At the Law Offices of Stipe & Belote, we represent victims of serious or fatal bus accidents. These collisions have a significant impact on any party involved, whether a bus passenger or an occupant of another vehicle involved in the collision. Bicyclists and pedestrians may also be at risk of catastrophic injuries in a bus accident.
Injuries caused by bus accidents
Bus accidents could cause terrible injuries as a passenger or while riding in another vehicle in a collision. These are some of the most common injuries sustained:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Chest injuries
- Neck injuries
- Loss of limb
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Emotional trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety
After a bus accident, you should seek immediate medical care to diagnose and treat your injuries. It is also important because it creates a record of your injuries, which could serve as essential evidence in a personal injury claim. You should also contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to start building a strong case for your claim to help you seek fair and just compensation.
