Bus Accidents | Bay Area Transportation Authority Bus Injuries

I recently read about several people who were injured in Bay Area Transportation Authority (BATA) bus accidents.  Four people have been injured this year due to improper safety belts and harnesses which were either not attached to their wheelchairs or other devices or which were not attached at all.  These injuries particularly affected senior citizens and people with disabilities.  According to the report, BATA officials are responding by inspecting safety equipment and offering additional training to their employees.  Since the injuries that have happened so far this year have been very severe, such as a fractured skull, bruises, and other head injuries, bus passengers should be sure to request all safety measures be used for themselves or people in wheelchairs.

If you or someone you know is injured in an accident like this, they are able to file a claim for Michigan No Fault insurance benefits.   Depending on the severity of their injuries, they may also be able to file a lawsuit seeking additional damages for injuries not compensated by the No Fault Act.
