Many buses of all types can be seen in in large metropolitans, such as the Los Angeles area. Between Metro buses bringing commuters back and forth from work, tourist buses showing off famous motion picture locations, and passenger buses zipping up and down the freeways, there will always be enough traffic in the area.
While many of these buses are popular, they are not always safe. There are cases of buses getting into accidents that happen across the country every day. There are cases where bus drivers are inexperienced, improperly licensed, or tired out from back to back shifts. No matter what the cause, the risk is enough that when an incident happens, you should be well prepared.
The size and passenger load of a city or other type of bus leads to higher than expected casualty numbers. When involved in a bus accident, victims often suffer similar injuries. These can include:
- Spinal trauma
- Broken bones
- Brain injury
- Internal bleeding
- Damaged internal organs
All of these issues highlight the need for proper medical and legal care in the aftermath of such an accident. Obviously, immediate medical attention will be needed to treat a variety of possibly life threatening conditions. However, what many don’t think of is the variety of after effects. Many patients have months or years of extensive and expensive therapy and treatments. On top of that, some insurance companies could shirk their duty and try to not pay out what they’ve originally promised now that it’s needed. Beyond this is the matter of holding the reckless party responsible for the accident. The accident could have happened for several reasons, often including:
- Not signaling when changing lanes
- Distracted driving
- Cell phone use
- Failure to yield right of way
- Failure to Drive Safe for the Weather conditions
