Bus accidents include accidents involving school busses, King County Transit, Community Transit, Kitsap County Transit, commercial bus companies, tour bus companies and countless other entities providing bus transportation. This makes it difficult to compile statistics involving all buses. What we do know, is that due to the size and capacity of buses, an accident is usually catastrophic for those involved. Although bus travel is relatively safe, more the 250 people are killed and 20,000 seriously injured annually in bus accidents in the U.S. On average, 19 schoolage children die in school bus accidents every year.
Handling bus accidents takes special knowledge and experience above and beyond car and auto accident cases. There are countless local, state and federal government codes, regulations and statutes that apply to bus accidents. Only an experienced bus accident lawyer can provide the expertise needed to navigate the legal minefield related to bus accident cases.
