   Buses are one of the most common forms of transportation in large cities like Chicago. The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) operates hundreds of buses daily through the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) and the Pace suburban bus system. In addition to these, thousands of children ride on school buses each day.

With all of these buses traveling throughout the city daily, accidents happen. In 2007, more than 600 buses were involved in accidents in Illinois according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Why Buses Crash

Bus accidents can be caused by a number of factors, such as:

  • Driver negligence
  • Defective equipment
  • Dangerous roadways
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Improper bus maintenance

If you have been told that you suffered a "mild" brain injury in the car accident, do not be misled. When the term "mild" is used it is referring to the rating on the Glasgow Coma Scale. This scale measures the initial assault on the brain and basically tells you how long you were out. It has nothing to do with the severity of the long-term damage to your brain. Even a "mild" brain injury can have devastating long-term consequences.

    If you or a loved one has experienced a traumatic brain injury, please contact the experienced Chicago brain injury lawyers at Harvey L.
