Car Accidents In Connecticut
Every year, thousands of people are injured in Connecticut car accidents. As you can imagine, accidents involving school buses often result in more serious injuries for victims. These vehicles generally do not come with seatbelts, which increases the likelihood of people on board getting thrown from their seats.
Victims injured on school buses often sustain broken bones and spinal cord injuries that require extensive medical treatment. When victims are injured in accidents, by no fault of their own, it is crucial that they contact a Connecticut car accident attorney as soon as possible.
