Bus accidents are particularly disastrous due to the large number of commuters potentially on board, and, combined with the lack of seat belts and airbags which are standard in cars and other vehicles, the stage is set for a significant number of fatalities and injuries. While a number of factors may go into a bus accident, negligence and carelessness is most often to blame, often on the part of the bus driver. Poor training practices and inattentiveness to maintaining safety standards on the vehicles are common factors, as well. If you have been injured in an Olympia bus accident, you will need the services of an experience personal injury attorney who can ensure that the bus company and/or driver is held responsible for their negligence.
More often than not, bus accidents result in injuries for the passengers on board. Victims of such accidents can suffer spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or even wrongful death. If you’re fortunate enough to walk away from a bus accident, you may be facing surgery and physical therapy and the extensive costs that go with it. Bus accident victims are often taken away from work for long periods of time in order to recuperate and retrain themselves to perform basic daily functions again, resulting in lost wages and strain on personal relationships.
