Should Buses Have Seatbelts?

There are very few seat belts on buses in the country. Because of their compartmentalized design and energy-absorbing seat backs, bus seats are considered safe without seatbelts by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Those passengers who have been hurt in bus accidents will tell you that their injuries might have been prevented if there had been seat belts on board.

Ultimately, it may just be a matter of cost, seeing as how retrofitting existing fleets with seatbelts could cost upwards of $10,000 per bus. Added to the fact that many laws must be changed before seat belts are required on buses, countless bus riders will remain at risk for the foreseeable future.

Bus Injury Compensation

It is easy to assume that bus accidents don't happen often if you've never experienced one. Auto accidents involving buses happen every day. The reality is that these bus accidents can, unfortunately, result in unimaginable harm to the persons involved.

Some of the most common types of damages awarded in bus accident lawsuits include property damage, personal injuries, medical expenses, pain & suffering, loss of income, and more.

Any and all of the above types of losses might be recoverable as compensation for bus accident injuries. However, how can you know if your claim is legitimate?

Who Can File A Bus Accident Lawsuit?

After a bus accident, victims seldom consider legal action right away. Some people do not even consider hiring a lawyer. The reason for this is that many victims do not know their rights.

It is important to keep in mind that there is a statute of limitations that mandates that a lawsuit be filed within a particular period of time in order to be valid.

In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for bus injury lawsuits is two years. Even if the victim suffers life-altering injuries, it is nearly impossible to seek compensation after two years have passed from the date of the incident.

Injury victims have some very powerful legal options under the law, and the same is true for those injured in bus accidents. You have the right to seek compensation for injuries (or other damages) that were caused by the negligence of another party. So, yes, a bus accident in New Jersey can very well result in a lawsuit.

Bus accidents: Why Are They So Dangerous?

Almost every day, someone gets into a car accident. The majority of these drivers walk away from their accidents unscathed every single day. But why is a bus accident so much riskier than a car accident?

Bus accidents present a high risk primarily because of their sheer size. Buses can weigh as much as ten 'normal' passenger vehicles. Because of this increased mass, the vehicle would have a hard time slowing down when it is in motion, which would make avoidance of a collision more difficult.

In addition, buses can carry a large number of passengers, many of whom don't wear seatbelts. Generally, passengers who are unsecured don't react fast enough to grab hold of safety handlebars when they collide. If they are not killed, such actions can lead to severe physical injuries such as fractures or brain injuries.
