Personal Injury Attorney - Maryland Bus Accident Lawyer

Did you know that most buses are not required to have seat-belts for passengers or crash-resistant roofs? Such a fact is quite unsettling when approximately 70% of all deaths resulting from bus-related accidents result from passengers being thrown from their seats.

We mention the above to highlight the importance of understanding the difference between bus accident personal injury cases and those involving traditional motor vehicles such as cars, trucks and motorcycles. The rules, regulations, and applicable laws that govern how traditional vehicles must be operated are not the same as those applied to buses.

Previous Experience Is Key

While every bus on the road should be safe and driven in a safe manner, school buses present a very serious concern. The simple truth is that school buses are mechanical machines and, therefore, must be taken care of the same as any other vehicle on the road. And because of this, they are subject to human error that can lead to serious problems. In addition to the mechanical nature of buses, school bus drivers are human beings, and as such, are subject to the same faults as anyone else. Simply put, other than the precious cargo they carry, school buses are no different than any other bus on the road.

Our Kids Safety is Paramount

According to recent studies, approximately 17,000 children are injured in school bus related accidents every year. The most common type of school bus incident is an accident with another vehicle on the road. Many incidents also occur during the boarding and exiting of the bus by the children while at a bus stop and other locations. There are very specific rules as to where children should be allowed to enter and exit a school bus, and when these rules are not followed, tragedies can occur.

School- bus driver's assume a great responsibility when they get behind the wheel and carry our children to their school. Should they do so in an impaired state or make other poor driving decisions, serious accidents can, and do, occur.

If you or someone you care about has been involved in an accident involving a school bus, be sure to contact a law firm that understands the important differences between bus and tradition injury law. Our firm has the experience to assist you and guide you through the process, allowing you to attend to your family and other important responsibilities.
