TYPES OF COMPENSABLE BUS INJURY CASES
A bus accident is one that involves any of the following:
- School Bus
- Shuttle Bus
- Charter Bus
- Tour Bus
- Sightseeing Bus
- Interstate Bus Lines
- Public Transportation Bus Systems
- Any other “large motor vehicle, having a long body, equipped with seats or benches for passengers, usually operating as part of a scheduled service”
Even though bus accidents are relatively rare, when they do occur, they are deadly serious, because buses carry many more passengers and often do not have seat belts or other safety restraints. Also, because of the enormous size of buses, they can inflict massive damage to pedestrians or other motor vehicle passengers.
