At a time when more and more Californians are conscious of the environment and are looking to avoid the intense traffic, many people look to buses as a preferred mode of transportation. While buses are an eco-friendly, economical and affordable choice, they can be dangerous due to their size and the amount of people that they carry. Fellow motorists often fail to give buses the room they need and this, along with negligence, can often lead to bus accidents. Bus accidents occur in high speed situations and on city streets. The injuries that can result from bus accidents can range from minor to catastrophic.
The trauma that comes from being in a bus accident or having a loved one experience a bus accident can have long-term effects on an individual. Taking public transportation can be a tense scenario in itself and subsequently experiencing a bus accident can be damaging not only physically but mentally. School bus accidents are a particularly distressing incident for parents and their children. When school bus accidents occur and injuries are suffered, you may not know where to turn or who to turn to.
