Transit Bus Accidents in Ohio
Around 50 bus passengers are killed every year in bus accidents. A collision with a large transit bus could result in serious injuries, and Cleveland has a disproportionately high rate of transit bus collisions. Over 63,000 buses of various types are involved in accidents each year, according to official statistics, with school buses accounting for the vast majority of these occurrences.
Many car accident victims struggle to understand their rights in time to protect themselves after an accident. In order to secure your compensation claim, you must act quickly after a collision. The majority of people are unaware of state laws, insurance policies, or what to do if they are injured in a car accident, which can be a stumbling block when seeking compensation. Fortunately, you are not required to pursue a personal injury claim on your own; instead, you can hire an experienced attorney to assist you in recovering lost compensation. A Cleveland personal injury attorney can assist you in filing a claim and recovering damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and other losses.
