    Pennsylvania I-95 Bus Accidents

    Multiple bus accidents have taken place along various sections of I-95 over the years, highlighting the dangers of this hectic, congested highway. Also known as the Delaware Expressway, Interstate 95 has been the site of serious crashes in recent years. In 2017, more than two dozen children were injured when a Pennsylvania charter bus crashed on I-95 in Maryland. According to police officers who responded to the scene, the vehicle veered off the road after the driver lost control, overturning after colliding with a tree to the side of the highway. Though the accident occurred in Maryland, the vehicle involved was operated by a Phoenixville, Pennsylvania-based charter bus company, Werner Coach.

    Common Injuries in Bus Accident Claims

    Bus accidents can result in a range of serious injuries. Some injuries are caused when passengers are struck by unsecured objects inside of the bus, such as handbags or glass debris from windows. Other injuries occur when passengers fall inside of the bus due to excessively violent stops, or because the vehicle has lost control, such as the injuries sustained in a rollover accident. Non-occupants, such as pedestrians and cyclists, tend to suffer some of the most devastating injuries of all, due to the size difference and lack of protection surrounding them. Unfortunately, accidents involving motorcyclists or pedestrians often have fatal or permanently life-altering outcomes.

    As personal injury lawyers with decades of experience, we are highly familiar with all types of injuries and their long-term effects. We will fight to ensure that your medical expenses are properly compensated, including future and anticipated expenses resulting from long-term impairment or disability. Types of injury claims we handle involving I-95 bus crashes in Pennsylvania include:

    • Back and spinal cord injuries
    • Bone fractures
    • Bruises and contusions
    • Bulging and herniated disc injuries
    • Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
    • Cuts and lacerations
    • Facial injuries and permanent scarring
    • Hand and wrist injuries
    • Hip, knee, and shoulder injuries
    • Foot and ankle injuries
    • Soft tissue injuries (sprains and strains)

    Why Do Charter and School Buses Crash?

    Bus accidents have many different causes, but most of them share one factor in common: human error. In most cases, either the bus driver or another motorist makes a serious mistake that causes the crash, such as speeding through a red light or driving while intoxicated. Human errors can also occur on the factory floor, causing dangerous defects in the bus before it ever reaches the road. Common safety issues that cause or contribute to bus accidents include the following:

    • Automotive defects, such as manufacturing errors or design errors that result in unsafe vehicles
    • Distracted driving
    • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
    • Failure to check mirrors for bus passengers or other motorists
    • Failure to come to a complete stop at a stop sign
    • Failure to slow down in poor weather or low visibility
    • Failure to use turn signals or blinkers properly
    • Failure to yield to other vehicles
    • Fatigued or sleeping drivers
    • Road defects, such as problems with the design of an intersection or left-hand turn
    • Running through red lights
    • Speeding, which is especially dangerous in poor weather or with limited visibility, such as in heavy fog or when turning around sharp corners

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.
