Currently, there are no formal statistics concerning vehicle-building collisions in South Florida, but according to a report in the Miami Herald, rescuers in the area estimated they respond to a car-in-building call every few weeks. Throughout the US, cars crash into buildings 60 times a day, on average, according to statistics published in the Herald. The fact that vehicles are slamming into buildings as often as they are in South Florida and around the country is both unbelievable and unacceptable. People should not be afraid of being hit by a car or truck while they are in line inside a grocery store or fear that their children could be in danger of being hit by a car while napping inside a daycare or even their own bedrooms.

WPTV-TV recently reported on a Marco Island plane crash that is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). According to the report, the crash happened at the airport in Marco Island, Florida on a Sunday afternoon around 4:15 p.m. There were nine people on the plane when it went down, but thankfully, no one was hurt in the crash. Reportedly, the plane, which was headed to Marco Island from Keys Marathon Airport, was attempting to land before it crashed, hitting the ground 60 feet away from the runway.

The Indiana Tech bowling team was involved in a devastating bus rollover accident on I-65 southbound on March 12, 2015. The accident happened when the bus drove into the median before spinning back onto the highway, crossing two lanes of traffic and then rolling down the embankment on the side of the road. It rolled three times, causing injuries to 21 people inside and miraculously, no deaths.

As we discussed last week in our post about the Megabus rollover, the lack of safety devices inside of a bus can easily cause serious, life-threatening injuries. According to members of the Indiana Tech bowling team, the charter bus involved in the accident did not have seatbelts.

What Kind of Damage Can a Bus Rollover Accident Do?

In a rollover accident, passengers can be tossed around inside the bus like dice in a cup, causing trauma that can lead to fractured bones, damaged spines, torn ligaments and tendons, severe cuts and bruises and, if the accident is serious enough, burns or death. Some of these physical injuries, like traumatic brain injuries, may not become apparent until long after the accident.

Accidents like these can be emotionally traumatizing as well. Panic, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress are all real possibilities after an accident, and these feelings can cause undue pressure on a person that could require treatment.

If you are injured in a bus rollover accident, you may only have a limited amount of time to file a claim. Speak to a qualified attorney at once.
