Bus Accidents Can Result in Serious Injuries and Death

Millions of Americans rely on public transportation every day, and as the use of buses, trolleys, and trams increases, so does the number of serious and fatal accidents. With more routes needed to meet commuter needs, bus companies are relying more and more on overworked, fatigued, and inexperienced drivers.

Additionally, when a bus, motor coach, or trolley is involved in an accident, passengers aboard can be exposed to unique dangers not present in other vehicles. Typically, public transportation lacks safety equipment like seatbelts and airbags. Further, depending on the type of bus, some occupants may be left to stand in the bus aisle. This means that bus passengers can sustain severe injuries when the bus they are riding on is involved in a crash.

Buses also pose a greater hazard to non-occupants than a standard car or truck. With city buses weighing anywhere between 25,000 and 40,000 pounds, pedestrians, bicyclists, and occupants of other vehicles can be exposed to incredible forces in the event of a collision, likely resulting in serious injuries, permanent disability, and even death.

In the United States, “commercial vehicle” is a pretty broad term. Many times, when a layman thinks of a commercial vehicle, they think of a delivery truck or an 18-wheeler; however, in the United States, commercial vehicles can also include fleet vehicles, passenger transports, company cars, and other vehicles used for business.
Among the commercial vehicles that most occupy public roadways are:
  • Large trucks
  • Box trucks
  • Delivery trucks
  • Semi-trucks
  • Tractor-trailers
  • Travel trailers exceeding 10,000 pounds
  • Large vans (intended to carry more than 15 passengers)
  • Taxicabs
  • Coaches
  • Buses
  • Heavy equipment (backhoes, bulldozers, large farm equipment, etc.)
Depending on the size of the commercial motor vehicle and the severity of the wreck, injuries can widely vary. For example, a crash involving an 80,000 lb. semi-truck and a passenger vehicle could result in catastrophic injuries or death. Common commercial vehicle accident injuries include:
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries (such as whiplash)
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Psychological and mental injuries
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a commercial vehicle accident, it is essential that you obtain competent legal representation. Choosing the right attorney to handle your commercial vehicle accident claim can make the difference in you and your family get the financial recovery you deserve. Here are a few items you should consider when looking for a personal injury attorney to handle your case:
  • Hire an attorney with significant trial experience
  • Hire an attorney who has access to top expert witnesses
  • Hire an attorney with the resources to take on large companies
  • Hire an attorney who operates on a contingency-fee-basis
