Transit Bus Accidents in Ohio
A collision with a large transit bus could result in significant casualties, and Cleveland has a disproportionately high number of incidents involving transit buses. According to national statistics, approximately 63,000 buses of various types are involved in accidents each year. There are approximately 14,000 injuries and 325 deaths reported in transit bus crashes each year.
Many car accident victims struggle to understand their rights in time to defend themselves after a collision, and the moments after a collision are critical in determining whether or not your compensation claim will be successful. Most people are unaware of state laws, insurance coverage, or what to do if they are injured in a car accident, making it difficult to file a personal injury claim.
