Bus accidents are, fortunately, comparatively rare when measured against car and motorcycle accident statistics. Bus accidents comprise approximately four percent of all auto collisions each year. However, due to factors such as vehicle size and the number of involved victims in a single incident, the results of a bus accident can be more devastating than smaller-scale vehicular crashes. Victims of a bus-involved accident may be left with damages such as medical expenses, auto repair costs, or lost wages. It is important to understand how to protect your rights in the unfortunate event of a bus accident.
