Bus Accident Lawsuits
Bus accidents that result in serious injury or death are devastating for both individuals and families. While bus accidents occur less often than other vehicle accidents, the size of buses, the nature of bus travel, and other factors often make these accidents serious. Those who have been seriously injured or the families of those killed in bus accidents have the legal right to seek compensation for their injuries, losses and suffering from those responsible.

Bus Accident Prevalence
Bus accident statistics from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration and California state authorities are surprisingly difficult to come by, as many of these accidents are lumped into other vehicle accident categories, such as pedestrian injury statistics, truck accident statistics, and general injury statistics. One bus accident statistic offered by the NHTSA indicates that in 2008, 12 bus passengers were killed in California bus accidents. In the years between 1994 and 2004, 71 children and other school bus passengers died in school bus accidents.
Experts estimate that the numbers are much higher for pedestrians and other vehicle passengers involved in bus accidents. Furthermore, many people are injured in bus accidents each year.
Types of Bus Accidents
Bus accidents can involve city or regional buses, school buses, or other small van or bus-type vehicles. Bus accidents can involve bus drivers and passengers, as well as pedestrians, other vehicle drivers and passengers, motorcyclists, and bicyclists. Bus accidents can be single vehicle events, involving only the bus. These include bus rollover accidents — some of the most dangerous bus accidents — and bus impacts with a fixed object. Other types of bus accidents can involve individuals being injured by buses or while riding on buses. Buses may hit pedestrians, cyclists, or other vehicles, causing serious personal injury and property damage due to their size and speed. Furthermore, because of a lack of sufficient safety features on buses (i.e., seat belts, air bags, etc), bus passengers are at serious risk of injury in bus accidents.
Regardless of who is involved or the exact nature of a bus accident, these crashes often cause serious harm. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a bus accident, please contact us to discover how to protect your interests and seek the compensation you deserve for your losses and suffering.
