Accidents Involving Negligent Bus Drivers
Accidents of any kind can result in devastating damages. However, bus accidents, although rare, can be even more catastrophic due to the sheer size and weight of the vehicle. Even accidents that may have been a simple fender bender between two smaller vehicles can become a severe collision if a vehicle like a bus is involved. Even worse, accidents involving buses are often preventable and are due to the negligence of the bus driver. A reckless bus driver can put innocent drivers on the road in danger and lead to life-changing injuries.
Common Injuries from Bus Accidents
The range of injuries that a bus accident can inflict on victims range in severity and have the potential to leave an individual dealing with extensive medical bills. Some common injuries that can occur from bus accidents include the following:
- Broken Bones
- Head/Brain Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
Whether a bus driver is overly fatigued or simply distracted, dangerous accidents can occur as a result. We rightfully expect that bus drivers will execute extra caution when operating such a large vehicle. When they fail to do this and consequently cause harm to others, it is often necessary to take legal action against the responsible party. However, taking on bus drivers or the companies who employ them can be nearly impossible to do alone, making the assistance of an experienced attorney an invaluable asset.
