Whether you are a passenger in a bus, a pedestrian who is struck by a bus or the driver of a car involved in an accident with a bus, you could be suffering some serious injuries such as: head injuries, dislocation, whiplash or simple scrapes and bumps. These injuries could be the result of being involved in an accident where you were not wearing a seatbelt, because buses do not have seat belts.
The only good news is that buses often have very good insurance to pay for injuries when they are at fault.
When you or someone you love is injured, chances are your entire life is turned upside down. Hospitalization, rehabilitation and time lost from work can all add to the stress involved in a bus accident.
