These Crashes Can Cause Major Injuries

We all probably have different relationships with buses. Some of you may be regular public transit riders while others may only use buses for long distance trips. In many cases, we are familiar with buses because our children ride the bus to and from school.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration tells us that there were 274 fatalities and more than 35,000 injuries due to bus crashes during the reporting year 2017 in the US.

There are various groups of people who can be harmed in a bus crash:

  • The bus driver and bus passengers
  • Drivers and passengers in other vehicles involved
  • Pedestrians close to the crash

Each of these groups of people could suffer from major injuries in the event of a crash. It is not uncommon for us to see the following in the aftermath of a bus crash:

  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions

For many of these injuries, a victim will need to seek immediate medical treatment. Some bus crash injuries are so severe that a victim may need rehabilitation and long recovery times. If a person misses work while they are recovering, they could lose the income they need to support themselves and their families.

In many cases, we find that bus crashes occur due to vehicle failure. If a bus agency or company neglects to perform regular inspections and maintenance, major incidents are more likely to occur.

Bus drivers should never operate recklessly, under the influence of alcohol, or while distracted by their phones.
