Greyhound Bus Accident Injures 34 Passengers

Comments (0)

Thirty-four (34) people suffer injuries in a recent Greyhound bus accident that took place early Saturday morning along Interstate 75 in Butler County’s Liberty Township.  According to police, the Greyhound bus drove off the roadway near the 26 mile marker, and struck a tree and metal fence causing the bus to overturn and flip onto its side.  Before coming to a stop, the bus slid through a cornfield along the side of the Interstate.

There were 52 passengers on the bus.  Out of the 52 passengers, 34 were injured.  Twenty-eight (28) people were taken to the Atrium Medical Center in Middletown, four were flown by medical helicopter to local hospital, and two were flown to the University of Cincinnati Hospital.

I am very sorry to hear about this crash and I hope all injured passengers and the bus driver who also suffered injuries has a fast recovery without any permanent damages.

At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our bus accident lawyers advise victims of their legal rights.  Often times, these crashes and injuries occur due to driving errors of the bus driver or the negligent driving of another motorist.

When a bus passenger is injured in an accident, they do have legal rights.  All bus passengers who suffered serious injuries may be able to make a claim for personal injuries suffered in crash.  This includes claims for pain and suffering, disability, and other similar type claims.  This type of injury claim is made against the driver determined to be at fault in the accident.

In addition, if any of the injured bus passengers are residents of Michigan, even though the accident occurred in Ohio, the injured Michigan passengers may be entitled to make a claim for No-Fault Insurance benefits.  These benefits provide for payment of medical expenses, lost wages, attendant care services, and household services.  Even if the passenger did not have his or her own auto insurance policy, a claim can be made against the bus operator or bus company.

Passengers injured in the Greyhound bus accident should seek legal representation and learn what legal recourse is available to them.  There are strict statutes of limitations for these types of lawsuits so it is important that victims contact an experienced bus accident attorney immediately to discuss their legal rights.
