Bus Accidents Q & A

What causes a bus accident?

Buses are typically very safe vehicles, but accidents can happen. Some reasons an accident may occur include:

  • Speeding
  • Failure to follow bus safety guidelines
  • Negligent driving
  • Driving under the influence
  • Maintenance neglect
  • Defective design

A bus accident can also be caused by or involve another vehicle. You may also be a subject of a bus accident as a pedestrian or cyclist. Some people even experience an injury getting on or off the bus. No matter the type of bus accident, if you have pain and dysfunction as a result, the team at Injury Care Chiropractic can help.

What types of injuries happen in a bus accident?

A bus accident can cause injuries that range from mild to severe. Because buses have a unique design, injuries can differ from those experienced in a regular automobile.

If you’re a party to a bus accident, you might experience:

  • Soft tissue injury
  • Broken bones
  • Sprains
  • Whiplash
  • Bruising
  • Concussion
  • Internal organ damage
  • Bleeding
  • Head injuries

Even if you feel fine after a crash, it’s important to get checked out by the team at Injury Care Chiropractic. The effects of your injuries may not show up for some days or even weeks following the incident.

How are injuries resulting from a bus accident treated?

Getting medical treatment as soon as possible after a bus accident is imperative. The sooner you’re diagnosed and receive care, the better your chance of a full recovery.

The team at Injury Care Chiropractic develops a treatment plan based on your particular injuries and complaints. They provide thorough physical exams, digital X-rays, and other screenings to evaluate your injuries. Treatment may include:

  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Chiropractic manipulation and adjustments
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Hydromassage
  • Deep heat therapy
  • Electrical stimulation therapy
  • Orthopedic braces and support
  • Cold laser therapy

If you can’t get relief and restoration of function with these conservative treatments, the team may offer a medical pain management referral or refer you to an orthopedic specialist.
