Bus Crash Statistics
Across the country each day, there are buses being used for a variety of purposes. Some buses are used in cities to get people from place to place. Some are used to take kids to school. Others are used to transport travelers to different areas across the county. Buses can be an affordable way to get around. They are also considered one of the safest forms of travel. They have just .14 deaths per billion miles. But, even still, bus accidents do happen. They can cause injuries and even fatalities.
In places like New York, where traveling by bus is quite common, it makes sense that sometimes people are involved in bus accidents.
Buses and trucks made up about 12 percent of fatal crashes on roads in the United States in 2015. While this is not a high percentage, it does show that these accidents can occur.
If you’ve been injured in a bus accident as a passenger, driver, or person in another vehicle, and the accident was caused by the negligent actions of another, you could seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim. One of the best things you can do when you find yourself in this situation is to call a personal injury lawyer.
