Many factors can influence the severity of the injuries a person sustains when they are harmed in a motor vehicle collision. For instance, because buses are large, heavy vehicles, if you are involved in a bus accident, your chances of being severely injured may be greater than they would be if you were involved in an accident with a smaller vehicle.
Obeying the rules of the road and exercising basic caution when driving can help you minimize your chances of being harmed in a bus accident. However, it’s not uncommon for bus accident victims to be hurt despite taking all necessary safety steps. Bus accidents can injure virtually anyone sharing the road with a bus when they result from the negligence of a bus driver or other such party.
