Our team of legal experts can help you get through what is undoubtedly a difficult time in seeing your child injured, wrongfully or not. Even what might seem like freak accidents may happen more often than you realize, with at last count there being approximately 20,000 school bus accidents that occur each year nationwide. School bus crashes are another common cause of child injuries. A school bus usually does not have seatbelts, and if it does, the drivers usually do not do an adequate job making sure that kids are buckled up. Additionally, children have the potential to freely roam up and down the aisles of the bus. This can be worrisome for any parent, and in the event of a serious school bus accident, it increases the risk of potential child injuries. Injuries can also occur when the bus is stopped. The majority of on-board bus-related injuries happen when children are boarding the bus. This is most often seen when a bus stops and another passenger vehicle hits a kid when they are loading, unloading, or crossing in front of the bus. Bus crashes can be complicated and there could be many different negligent parties involved.
