Buses are all around us and while you may be going about your day in your car and never take a second look at the bus, you may be involved in a bus accident.

How do Bus Accidents Happen?

You may be wondering how a bus accident can even happen. Well when there are so many vehicles on the road, accidents are bound to happen. There are several common reasons that accidents happen including:

  • Equipment failure
  • Improper turning
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Following too closely
  • Driving under the influence
  • Improper training
  • Driver fatigue
  • Improper maintenance

This is not a full list and a bus accident can happen for any reason. The road may not be properly maintained or a cat runs in front of the vehicles. Regardless of the reason, there is a responsible party that needs to pay for how they contributed to the situation.

Catastrophic Bus Accident Injuries

In most cases, the persons traveling in passenger vehicles around the bus who are involved in an accident will sustain the majority of the injuries. They will often be substantial or catastrophic injuries. Typically those who are riding or during the bus do not sustain major injuries or any injuries at all. Other victims do not survive the impact of being involved in a bus accident. Some of the most common bus accident injuries we see are:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Permanent scars
  • Burns
  • Whiplash
  • Back injuries like herniated discs
  • Disfigurement
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Paralysis
  • Internal bleeding or organ damage
  • Neck injuries
  • Amputations

Many of these injuries will take months if not years to recover from. Some do not have the possibility for recovery at all. Your life has been completely altered and someone will have to answer for this, which is where a Lawrenceville bus accident attorney comes in. We will investigate your claim and build a case against the negligent and liable parties.
