Bus Accidents in Pennsylvania
Though bus accidents do not happen as commonly as other accidents on our roads, they are still incredibly damaging and have the opportunity to lead to catastrophic harm. This is due to the fact that buses are some of the largest vehicles on our roads. Though bus drivers are specifically trained for their jobs and are less likely to engage in negligent acts than other drivers, this does not mean that all bus accidents can be prevented. It is also important to note that many different parties could be liable for a bus accident including drivers, bus companies, manufacturers of parts, and more. This is why it is important to have resourceful legal help by your side.

However, these accidents still tend to happen due to the negligence of others every single year.
