School Bus Crash Sends Dozens To Hospital

Posted By Simpson Law Group LLP Trial Attorneys Posted in:Car Accident

December 15 2018

We have learned of an accident involving a school bus and another vehicle that happened on December 19 in the University City area. More than three dozen students were taken to the hospital after the bus they were on was rear-ended as it was heading to school.

Police say that an Infinity sedan slammed into the back of the bus just before 8:30 a.m. on Genesee Avenue. The car was being driven by a woman in her 70s and they are still investigating the exact cause of the accident.

At the Simpson Law Group, we think this incident highlights the unpredictability of driving in and around this area. If you need a San Diego car accident lawyer, you can count on our qualified and experienced team to secure the compensation you deserve.

The Numbers For California

The accident we talked about above could have been much worse. Luckily, none of the children had serious injuries, but that is not always the case. Vehicle accidents in California, whether they involve passenger car, trucks, buses, or other types of vehicles often end with major injuries. In fact, California has more deadly car crashes than any other state.

For the latest reporting year, there were:

  • More than 12,000 serious injuries (major internal organ damage, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, etc.) as a result of vehicle accidents
  • Over 3,500 fatalities due to vehicle accidents

We do want to note that even minor injuries can mean high medical bills for people. For serious injuries, the costs can quickly rise into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Do you know if the insurance companies will cover all of these expenses?

How These Accidents Happen

In state surveys, California drivers say that speeding and aggressive driving are their biggest safety concerns when they are out driving. We know that speeding caused more accidents than anything else in the state, but it is not the reason for the most dangerous crashes.

The deadliest accidents in the state occur due to alcohol-impaired drivers. More than 27% of all traffic-related fatalities occurred because of drunk drivers during the latest reporting year. Nearly as dangerous are distracted drivers, those who are so focused on their phone screens that they do not even pay attention to what is going on around them.
