School Bus Accidents
Whether an inattentive driver or faulty equipment ultimately caused the bus accident, injuries can be especially traumatic to children and may impact the rest of their lives. Families rely on school buses daily as a standard mode of transportation for their children. Parents expect the school bus driver to safely deliver their children to their destination. Unfortunately, when proper maintenance and safety procedures are overlooked, innocent lives of children are put at risk. If your child was the victim of a catastrophic school bus accident, seek experienced legal help immediately.
Justice Against Preventable School Bus Accidents
Part of our background investigation includes determining fault in preventable school bus accidents. Our firm's personal injury attorneys have held bus companies responsible for accidents, which could have been prevented if the driver had properly deployed the bus' safety stop sign. We invest the right resources to determine the cause of catastrophic and fatal bus accidents.
- We are skilled investigators. The attorneys at our law firm act quickly to preserve evidence and investigate the cause of serious school bus accidents. We review police reports and meet with eyewitnesses to gather as much information as possible. Our legal team also evaluates property damages and, when appropriate, work with accident scene reconstructionists to determine if driver negligence, unsafe road conditions, or lack of vehicle maintenance possibly caused the accident.
- We devote substantial resources to determine liability. Even if another motorist is at fault, the school bus company could also be held liable for failing to follow standard procedures. We review school district policies to understand their safety procedures. Some school districts require children to be dropped off on a certain side of the street. Other districts prohibit drivers from dropping off unsupervised children of a certain age. If your bus company violated the district's standard procedures, we will hold them accountable.
- We will pursue maximum compensation. An injury to a child can be emotionally and physically damaging. Our legal team will consult your child's doctor to understand the extent of their injuries. We will illustrate how your child has been affected both in the short- and long-term in an effort to help you and your family obtain a full recovery.
