Over a Dozen Injured in Bus Crash
Whenever a bus crash happens, questions are immediately raised about the safety record of the driver. Buses can carry dozens of people, so only the safest and most skilled drivers should be on the road with them. Yet accidents can still happen. More than a dozen people were taken to the hospital after a Metro bus collided with a van while negotiating a left turn. The bus ran off the road about 30 feet from the intersection, but the van caught fire. Many of the injured people, including the driver, were taken to the hospital as a precaution. The people in the van also managed to escape with minor injuries before they got caught in the flames. According to Metro, it appears that the bus driver is at fault in this case. It’s likely a safety review will be performed and the driver disciplined or fired after they recover. But what about the couple that were in the van and the injured riders? Will they receive compensation for their injuries? That’s where a skilled personal injury attorney can help. When someone is injured they may be eligible for compensation depending on the circumstances. Not everyone has personal injury insurance to cover the costs, and what they receive from them may not be enough.
