Bus Accidents in Hawaii
Although bus accidents are certainly not as common as other kinds of vehicle crashes, one study discovered that as many as 63,000 buses are involved in accidents every single year, leaving many victims with painful and damaging injuries.
Commercial buses are usually part of the public transportation system or charter buses used for tourism purposes. In Hawaii, one of the most frequent concerns is that a majority of bus riders are elderly and can easily be hurt.
The actions of the bus operator, like driving over curbs, making sharp turns, sudden accelerating or braking, moving while passengers are not safely seated, or shutting the doors on passengers as they board or exit the bus can all create turbulence that causes patrons to fall.
If you have been injured in a complicated bus accident, you are most likely feeling overwhelmed and wondering who you can go to for help.
