Bus Accidents in Pennsylvania
Buses are some of the largest vehicles on our roads, which means that they are capable of causing some of the most extensive harm in the event of an accident. Because buses are considered to be common carriers, this means that they are expected to get passengers from point A to point B for a fee without any issues. Bus drivers are supposed to be some of the safest drivers on our roads but these accidents still tend to occur in the blink of an eye. If you have suffered injuries as a result of a bus accident, it is important that you seek the help of an accident attorney.
