Common Causes of Bus Accidents
Bus accidents may occur due to a wide range of reasons. Sometimes, it’s usually because someone somewhere dropped the ball on the victim’s safety. Examples of such cases include:
- Negligent hiring practices by bus companies.
- Negligent supervision or management of drivers by bus companies.
- Overloading or improper loading of passengers or cargo.
- Defective bus equipment or parts.
- Driver’s failure to follow traffic laws.
- Inadequate training.
- Driver distraction.
- Driver fatigue.
- Poor maintenance of buses.
Serious Injuries Caused by Bus Accidents
Buses are usually about 20 times heavier than regular vehicles. This means that the injuries are usually severe whenever these road beasts are involved in accidents. In fact, most people are even lucky to survive these accidents. Some serious injuries caused by bus accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Severe fractures and broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Loss of limbs or amputations
- Severe burns and disfigurement
- Whiplash and neck injuries
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Importance of Taking Legal Action After a Bus Accident
Taking legal action against the party at fault allows you to recover maximum compensation for your injuries and losses. This ensures that you won’t have to dig into your own pockets to pay expensive medical bills or support your loved ones if you are no longer able to provide for them due to the nature of the injuries you sustained. Also, it helps hold the at-fault party accountable, decreasing the likelihood of similar incidents in the future.
