Experienced Chicago Bus Accident Lawyers
Along with other forms of public transportation, many people in Chicago ride the bus to commute to work, school, or to travel across the country. As with other motor vehicles, buses are not immune from roadway accidents. However, due to the size, weight, and number of passengers involved, bus accidents can often be more devastating than regular motor vehicle accidents.

Each year, nearly 500,000 school buses are used to transport our children to school each day. According to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) study conducted for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), each year there are approximately 300 buses involved in fatal bus crashes. Because buses are typically filled with passengers, the total number of people killed each year in bus accidents far exceeds that number. Many of the fatal bus accidents involve children struck or run over by a school bus, or involve bus rollovers or intersection collisions.
