About 63,000 buses are involved in traffic accidents across the United States each year.
The average full-sized bus weighs nearly 40,000 pounds when it is fully loaded. With such a large vehicle, anytime they are involved in a collision the damages can be catastrophic. Just like auto accidents, there are many factors that lead to bus collisions, and many of them are avoidable. Driver negligence, distracted driving, poor maintenance, poor training, drugs or alcohol, and equipment are leading causes in bus crashes.

Common Questions That
We Can Help You Answer:
How are traffic accidents involving buses different than accidents with passenger vehicles?
Typically, bus accidents are more catastrophic than car accidents due to their size and weight. Because of the size disparity and the laws of physics, collisions involving buses are likely to result in serious injury, or even death.
Who will pay my medical bills if I’m injured in a bus collision?
If you are a passenger on a bus, and the bus driver is at fault, you will need to make arrangements with your health insurance carrier to pay your bills until your case is resolved against the bus company. Often, your health insurance carrier will want to be reimbursed at the time of settlement. Tabor Law Firm can assist.
If the bus driver is at fault, who pays?
Usually the bus company will have insurance coverage for both themselves as well as their bus operator.
