Accidents involving school buses or public transportation buses often result in serious injuries that rack up huge medical bills. Every year in the United States hundreds of passengers, pedestrians, and other motorists in Texas suffer serious injuries – or worse – from bus accidents. While bus drivers and operators have a duty to navigate the roadways safely and without distraction, this is not always the case. Due to the sheer size of school and public transportation buses, these types of accidents can leave victims with severe injuries that require years of rehabilitation and recovery. Many victims of bus accidents leave the scene confused and not sure how to proceed, which is why these types of incidents are not always taken to court. However, victims of bus accidents deserve compensation and for the emotional trauma they suffered to be recognized.

By Texas law, bus line operators have a heightened duty of care and are required to get their passengers to and from their destination safely. Because these cases are rather complicated, it is important you are working with an attorney that has experience with pursuing bus accident lawsuits in Laredo. There are a handful of crucial elements that need to be addressed and proven in order for a bus accident lawsuit to be successful, including:

The majority of accidents involving buses result in serious injuries to passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers. Unfortunately, many victims of bus accidents are children, making these cases even more difficult. Some of the most common injuries that we see from bus accidents include:

  • Lower back injuries, such as slipped discs
  • Whiplash
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Cuts, bruises, and lacerations to the face
  • Broken nose
  • Dental injuries
  • Broken bones, including fractures to the ankle, knees, and wrists

By Texas law, victims of bus accidents are entitled to financial restitution for all injuries and damages suffered. The amount of compensation an individual will receive will be based on several factors, including:

  • The type of injuries suffered
  • Medical, hospitalization, and rehabilitation costs
  • Mental anguish and suffering
  • Recovery of lost wages due to being unable to work
  • Recovery for loss of any future earnings resulting from long-term or permanent disability
