How Bus Crashes Occur?

Think about how many buses you see each day around Toledo. They are everywhere and, for the most part, are completely safe. However, bus crashes do occur. We know that there are times when a bus crash is simply an accident and that nobody is at fault. However, there are times when a bus driver or a bus company is at fault and they need to be held accountable for their actions.

Bus drivers should always be properly licensed and trained before getting behind the wheel. They must also never:

Bus drivers must also follow all traffic laws and state regulations regarding the safe operation of their vehicles.

Bus companies and agencies should always ensure that each vehicle is regularly inspected and maintained. If a experiences vehicle failure while it is moving or carrying passengers, it can cause serious injuries to riders and other parties affected.

It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries in the aftermath of a bus crash:

  • Spinal cord injuries (with possible paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

Please understand that buses weigh much more than regular passenger vehicles. Not only are bus passengers at risk of major injury, but so are other vehicles or people struck by a bus. The medical costs alone for the injuries listed above can become tremendous for bus crash victims. If a person is disabled, the long-term costs can put a family into financial ruin.

You should not have to worry about getting stuck in an insurance settlement limbo if another person’s negligence caused your injuries.
