Legal Help for the Injured

Akron Bus Accident Lawyers

Buses are an efficient and cost-effective means of transportation for school children as well as the public. However, they can also be dangerous. Bus passengers do not have the same safety equipment that is frequently found in cars, such as seat belts and airbags. Pedestrians must be aware of the blind spots around a bus that is in motion, especially while it is backing up. Other drivers on the road should carefully navigate buses that may release passengers.

You likely sustained significant injuries if you have been involved in a bus accident. While the idea of pursuing funds through a lawsuit may seem overwhelming, doing so could lead to recovering compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and a number of other losses. Our Akron bus accident lawyers at KNR are dedicated to making the legal process as smooth as possible. We have the knowledge and resources to help your case succeed.

Common Causes of Bus Accidents in Akron

Due to their large size, buses are capable of creating a tremendous amount of force. Whether it collides with a car, a motorcycle, truck, or another vehicle, a bus has the potential to completely destroy anything with which it comes into contact.

Oftentimes, the accident could have been avoided if not for the recklessness or negligence of another person. When this is the case, knowing the cause of the accident is the first step to recovering compensation for your losses.

Causes that are often identified in bus accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Speeding
  • Switching lanes without yielding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Mechanical issues
  • Driving while drowsy
  • Distracted driving

Common Injuries in Bus Accidents

Since bus accidents commonly involve more force, the injuries sustained tend to be more severe. When smaller vehicles are involved in bus accidents, injuries can be significant. For this reason, bus accidents are considered to be extremely serious.

Injuries likely to result from a bus accident include:

Compensation After an Akron Bus Accident

When you are involved in a bus accident, you may pursue a personal injury claim if another person caused the accident. Insurance companies representing public schools or large organizations often discourage victims from seeking compensation for their injuries. You may be offered a low settlement or be intimidated into refraining from filing a lawsuit.

The best way to maximize the chance of your case being successful is by seeking the help of our dedicated legal team at KNR. Our bus accident attorneys can guide you through the entire process, ensuring you remain involved and informed.

  • Medical expenses
  • Physical limitations
  • Disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income
  • Loss of consortium, or loss of relationships

Buses are far more dangerous that most people realize. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly 134 people are killed in school bus accidents every year. Of all bus accident victims, only 8 percent of the fatalities are represented by those actually riding the buses. Most of the fatalities in these accidents are drivers and passengers of other vehicles. For every person who is killed in a bus accident, many more receive injuries that gravely impact their lives.

If a person is killed in a bus accident, their surviving family members can seek the following through a wrongful death lawsuit:

  • Loss of income
  • Loss of prospective inheritance
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of comfort and society
