will be at fault, making them both responsible for your injuries and damages.

While there are many factors and conditions that can cause or contribute to causing a bus accident, the most common causes are:

Working too many hours, etc. 
Running red lights, etc. 
Rapid lane changing, failure to signal, etc. 
Engine failure, transmission failure, etc. 
Worn-out brakes, bald tires etc.
 

Common Bus Accident Injuries

Due to the size of buses and the fact that many passengers do not wear seatbelts, bus accidents can cause a wide variety of injuries, from relatively minor cuts and bruises to more serious injuries including broken bones, internal injuries, traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) and even death. When a bus collides with a smaller, lighter passenger vehicle, the result for those riding in the passenger vehicle is often devastating. Anyone involved in a bus crash or rollover, whether you were onboard the bus or in a personal vehicle, should seek medical attention immediately in order to make sure there is no life-threatening injury.
