Common Injuries Caused by Bus Accidents
Sadly, due to the sheer size and weight of these vehicles, buses often cause catastrophic injuries and/or fatalities when they are involved in accidents. Anyone who suffers an injury as a result of the accident—including bus passengers, other motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists—may bring a claim against the liable party. Additionally, certain surviving family members may bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one who was killed in a bus accident.
Bus accident injuries vary greatly, depending on the nature and severity of the collision, but often include:
- Serious abrasions, lacerations, and bruising
- Broken bones, including multiple and compound fractures
- Head injuries, including traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord, back, and neck injuries, including whiplash
- Paralysis, including both paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Accidental amputation
- Internal bleeding, hemorrhaging, and organ damage
- Temporary and/or permanent nerve damage
- Severe burns, scarring, and/or disfigurement
These and other types of bus accident injuries typically require extensive—and costly—medical treatment. In many cases, victims will require lifelong care and may be unable to return to work. This can take a serious financial toll on victims and their families on top of the physical and emotional impact of the accident.
Trust Our Firm to Fight for You
Bringing a claim against a government entity, such as Omnitrans, is a complex matter. Often, the entity will begin its own investigation into the accident immediately after it occurs. The supervisors who conduct these investigations do not always have your best interests at heart. It is therefore incredibly important that you speak to a skilled San Bernardino bus accident attorney as soon as possible.
At B&D Law Group, we can help you clearly understand your legal rights and options. We work directly with our clients throughout the legal process, offering compassionate guidance, honest counsel, and uncompromising advocacy every step of the way. We are not afraid to take your case to trial if necessary.
In most cases, you only have six months to bring your public bus accident claim; call B&D Law Group at (888) 563-4092 today for a free consultation. Se habla español.
