Head-on collision of buses injures 10 people

Buses are a common sight on Connecticut roadways. While most are operated safely, they are still large vehicles that can be difficult to control. Any minor issue or mishap can cause a crash. When two large vehicles - often traveling at significant speeds - collide, there can be serious injuries and death. As the case moves forward and people are treated, it is essential for the victims and their families to think about the future by calling a law firm.

Two buses had a near head-on collision and injured 10 people. One was a school bus that had no passengers. The other was a transport bus that had nine people aboard. It is not known what sparked the crash and the investigation is continuing.

After any auto accident, some injuries are apparent right away while others take time to manifest. When a person is taken to the hospital for treatment, the obvious injuries will be treated, but others - back pain, head injuries - often show up after the person is released from the hospital. When there are head injuries, bruises, broken bones and other issues, it can result in medical costs, lost time on the job and long-term damage. People could be required to care for an injured loved one for a certain amount of time.

Having legal advice is crucial to investigate the crash and take the necessary steps to file a case. If you have been injured in an accident, you must protect yourself by calling a law firm experienced in helping people hurt in car accidents. It is important to call immediately to allow evidence to be gathered.
