Given the great variety of busses, there are many types of accidents which may occur. These accidents can be caused by a number of different situations.
Dangers of Busses
Individuals may be boarding and un-boarding busses constantly, thus the bus is forced to stop and go, which can cause great hazards on the roadway as well as to pedestrians in the surrounding area. Thus, there are several dangers presented to those riding busses.
Some of these dangers include:
- Accidents boarding the bus
- Accidents departing from the bus
- Accidents with other vehicles
- Bus fights
- Unprotected passengers
- Unqualified bus drivers
Of course, there are several other types of dangers that post a threat to all the individuals riding the bus as well as individuals in other vehicles. These dangers come in the form of an accident with another vehicle.
Common Bus Accidents
As busses are used for many different reasons, there are many different causes and types of accidents, while these accidents may not always be at the fault of the bus driver. Many drivers fail to recognize the restrictions that a large bus possesses, especially when they are full of people.
A few common bus accidents include:
- Bicycle accidents
- Blind spot accidents
- Child-crossing accident
- Head-on collisions
- Pedestrian accidents
- Rear-end collisions
- Side impact collisions
- Speed related accidents
- Sudden lane changes
- Texting while driving

Following these types of accidents, there will typically be injuries as these are extremely large vehicles and carry a great amount of force.
Types of Bus Accident Injuries
In most cases, the severity of the accident injuries is related to the type of bus accident which occurred. As one can imagine, a bus accident with a pedestrian or bicyclist would most likely cause more injuries that one with a larger vehicle. Of course, this will typically depend on the speed of the accident and other factors as well.
Some types of bus accident injuries include:

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Working at Phillips Law Group has been great the 1st few years in I noticed how well organized and run this Firm was from Intake to Settlement the Client has the expertise of a staff member uniquely qualified for the particular stage of each Clients claim and all other Law firms try to emulate what we do here but none quite get it right because they lack one major component “Compassion”. We are a FAMILY not just a group of people/employees. We care deeply about each other and our clients’ we are considerate, compassionate and make sure that all our Clients’ needs are met from beginning to end. That’s because we treat our clients just like we treat each other. Nothing like walking through the office and saying Hello to fellow employees who always seem to be smiling. 16yrs in and it only seems to be getting better.
Phillips law group is a great firm! Caroline is great.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.

Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
Sophia H is very helpful.
