The Department of Transportation reports that over 250 deaths and 20,000 injuries occur each year as a result of bus accidents in the United States. Although buses are generally safe, when accidents do occur, injuries can be especially severe. Buses may not be equipped with seatbelts, and in an accident, passengers may be tossed around. As a result, injuries are quite common. Some injuries that may occur due to bus accidents include:
- Head trauma, concussions, and traumatic brain injury
- Back and neck injuries
- Lacerations, bruises, and abrasions
- Broken bones, sprains, and strains
These injuries range from minor to life-threatening. Passengers injured in a bus accident often receive little guidance regarding how to pursue compensation. In these cases, an experienced bus accident attorney is critical. When you or a loved on travel by bus, you put your trust in the bus company to ensure that a competent, experienced driver is in control of the bus. We will work to determine if the accident was due to the negligence of the driver, a mechanical problem of the bus, or the fault of a third-party. Regardless, we will work to get you the deserved recovery from all liable parties.
