Bus Accidents

bus accidentsPeople rely on buses to take them to where
they need to go. There are numerous bus companies that run bus lines all over the country. There are numerous
reports of bus accidents across the country each year. In 2009, the U.S. Department of Transportation reported that
over 20,000 people were injured and another 254 were killed nationwide in bus accidents. Since passengers on a bus
are not protected by the safety measures present in a car and cars that collide with buses are not able to withstand
the impact, thousands are injured and killed every year due to buses.

Buses Hurt Innocent Victims 

The most common reasons bus accidents occur are:

  •  Driver fatigue
  •  Driver incompetence
  •  Aggressive driver; and
  •  Poor bus maintenance

In addition to the above causes, statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration suggests that bus drivers have limited visibility on their right side as buses often collide with other vehicles on that side.

Depending on the accident, a bus can cause someone to have a minor bump or bruise or have a more serious injury such as broken bones. Other injuries can include, but are not limited to, minor scrapes, whiplash, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and paralysis. While some injuries may appear to be minor at first, it is imperative for victims of bus accidents to visit the hospital to make sure that no injury is or will become life-threatening or life altering.
