Oklahoma City School Bus Accident Causes Injuries

By Car Accident Help on January 21, 2013

A female motorist was injured in an Oklahoma traffic accident after the vehicle she was driving collided with a school bus. As reported by The Oklahoman, the school bus accident occurred near SW 129 and May Avenue in Oklahoma City. Officials have not released information regarding who was responsible for the crash. The mother of the car’s driver says that her daughter was injured in the Oklahoma City school bus crash. No children were injured in the collision.

School bus accidents often result in injuries because of the size and weight of the vehicle, but it is often occupants of other vehicles who suffer the majority of the injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 1,564 people were killed in school transportation-related crashes between the years 1998 and 2008. The majority of those fatalities (72 percent) involved occupants of other vehicles.

Because of the potential injuries involving children, all school bus accidents must be carefully investigated. Who was responsible for the crash? Was the bus driver properly licensed? Should the school bus driver face a suspension or termination for driving carelessly or recklessly? Was either motorist driving while distracted or intoxicated?

Accidents involving school buses can result in complicated injury claims. Victims may be able to file a claim against the school bus driver, bus owner, bus company, or even the school district. This is why anyone injured in an Oklahoma bus accident would be well advised to discuss his or her legal rights and options with an experienced car accident attorney. Financial support may be available for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
