A bus accident, in any form, can be a frightening experience. Whether you are hit by a bus while in your car, as a pedestrian, or injured while riding on the bus, such an experience can be awful!

Don’t Let the Bus Accident Wreck Your Life!
A bus accident can be extremely complex and dangerous. In 2014, 3,978 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). For that same year, roughly 22,000 people were injured in bus crashes. The injuries sustained ranged in severity from minor to life-threatening. The number of buses on the road continues to increase as urban areas are trying to provide more and more public transit options for residents. For example, vehicle miles traveled (VMT) for buses increased by 5.5 percent in 2014. Bus accidents range in seriousness because occupants typically do not wear seatbelts. Because of this, the type of accident is important. For instance, a collision between a bus and a car might not result in serious damage to passengers, but it might cause grave injuries to the occupants of the car. Similarly, if a bus hits a pedestrian, the injuries to the pedestrian can potentially be extremely serious. Because of these complex circumstances, a personal injury attorney can help walk you through this and know what to do.
