Maryland School Bus Crash Leaves Five Injured

By Alpert Schreyer on September 18, 2013

Maryland Bus AccidentFive people were injured in a Maryland car crash involving a school bus and a Nissan Sentra. According to a CBS News report, the school bus accident occurred at the intersection of Georgia Avenue and Heathfield Road in Aspen Hill. Officials say the Nissan and the bus sustained front-end damage in the collision. Of the five adults injured in the crash, one suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Only three students were on the bus at the time of the crash and none of them appear to have suffered an injury. The investigation into the cause of the crash is underway.

Although the size of a bus would lead one to believe that bus passengers are well-protected from injury, bus accident injuries do occur. Passengers can suffer bone fractures, severe lacerations, traumatic brain injuries, and even spinal cord injuries. In such cases, support may be available for the victims’ medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization and rehabilitation costs, as well as pain and suffering.

Injured bus passengers have a right to seek support for their losses. A bus company is considered a common carrier under the law and is therefore required to ensure the safety of the passengers. All common carrier vehicles, such as taxi cabs, buses, airlines, and railroads, owe a high duty of care to make sure passengers are safely transported. When a common carrier passenger is hurt, he or she can seek financial support from the bus company, the bus driver, or even the owner of the bus.
