School bus accidents are terrifying, whether they are single vehicle accidents or collisions with other vehicles. In addition to school bus collisions, however, there are many school bus related incidents and injuries that can occur, including:
- Bullying and physical assault on buses
- Pedestrian accidents when disembarking school buses or getting on buses
- Doors closing on a child and harming them
- Slip and fall accidents on a bus
- Injuries caused by the bus having to make sudden, jerking stops
No matter how your child has been injured, if the injury occurred on a school bus or on school property, you may have legal options that allow you to seek compensation which can help your child recover more fully. Any time that your child is injured on a school bus, school property, or due to a school activity, it is a good idea to get legal advice so that you can make the best choices for your child and your family.Costs Your Family May Face After a School Bus Injury
The cost of the school bus accident can be catastrophic. After this type of accident has affected your child, you may need to find ways to pay for:
- At-home care
- Income replacement if you need to stay away from work in order to care for your child
- Emergency services
- Medical devices
- Physical therapy or rehabilitation
- Incidental costs, such as making your home accessible for your child's needs
- Property damage
