Injuries to Children, Pedestrians and Drivers of Other Vehicles
Despite strict safety regulations, school bus accidents are not uncommon. The most frequent instances of school bus injury include:
- Pedestrians dragged by a school bus
- Pedestrians hit by a school bus
- Doors closing on children as they enter or exit the bus
- A sudden stop causing a child to fall inside the bus
- A collision with another vehicle
The bus company will have an investigation team from its insurance carrier on the scene within hours. You need an attorney to protect your rights after an accident. We investigate accidents thoroughly and often examine driver logs, the driver’s record, vehicle maintenance and safety records, and the condition of the vehicle.
Because of the size of school buses, a collision with a passenger vehicle often causes catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries, back and spinal injuries, disfigurement and broken bones. They may also cause wrongful death.
