Bus Accidents in Nevada
Bus accidents do not happen as commonly as other accidents on our roads but, when they do occur, they lead to some of the most extensive harm. This is due to the sheer size of buses alone. Bus accidents land thousands of people in the hospital every single year, some of which sustain incredibly severe injuries as a result. Bus drivers are expected to be some of the safest drivers on our roads but these accidents still occur in the blink of an eye. A bus is known as a common carrier vehicle, which means that it takes passengers from one point to another. This also means that buses are supposed to be relatively safe. If you have been hurt in a bus crash and wonder where you can turn, you should have the dedicated help of an attorney on your side.
Being injured in a bus accident might be one of the most challenging things that you have ever faced. Some of the most life-altering injuries that stem from these accidents include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, fractures, and more.
