There are hundreds of buses that operate in and around the Beaver County, PA area on a daily basis. Whether they are public buses or school buses, they are large vehicles that can easily cause some of the most tragic accidents. When you board a bus to get to work or school you put your safety in the hands of the operator. You hope that he or she has a clean driving record, a valid license, and does not drive distracted. You cannot always guarantee your safety, especially when someone else is driving you to and from your destinations. The team at Shenderovich, Shenderovich, and Fishman has years of experience representing clients injured in bus accidents in the Beaver County area.
As convenient as buses are for getting around Beaver County and other areas of Pennsylvania, they pose plenty of dangers to riders and other motorists. Why? For starters, buses are large vehicles that weigh more than a ton. If they are not handled properly they can roll when making a turn or when headed into a curve. If the speed is too fast for the conditions it can be very difficult to stop such a large vehicle at a moment’s notice. Some other dangers of buses include the following:
It’s imperative that you seek medical attention after being injured in a bus accident in Beaver County, PA. You should never refuse medical evaluation on the scene by the responding emergency personnel. Even if they don’t recommend going to the hospital, which would be rare, it’s best to accept transportation for more in-depth tests in the emergency room. Pain from such an accident might not present itself immediately. This is what’s known as delayed onset of pain and it can take hours or even days before you start to feel pain because of the adrenaline running through your body.
The compensation available for a bus accident injury can cover a lot of areas for the victim. For starters, you will want to ask for your medical expenses to be covered by the at-fault party. On top of medical expenses you will want to seek compensation for your lost wages and any future lost wages, especially if your injuries will prevent you from ever returning to work. Pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and legal fees can also be requested in the compensation package.
