Seemingly minor injuries can quickly lead to mounting bills

Imagine sitting on a bus one moment minding your own business and the next thing you know, you’re at the hospital being treated for an injury. That’s exactly what happened to an individual who was riding a Centro bus last month. The bus was stopped in traffic on Old Liverpool Road in Salina, New York when a Cintas company truck crashed into it from behind.

Both vehicles were heavily damages, but what’s worse is that two people were injured due to the crash. The driver of the truck apparently suffered leg injuries and facial injuries and was taken to Upstate University Hospital. The crash also left one of the five passengers on the bus with a facial injury. That passenger was taken to Community General Hospital for treatment. The driver of the bus was reportedly not injured.

The main issues that come into play in these types of accidents are whether the at-fault driver acted negligently and whether other individuals were injured. While at first the bus driver and the other four passengers may say they weren’t hurt in the accident, very often people begin to feel the ramifications of an accident days after it occurs. In this case, it’s important to turn to a medical professional and document any injuries that may have happened. It’s also important to work with a lawyer who has experience with personal injury claims in order to seek compensation for your injuries.

Although an injury might not seem severe at first, it’s surprising how quickly medical expenses can mount even if an injury is not considered severe. Although the passenger in this incident only suffered a reportedly “minor” facial injury, such an injury could lead to something more severe such as chronic migraines or a concussion due to the impact.
