Protecting Your Children
No matter the case, if you have a child who is injured or killed in a bus accident, someone should be held liable. Do you know who, though? This is not a case to handle on your own or with a subpar attorney. You need legal representation that can handle the case.
If your child is injured or killed on the school bus, then you may have a case against the school board, the bus driver, the school district, or someone else involved. If the bus is involved in a collision, you may have a case against the other driver.
Additionally, if the child is injured because of someone else on the bus, that other party or their parents could be liable. Finally, if your child is struck and injured or killed by a driver, then that driver is at fault. You will not know who should be held liable, though, if you don’t have an experienced attorney working on the case for you
