Minnesota Bus Accident Lawyer
Every time you get onto a bus, you are putting your life in the hands of another driver. Although bus drivers are highly trained individuals, they cannot promise you a safe ride every time. Things happen on the road that may be beyond their control. Bus collisions and other accidents can have devastating consequences for the driver, the passengers and the other motorists on the road. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a bus accident, then contact McEwen & Kestner, PLLC right away to discuss your options.

Bus Accident Injuries
Bus accidents often result in serious injuries and fatalities due to the sheer impact of a commercial bus. If you are in a car or truck and are hit by a bus, you will most likely suffer from serious injuries. Furthermore, if you are riding in a bus and crash into something, you will also sustain serious injuries, especially as most buses do not have seatbelts or air bags. Some of the common injuries we see from bus accidents include the following:
- permanent disability
- ear and eye injuries
- skull fractures and other traumatic brain injuries
- whip lash, neck and shoulder injuries
- back pain
- severe burns
- psychological trauma
