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;
- Lacerations and significant scars;
- Injuries to the eyes;
- Bulging discs or ruptured disc;
