Although bus accidents occur less often than other motor vehicle accidents, they are typically extremely dangerous when they do happen, causing many innocent people to become victims of serious injuries. In addition to the physical damage that individuals may suffer, bus accident injury victims will also likely have to cope with costly medical bills, physical rehabilitation, lost income, and a host of other issues that can be extremely taxing and debilitating.
If you have been injured in a bus accident in Connecticut, you may be facing all these issues and more. At the Law Offices of Paul Levin, we understand just how difficult this can be and, as a result, work to support those who have been unduly victimized in such accidents.
Common Bus Accident Injuries
As a popular form of public transportation utilized by many children and adults, it is critical for buses to be properly maintained and drivers to follow all safety and driving regulations to prevent accidents from occurring. Unfortunately, when these actions are not taken, innocent bus riders and pedestrians may be the ones to pay the price. Victims of bus accidents commonly suffer from a variety of injuries, including:
- Broken Bones
- Internal Organ Damage
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
In Connecticut, bus drivers are often assigned a higher duty to passengers as well, potentially making them more liable for any accident that does occur. And, in certain cases, automotive manufacturers may be held liable for injuries and accidents if they produced defective parts that caused the accident.
