The buses of the Greensboro Transit Authority offer a convenient method for getting around the city, but buses, including school buses and chartered motor coaches, add to the risk of accidents. In fact, the most currently available annual crash data available from the North Carolina Department of Transportation reports nine deaths and 548 people injured in 1,888 collisions involving buses.
Pedestrians, occupants of other vehicles, and bus passengers may suffer serious injuries in a crash that may be caused by the negligence of the driver of the bus or the driver of another vehicle involved in the crash. It takes an experienced Greensboro bus accident attorney to analyze the evidence to determine the cause of a bus crash and build a strong case against the parties responsible for causing it, which is why people have come to trust and rely upon the skills and knowledge of the personal injury attorneys at the Clauson Law Firm, PLLC.
Bus accidents usually happen because of negligence, careless conduct or reckless behavior. Some of the common causes of crashes and the parties who may be responsible for causing them include:
Collisions with other vehicles and pedestrians may have tragic consequences with injuries or fatalities to passengers on the bus, occupants of other vehicles, people waiting to board, pedestrians and others. Traumatic brain injuries, lacerations, broken bones, and other serious injuries requiring extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation may occur entitling you to be compensated by the parties responsible for causing the crash.
If you are injured in a bus accident, statements you make at the scene about possible causes of the crash or about the extent of your injuries can hurt your claim for compensation. Do not discuss the accident with anyone representing the company or municipal agency that owns the bus or with investigators or adjusters working on behalf of insurance carriers for any vehicles involved in the collision.
