Bus Accident Statistics & Claims
Bus accidents can involve intercity buses, school buses, airport and hotel buses, and other transit buses, such as Greyhound carriers. Unfortunately, bus accidents can occur all too often especially in metro areas of high-density traffic. These accidents can lead to serious injuries and even deaths.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the following bus accident statistics in 2018 occurred:
- 234 buses were involved in fatal crashes
- 15,000 injury crashes occurred
- 27,000 persons were injured in bus accidents
- The greatest number of fatal deaths involved school buses following by transit buses
Injury cases based on negligence-based injuries related to a bus accident can involve claims against municipalities, school districts, transportation bureaus, and large bus companies. If you were injured in an accident due to the fault of another driver, you can seek compensation through the negligent driver’s insurance carrier.
However, when injuries occur due to the bus driver’s fault, the claims process can become more complex. If the bus is owned and operated by a municipal body, the procedure may call for very specific steps and short deadlines. Researching and understanding the claims process in these cases can be time-consuming, tedious, and confusing. That is why we recommend that you bring your case to our experienced and competent bus accident lawyers at MAS Law. We know and understand the laws and how to bring valid injury claims against all types of bus owner and operator entities.
Get the Funds You Need to Heal
Insurance carriers are known for offering as little compensation as possible to injury victims. While there are laws that require these companies to offer adequate amounts when providing coverage, insurance carriers are likely to try different strategies to close the case before they are made to pay a higher amount.
Some ways the insurance company could avoid their responsibilities could be through:
- Offering you a small settlement upfront to avoid paying the full amount
- Claiming you are not eligible for coverage
- Claiming a different party is liable for the damages
- Taking unnecessarily long to process and issue your claim
- Approving coverage for only certain injuries
These are only a few of the ways we have seen insurance companies avoid playing fair. We are ready to aggressively represent you and help you get the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.
