South Miami Bus Accident
South Miami is famous for its historic Cambridge Lawns District. This district includes about thirty homes, many dating back to the 1920s, all with unique Tudor revival and Mediterranean-style architecture. South Miami is a suburban area close to Miami, famous also for its restaurants, parks, and shops.
Since South Miami is close to Miami and other major tourist attractions of South Florida, many tour bus operators, charter buses, and public forms of transportation are available to and from the city. Generally, bus transportation is a safe way to get to South Miami and to see all that the city has to offer. Bus drivers, like truck drivers, must undergo extensive training and must submit to numerous safety rules. However, South Miami bus accidents do occur every year, and the results of these accidents can be devastating. In 2008 alone, there were 247 bus accidents causing fatalities across the nation, causing a total of 307 deaths. That same year, there were more than 24,000 people across the country injured and more than 11,000 bus accidents. Some of these people faced permanent, devastating injuries such as South Miami head injuries, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, and other serious injuries.
Bus accidents can be especially devastating when they involve children. Parents entrust their children to school bus drivers daily, and while this can be one of the safest ways to get to and from school, South Miami school bus accidents are still a major concern for parents. According to national statistics, between 1991 and 2001, about 26 children died annually, on average, in school bus accidents. More than half of these victims were younger than seven years old, and a large percentage were killed in pedestrian accidents, when disembarking or getting on a school bus.
