Causes of Bus Accidents

There are numerous causes of crashes involving busses. Bus drivers can cause accidents through failing to see other vehicles, pedestrians, pylons, signs, or other items. Because busses are so large, they have multiple blind spots, which inhibits the ability of the driver to see who or what is around them. Driving a bus requires training, and some drivers do not receive proper instruction or training from employers. Likewise, drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs can contribute to accidents.

The bus itself can cause accidents. If the vehicle is faulty or there has been faulty or inadequate maintenance of the bus, it can cause accidents.

Weather, poor road conditions, and other factors can also contribute to bus accidents.

Injuries from Bus Accidents

Bus accidents, like other vehicle accidents, can cause serious injuries. For passengers on the bus, problems can occur during a collision when they are thrown from their seats or jolted from standing positions, hit by unsecured personal items, or thrown into the sides or even ceiling of a bus. Busses rarely have seatbelts, which increases the chances of falling out of a seat.

Individuals can also slip and fall when entering a bus or during a bus ride.

For a pedestrian hit by a bus, the injuries can be catastrophic. Likewise, bicyclists or motorcyclists who are involved in a crash with a bus can face serious injuries. Even car drivers who collide with a bus may have severe injuries.
