Bus Accidents in Maryland
There is an average of around 60,000 bus crashes that occur each year in the United States. These crashes often result in property damages. However, there are up to 14,000 cases where victims are harmed as a result of these collisions. Bus crashes are often classified as mass casualty incidents due to the fact that they can carry a lot of passengers.
Bus crashes are likely to leave victims with serious injuries that require medical attention. We often see victims suffer severe burn injuries, broken bones that require extensive therapy, and even spinal cord injuries that demand emergency medical care. These and other severe and life-changing injuries are not only painful but extremely expensive to treat.
People who are hurt in bus crashes must seek legal guidance as soon as possible. Unlike most other types of crashes, passengers on buses are likely to have a difficult time getting the names and insurance information from the drivers involved. Working with a skilled bus accident lawyer in Gaithersburg will ensure you have the information you need to take legal action and get the justice you deserve.
