As Scary As It Gets

There is nothing scarier for a parent than getting a phone call informing them their child has been in an accident. School buses should be safe. However, we know that they do happen and they have the ability to affect numerous groups of people:

  • The passengers on board who are usually unrestrained in their seats
  • The school bus driver
  • Passengers in vehicles struck by a school bus
  • Third-parties like bicyclists and pedestrians

School buses are large and heavy vehicles and the injuries to any party involved in a crash can be severe. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries after a bus crash:

Please know that each of these injuries will require medical care that can become costly for the victims. In cases of severe injuries, a victim may need extensive surgery or rehabilitation in order to make a full recovery.

For the latest reporting year in Pennsylvania, there were nearly 3,000 people involved in school bus crashes and over half of all school bus crashes caused an injury.

We know that these crashes often occur due to vehicle failure or driver error. All bus companies and agencies must regularly inspect and maintain each vehicle so they are roadworthy each time they go out. Drivers should all be trained, have their commercial driver’s licenses, and never operate while distracted or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
