Types of Bus Accidents
Bus accidents can result from the negligence of bus drivers or the organizations they work for. Bus crashes can occur for numerous reasons. Some of the most common include:
- Collisions with other motor vehicles
- Slip and fall accidents on bus stairs
- Injuries at bus stops
- Passengers falling due to sharp turns or unexpected braking

Bus Accident Statistics
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, there were 9,000 bus crashes in 2009 that caused injury in the United States. While that figure is down from the 11,000 such crashes in 2008, bus safety is still a major concern, particularly when the bus is a school bus. While school bus accidents are rare, they do happen on Indiana roads—in fact, the beginning of the fall 2012 school year saw at least 5 different school bus accidents in our state.
