    National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Analyzes School Bus Accidents

    October 18, 2010 by admin

    You need the best lawyer when you, or a family member, are involved in a school bus accident. The lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C., Reading, PA, handle bus accident cases.

    According to “Traffic Safety Facts” available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) (2008), since 1998, there have been about 414,399 fatal motor vehicle traffic crashes. Of those, 1,409 were classified as school transportation-related. Since 1998, 1,564 people have died in school-transportation related crashes—an average of 142 fatalities per year. Most of the people who lost their lives in those crashes (72%) were occupants of other vehicles involved. Non-occupants (pedestrians, bicyclists, etc.) accounted for 20 percent of the deaths, and occupants of school transportation vehicles accounted for 8 percent.

    Since 1998, 149 school-age pedestrians (younger than 19) have died in school transportation-related crashes. Over two-thirds (69%) were killed by school buses, 7 percent by vehicles functioning as school buses and 24 percent by other vehicles involved in the crashes. About one-half (47%) of all school-age pedestrians killed in school transportation-related crashes were between the ages of 5 and 7.

    It is important to find the best personal injury lawyer when pursuing an injury claim arising out of a bus accident. The lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C. have handled many accident cases in the Reading and Pottsville areas successfully.
