What are some common injuries from school bus accidents?
Most school buses don’t have any safety gear. So, your children are riding on these buses without seatbelts. This is one of the factors that makes school bus accidents different from normal car accidents. When school buses are involved in accidents, passengers can sustain a variety of injuries. Some of the most common include:
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
- Organ damage
- And Death
