Common Causes of Airport Shuttle Accidents
Shuttle buses have a higher center of gravity. This feature places these types of vehicles at a greater risk of rollover accidents. A combination of structural problem and driver negligence can result in serious accidents and injuries for airport shuttle passengers.
Other common causes of airport shuttle collisions include:
- Reckless driving
- Alcohol or drug-impaired driving
- Distracted driving
- Lack of proper training
Shuttle buses and passenger vans do not offer passengers seat belts or other passenger restraints. Some research shows that bus passengers are safer without restraints. However, shuttle buses and vans are much smaller than a large bus. While full size buses do not commonly roll over, passenger vans often do. The lack of safety restraints in roll over accidents can cause serious injuries and deaths, especially if the passenger is ejected from the vehicle.
Common Airport Shuttle Accident Injuries
Although taking a shuttle to the airport may be a more economical and convenient mode of transportation, it can also be dangerous. A serious airport shuttle crash can cause life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Such injuries can also financially burden victims and their loved ones if they are unable to return to work.
Common injuries suffered by car accident victims include:
- Closed head injuries and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Broken or fractured bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Whiplash and other back and neck injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Wrongful death.
