New Jersey Bus Accidents & Injuries
Bus accidents are not as common on our roads in New Jersey as other types of accidents. However, when they do occur, they tend to cause some of the most severe damage. For instance, between 2007 and 2016, one student was reported to have died in a school bus accident. What’s more, 173 of these accidents resulted in serious injuries throughout New Jersey. Bus drivers are supposed to be among the safest drivers on our roads, but these accidents happen year after year. If you have been injured in a bus accident that was not your fault, you should consult with a reputable attorney.
It can be difficult to deal with the aftermath of a bus accident. This is especially true if you have suffered significant injuries. The following are some of the most serious injuries caused by a bus accident:
