Bus accidents can involve city buses, school buses, and tour buses.
Bus accidents can be caused by a range of factors, including bus driver error; drunk driving or drug use by the bus driver; errors in judgment by other motorists; equipment malfunction; poor weather conditions; poor roadway conditions; and traffic congestion. Chicago’s traffic is tied with that of Washington, D.C. as the most congested traffic area in the country, as stated by the Wall Street Journal on February 2, 2011.
Injuries stemming from bus accidents range from minor injuries to serious injuries, as well as death.
These bus accidents often cause victims to incur substantial medical expenses, lost wages, other bills, and pain and suffering.
