Bus Accidents

Motor vehicular crashes are noted to be the leading cause of death among the age group 5-34 in the United States. Over 2.3 million adult drivers and passengers were treated in emergency departments due to being injured in motor vehicle crashes in 2009. The economic impact of these type of accidents are also notable: the lifetime costs of crash-related deaths and injuries among drivers and passengers was in excess off $70 billion in 2005.

In the US today, the explosive growth in the population is also very notable, thus resulting in an exponential increase in the number of road traffic and the number of commuters that are now using public transportation. As a resulting consequence of this growth increase, the number of injuries and deaths as a result of public transportation, more specifically bus accidents is at an all time high.

A bus is defined as a motor vehicle designed to carry more than 10 passengers, not including the driver. In 2008, there was over 840, 000 registered buses in use, here in the United States, with approximately 450,000 being used to transport both elementary and secondary school children. As a result there was over 24,000 non-fatal injuries and approximately 11,000 ‘other vehicle’ involved in bus related accidents.
