13 injured in U-turn crash

On Behalf of | Dec 12, 2018 | Personal Injury

A personal injury can change your life from the moment it occurs. The trauma of the injury, combined with everything you have to go through to get medical help and care, can devastate you.

If you do get hurt, you need to know who can be held responsible. In many cases, it’s a bus driver, the driver of a vehicle who was distracted or others who are responsible for a collision. As a victim, you have the right to seek compensation from them.

Sudden crashes affect victims and their families

Crashes happen suddenly, so no one has time to prepare. Take, for example, this case out of Kissimmee. Thirteen adults were injured when a school bus crashed on the Florida Turnpike.

The incident, which happened in Osceola County, reportedly occurred because of the bus driver turning into the path of a semitruck. The bus driver had been trying to make a U-turn.

During the crash, the bus was knocked over onto its side. The semi came to a stop at the scene. It was the bus driver who was cited for an improper lane change when the Florida Highway Patrol made it to the scene.

The good news about this collision is that no serious injuries occurred. While 13 people were reportedly injured, it is expected that all the people who were injured (all adults) will be fine.

These crashes are a result of drivers taking risks that they shouldn’t. If you are hurt because of a driver’s mistakes, remember that it’s your right and responsibility to hold them accountable.
