Deadly Bus Accidents

More individuals utilize public transportation, and many parents send their children to school, instead of driving them, on the school bus. Children travel on buses, additionally, for school-related activities daily, including sporting events and field trips.

The boost in the number of passengers on buses can lead, as well, to an increase in the number of deadly bus accidents. Injuries sustained during an accident on the bus are often worse than those injuries sustained during a normal passenger vehicle collision; this is because buses normally do not have seatbelts.

When the bus, as a result, is involved in a collision, passengers get tossed about and thrown into ceilings and walls, which can cause catastrophic injuries, and require immediate attention of a personal injury attorney who is well-qualified.

Various bus injuries can result from the bus being embroiled in a collision, passengers being tossed forward when the bus operator slams on the brakes, personal belongings and bags become airborne and hit passengers, and slip and falls occur when exiting or entering the bus, et al.
