If a normal bus ride turned into a tragic experience for you or a loved one, our Maryland car accident attorneys can help.
If you've never been the victim of a bus accident, it can be easy to think that they don't happen on a regular basis. The fact of the matter is that hundreds of auto accidents involving buses occur every day. Unfortunately, this also surfaces the fact that each of those bus accidents has the potential to cause unimaginable physical harm to the persons who inadvertently get caught up in them.
But what kind of damages is most commonly encountered in bus accidents? Here's a basic a short-list:
If you've been involved in a bus accident, you could be entitled to compensation for any and all of those types of damages. But how do you know if you have a valid claim?
Victims of bus accidents don't usually think of taking legal action right after their incident. In fact, many don't consider seeking legal help at all. This is due to the fact that many victims simply don't understand their rights.
The law puts some very powerful legal options in the hands of injury victims; the case is not different for bus accident victims. If the negligence of another party led to your injuries (or other damages,) then you have the right to seek compensation to cover the harm that was caused. So, yes, it is very much possible to file a lawsuit after a bus accident in Maryland.
Regular drivers get into car accidents every day. And every day, many of these drivers are able to walk away unscathed from their collisions. But what makes a bus accident so much more dangerous to the health and safety of the individuals involved?
The increased risk in a bus accident is largely imparted by the sheer size of the vehicle involved. A bus can be as heavy, if not heavier, than ten 'normal' passenger vehicles. This substantially increased mass makes the vehicle much more difficult to slow down once it's in motion which makes it less likely to be able to swerve to avoid a collision, for instance.
Moreover, buses can carry a large number of passengers, most of whom are rarely wearing a seatbelt. Upon colliding, the unsecured passengers usually do not have time to react and hold on to safety handlebars. This prevents them from remaining in their seats and often leads to severe physical injuries such as fractures or brain injuries if not in death.
