The American Public Transportation Association has indicated that Americans took 10.4 billion trips on public transportation in 2016. “People board public transportation 35 million times each weekday. Since 1995, public transit ridership is up 34 percent, outpacing population growth, which is up 21 percent, and vehicle miles traveled (VTM), which is up 33 percent.”
Injuries Caused by Public Transportation Accidents
With this many buses, vans and trains moving people across America on a daily basis, it’s no surprise that public transportation accidents are a frequent cause of debilitating injuries to commuters in this country.
If you’re a commuter who regularly uses public transportation, then you know that when you’re on that bus or train, you’re not the one in control of the vehicle and you have no way of knowing whether your driver or conductor is exercising reasonable caution in getting you to your destination. When bus drivers take turns too fast, or don’t slow down for speed bumps, or when train conductors drive too fast for a given track, collisions or even derailment can occur, which can result in catastrophic injuries for passengers.
Commuters on public transportation, as well as those close to a bus or train at the time of an accident, are at risk for injury. These injuries may include broken bones, fractures, traumatic brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries.
