School Bus Accidents/Wreck Lawsuits

School buses carry precious cargo, and in most circumstances, provide safe transportation for children to and from school and to many school events. Even though school bus transportation is considered the safest mode to bring children to their school, accidents and negligence can occur that put children at risk. When a school bus wreck or accident seriously injures a child, parents can explore options to seek legal action on behalf of their child to cover injury expenses.

School bus accident lawsuits are complicated, and there are specific laws that restrict suing school districts for school bus accidents. However, that does not mean it is not possible. When a school bus is involved in a crash and students are injured, it is important for the parents of the injured children to determine what legal rights they have and whether the school is responsible. Speaking to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible is advised to begin investigating the crash and whether the school district, driver or other entities may be liable for your child’s injuries.

Serious Injuries from School Bus Accidents

It is not only the children on board a school bus that can be injured in a school accident. Others outside the bus can also be harmed and even lose their lives. In fact, pedestrians, bicyclists and occupants of other vehicles are more likely to be fatally injured than the children on the bus. According to NHTSA statistics on school bus accidents, only 8% of school bus accident fatalities are passengers and 12% are pedestrians or bicyclists. The majority of victims are occupants in other vehicles involved in the accident.

Anyone who is injured in a school bus accident or has a child injured while riding a school bus should seek legal advice. There are time limitations and restrictions to school-liable lawsuits, so do not delay action.
