Bus Accident Lawyers

Millions of people depend on buses for their daily activities. The National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL) Transportation Review 2020 report states that about 480,000 school buses transport 26 million children to and from school daily. About 967,457 buses were registered in the U.S. that same year. [1]

While the number of bus accidents remains relatively low, the injury and fatality rates from these collisions are far too high. If you sustained an injury in a bus accident, contact the Colorado and Arizona personal injury attorneys of Ramos Law Firm now for a complimentary case evaluation.

National Bus Accident Statistics

Accidents involving large trucks or buses account for about 12 percent of all fatal traffic accidents on U.S. roadways. Of the more than 5 million nonfatal crashes in 2020, buses were involved in nearly 45,000 of them.

Bus accidents account for a relatively small number of accidents across the country. Federal and state regulations continue to work towards increased safety and lower those numbers even further. 

The types of buses that were involved in the 2019 fatal crashes include:

  • 84 school buses
  • 15 Motorcoach buses
  • 78 transit buses [2]

School Bus Accidents

School bus safety is a major concern for every parent. When a negligent driver hits a school bus full of children, family members of each child hold their collective breath until they know the kids are okay. You and every passenger’s loved ones count on bus drivers to handle the vehicle responsibly.

When a driver fails to pay attention because of exhaustion, distraction, or poor training, the repercussions devastate everyone. If you or your loved one endured an injury in a bus accident, contact your attorney as soon as possible. You may be able to file a complaint against the driver or bus company and receive compensation for your injuries and losses.

Bus Accident Frequently Asked Questions

It’s typical for bus companies to offer victims a settlement for their injuries. However, we highly recommend that you do not sign any papers or accept any money until you speak with your accident attorney. Your attorney will help ensure that your compensation is fair and reasonable and considers medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Speak with your attorney as soon as possible. They will help you determine whether you have a case and who should pay for your injuries. Your attorney will need the case facts so they can begin accident investigations and decide how you should proceed.

If you were hit by a car while waiting at a bus stop, you should ask your attorney about filing a complaint against the driver. However, if you were hit by a bus, they may take responsibility. You should speak to a highly skilled accident attorney before making decisions or signing papers. Neither the bus company nor a car driver may offer you what you need to recover lost wages, medical bills, rehabilitation, or your pain and suffering. Your attorney will fight for you and help you get what you deserve.
