Bus Accident Injury Claims Can Involve Unique Procedural Rules
According to a study by the University of Michigan, buses are involved in 63,000 motor vehicle accidents every year. People who are injured in or property that is damaged by a government owned bus will need to follow specific procedural rules unique to filing bus accident injury claims.
Bus accident injuries
Like for all types of motor vehicle accidents, bus accident injuries vary from minor to severe and most commonly involve whiplash-related soft tissue injuries, traumatic brain injury / head trauma, broken bones, cuts and bruises. While risk of a bus accident is smaller than the risk of a standard motor vehicle accident, buses do carry a higher danger of a rollover or tip-over accident. When a bus does tip or rollover, injuries tend to be more severe because passengers are not wearing seat belts. When buses hit a regular passenger vehicle the damage and injuries are more prone to being serious because of the enormous size difference of the vehicles.
