School Bus Accidents in Pennsylvania
Thousands of accidents involving school buses take place in the U.S. every single year, though many of these are minor and do not lead to injuries. Some of these accidents lead to hospitalizations and hundreds take lives each year. These accidents occur in the blink of an eye and lead to severe results due to the fact that school buses are so large compared to other vehicles. Though school bus drivers are some of the safest drivers on our roads, this does not mean that these accidents will never occur.
Bus crashes lead to many serious injuries due to the sheer size of these vehicles alone. Some of the most common injuries that land in hospitalizations include whiplash, TBIs, fractures, organ damage, abrasions, and more.
