Personal Injuries Caused by Albuquerque Bus Accidents

Albuquerque Bus Accident Attorney Explains Why Bus Accidents Are So Devastating

It goes without saying that buses are very large vehicles.  They are heavy, bulky, long, and can travel at high speeds.  Because of these factors, they have significant momentum and force behind them.  Whenever a bus collides with another object, whether that be a motor vehicle, motorcyclist, or pedestrian, there will be a large impact which can cause very serious personal injuries.

Common Injuries in Albuquerque Bus Accidents

When a bus collides with another vehicle, there will be significant damage to the other vehicle.  This is true even if the bus was traveling at a slow speed.  Motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are particularly susceptible to suffering serious personal injuries in bus accidents because they lack a lot of the protections that motor vehicle occupants have, such as seatbelts, airbags, and even just a steel shell around them.

Some common injuries in bus accidents where you may be entitled to compensation include the following:

  • Broken bones, including broken legs and arms;
  • Fractured vertebrae;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Traumatic brain injuries;
  • Amputations, particularly hands or feet;
  • Paralysis;
  • Lacerations and significant scars;
  • Injuries to the eyes;
  • Bulging discs or ruptured disc;
  • Need for spinal fusion surgery;
  • Organ damage, including ruptures or collapsed lungs;
  • Knee injuries, including need for arthroscopic surgery for a torn meniscus, ACL, MCL, PCL, LCL;
  • Shoulder injuries, including need for arthroscopic surgery for a torn rotator cuff or labrum;
  • Need for a total knee replacement;
  • Need for a total shoulder replacement;
  • Nerve injuries;
  • Need for cortisone or pain medication injections;
  • Need for painkillers;
  • Wrongful death; and
  • Many other injuries.

Any of the above injuries or any related or other serious injuries could entitle you to compensation for your bus accident.  These injuries are very expensive and may result in significant financial burdens on you and your family.  If you or a loved one has sustained any of the above injuries or have been disabled and unable to return to work after a bus accident, contact an experienced Albuquerque bus accident attorney today!

Types of Albuquerque Bus Accidents to Know

Albuquerque Bus Accident Attorney Explains Types of Bus Accidents

Many people rely on buses for their daily travel.  We pass these buses almost every day on the road as we travel to work, drop the children off at school, or run errands such as going to the grocery store.  While these buses do a lot of good for the community, they also are very dangerous.  Just like tractor trailers, semis, or other large trucks, inherently due to their large size and heavy weight, buses can cause very serious personal injuries or even death when they collide with other motor vehicles or pedestrians.

Here at the Caruso Law Offices, P.C., we understand that recovering from injuries sustained in a bus accident can be very painful, expensive, and debilitating.  While your expenses go up, your income goes down because you are out of work.  Learn about your rights to compensation by contacting our experienced Albuquerque bus accident attorneys today for a FREE consultation by calling (505) 883-5000.

Types of Albuquerque Bus Accidents

While most bus drivers are well trained and good drivers, there are some drivers that did not assimilate well to driving large vehicles like buses, did not learn enough during the training or were not trained well by faulty instructors, or are just not as adept drivers to begin with.  Other drivers may be inherently risk-takers or aggressive drivers, which is dangerous with a large vehicle like a bus.  Combine this with early morning or late night routes, and sometimes a very rote or mundane traffic route, and it is a recipe for a serious bus accident caused by the negligence of a bus driver and/or the bus company.

There are several different types of bus accidents you should know that may be caused by the negligence of a bus driver or bus company:

If any of the above bus accidents have occurred and you or someone you know has suffered personal injuries because of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation due to the bus driver’s or bus company’s negligence.
