Every year bus accidents and collisions cause thousands of adults and children to suffer pain, discomfort, distress, increasing medical bills, lengthy rehabilitation therapies or loss of income.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are about 300 deaths and 19,000 injuries in connection with buses each year. Not surprisingly, Florida is among the states with the highest number of accidents.
These accidents can involve:
- Buses for public transportation
- Buses run by private companies
- Tour Buses
- School Buses
The sheer size and weight of a bus is enough to cause massive amounts of damage in bus accidents. The damages will leave a victim looking for a traumatic brain injury lawyer in Florida, a Daytona burn injuries lawyer or a Jacksonville spinal cord injury attorney.
When it comes to accidents with a substantial size and weight there are also a number of factors that can cause them, including:
- Reckless driving
- Dangerous Roadways
- Improper Maintenance
- Defective equipment
