Whether by bus or train, injuries can occur while riding public transportation. Buses and trains share the road with all other motor vehicles, so occasionally collisions do occur. Bus and train collisions can be especially severe given the amount of forces typically involved. Buses and trains carry a lot more weight than the average car or truck. With the amount of weight and forces involved, injuries can be even more severe than typical car crashes.
Suffering injuries in a bus or train crash can be a traumatic and stressful event with long-lasting repercussions. The initial days and weeks following a crash can be particularly stressful, as medical bills start appearing in the mail, insurance company representatives are calling, and you are asked to fill out confusing forms. On top of this, people injured in crashes can suffer many types of harms and losses including:
- Physical pain
- Physical disfigurement and scarring
- Mental and emotional suffering and distress
- Loss of income due to disability
- Loss of future earning capacity due to disability
- Bills for medical/chiropractic/therapeutic treatment and diagnostic testing
- Damage to vehicle and other property
- Cost of transportation to and from doctors’ appointments
