Midland Bus Accident Lawyers

1308 Reviews


Most cities have some form of a public transportation; for those in the Midland area there is the EZ-Rider system. In addition to the EZ-Rider, there are many other buses commonly seen on the Midland-area roads, such as:

  • School buses
  • Tour buses
  • Airport shuttles
  • Charter buses

Injuries occur every day on public transportation; sometimes due to maintenance issues and sometimes due to driver error. Slip and falls can result from improper flooring or the failure to maintain the floors and keep the aisles clear of debris. Bars and belts can loosen or be worn and cause injury. Maintenance issues, inadequate training, cutting corner corners too sharply, and bad judgment on the part of the bus driver also contribute to bus accidents.

School Bus Accidents

Driving a school bus can be a tough job; and driving a large box full of noisy kids, often in heavy traffic, can be challenging for any driver, even seasoned bus drivers. While school bus drivers carry precious cargo, accidents can happen. Cars may stop suddenly or turn in front of the bus. Pedestrians step out into the roadway unexpectedly. Or drivers fail to stop when the red lights are flashing stop on the bus and a child is struck.

School buses are safer and involved in fewer accidents compared with public buses, but even school buses are involved in accidents. And children are injured. The Texas Education Agency reports there were 2,126 school bus accidents in the 2010-2011 school year alone, and many of the children involved in those accidents were injured. While 96% of all school children injured in school bus accidents had minor injuries (scrapes, bumps and bruises), serious injuries such as the following can result:

  • Swelling and bruising
  • Sprains and dislocations
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Facial injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Loss of limbs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Death
