Many cities use transit buses to provide affordable public transportation to the public. These vehicles can be large in order to accommodate multiple riders, and they can be difficult to handle for inexperienced drivers. According to crash statistics from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there were 1,039 bus-related crashes reported in Texas in 2021. These accidents resulted in 888 injuries in total.
Any time you are involved in a crash, there is a chance you can suffer serious injuries. When these accidents involve large vehicles such as a transit bus or an 18-wheeler, the resulting injuries can be even more catastrophic. You need to be prepared to take the necessary legal action in order to make a complete recovery following a life-changing auto accident. It can be difficult to navigate these types of claims on your own, and it is important that you have a trained personal injury lawyer handling your case to ensure that you are able to achieve a full recovery.
