Common causes of bus accidents

There could be many causes that lead to a bus accident, many of which are preventable or related to negligence. These are some of the most common causes of bus accidents in the OKC area:

Inadequate or poor training

When the operator of a bus is not properly trained, it could put passengers and everyone else on the road at risk. Buses make wide turns and have substantial blind spots, so a certain amount of skill is required to drive them without incident.


Bus drivers tend to work long hours, and when they push their limits, they could be so dangerously fatigued that the likelihood of an accident increases.

Distracted or intoxicated

If a bus driver is intoxicated or distracted, they would like the proper reaction time or ability to make sound judgment calls that keep their passengers safe.

Poor bus maintenance

Sometimes, the bus itself is unsafe. Tire blowouts, problems with the ignition, and brake failure could all result in a serious 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
  • Lacerations
  • 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. This is 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 and help you seek fair and just compensation.
