Injuries Caused by Bus Accidents
Buses are large and hard to maneuver in city streets. They require the
utmost care when being driven. It may be difficult to see smaller vehicles,
bicycles and motorcycles and for this reason care and patience are necessary.
San Francisco city buses generally have video on board from many angles
and these videos are a tremendous help in supporting a case. It is important
to get that evidence right away.
Buses are large, fast vehicles with the capacity to hold many passengers.
This means that they are often bulky, large, and top heavy. Buses are
often difficult to maneuver and require training by a skilled driver in
order to safely operate. These large vehicles are also prone to design
defects and risks associated with weather and wind, human error and weight
distribution. Any over compensation on behalf of the driver could result in
catastrophic injuries for bus passengers, pedestrians, or passengers of other vehicles.
Victims can suffer all types of injuries, including:
In some very unfortunate cases, passengers may even be killed. If you are
suffering as a result of a bus, shuttle, or trolley accident, you may
be entitled to receive compensation. Family members of deceased individuals
may also be eligible to file
claims for the damages caused.
