Bus Accident Injuries
There are many reasons why buses are involved in accidents. Faulty parts, poor road conditions, inexperience, operator fatigue, and manufacturer defects are just a few. Your chances of being in a bus crash are relatively small, given the number of buses on the road and the safe trips they make each and every day. However, when a bus crash happens, it often has dire consequences for the victims.
Some bus riders are injured by a careless bus driver when he or she crashes into another car or a light pole. There have been a few bus crashes that even resulted in multiple deaths and serious injuries. Just because a driver has a license to drive a bus does not necessarily make him or her a careful driver. Riding on a bus can and sometimes does lead to serious injuries and death.
Another common type of bus accident happens when the bus driver strikes a car, bicycle, or pedestrian. These usually involve the most serious injuries as the victims have little protection from the massive force of the bus itself. Buses are much larger than any passenger vehicle, and being hit by a bus usually causes serious damage to a vehicle and to its passengers. Pedestrians and cyclists can be injured if a bus strikes them, and these injuries can be life-threatening.
