Fatal bus crash leaves over 40 injured, 4 dead

If you've ever been in a collision, you know that the pain and trauma of the situation can be overwhelming. When multiple people are involved, it can quickly become a scene of devastation for parents, children and others who come to help the victims of the crash.

This serious bus accident in North Carolina left the driver, a 10-year-old child and two students dead, while dozens others were injured. The bus, which was carrying students from Clinton College and Ramah Juco Academy, had been traveling to Fayetteville, North Carolina. It's suspected that the tire on the bus blew out, causing the driver to crash the bus.

The serious collision resulted in the side wall of the bus coming nearly completely off. Several of the 40-plus people injured were found lying on the ground following the crash. The fatally wounded, a 43-year-old driver along with 21-, 19- and 10- year-old students were identified following the collision. Several of the students' parents and friends had been following behind the bus at the time.

In situations like this one, there are several people who could be held accountable for the injuries that were suffered. The bus driver or company's insurance may cover the victims' medical expenses and other costs. A tire manufacturer could be held liable if there was a problem with the tire. Even a business that changed the buses' tires could be held liable. For victims who find themselves suffering after a crash, considering all the options before accepting a settlement or filing a claim is key to getting what is deserved.
