Types of Bus Accidents

More often than not, a bus accident results in catastrophic injuries to those involved. Motorists in smaller vehicles who are hit by a bus are likely to suffer a head injury, back injury, or another life-changing injury. People on a bus, when it crashes, can be just as severely injured because most buses have no onboard safety equipment for passengers to use, like seatbelts or restraints. In a particularly violent bus accident, passengers can be thrown about or even ejected from it, resulting in awful injuries.

We can help with bus accident cases involving:

  • Rollover accidents
  • T-bone accidents
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Drunk bus drivers
  • Multivehicle collisions
  • And more

Common Injuries in Bus Accidents

Bus accidents can result in severe injuries because of the size and weight of these vehicles. Passengers, pedestrians, and occupants of other vehicles may all be at risk. Understanding the common injuries associated with bus accidents is crucial for building a strong case. Some of these injuries include:

  • Whiplash and Neck Injuries: Sudden stops or impacts in a bus accident can cause whiplash, resulting in neck pain and discomfort.
  • Head Injuries: Passengers may suffer head injuries, ranging from concussions to more severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), especially in the absence of proper safety measures.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: The force of a bus collision can lead to spinal cord injuries, affecting mobility and causing long-term complications.
  • Broken Bones: Fractures and broken bones are very common in bus accidents, particularly when passengers are thrown about during a collision.
  • Cuts and Bruises: Minor injuries like cuts, bruises, and abrasions may occur due to the impact or objects within the bus.
  • Emotional Distress: Beyond physical injuries, the emotional toll of a bus accident can be significant, resulting in anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Who Pays for Bus Accident Damages?

Payment for damages accrued in a bus accident will be owed by whatever party caused the crash. Liability from case to case can vary greatly, of course. An investigation will need to be conducted to see who caused the crash and what insurance policies they hold that our attorneys can file against in pursuit of compensation.

Liable parties for a bus accident could include:

  • Bus driver
  • Bus company
  • Local transportation department
  • Another motorist
