North Miami School Bus Accident

School bus accidents are far less common than car accidents in North Miami and Florida. In fact, most safety experts agree that school buses are a much safer way to get your child school than cars.

School Bus Collisions in North Miami and Florida Don’t Just Involve Traffic Crashes

School bus accidents can include not only traffic collisions but also range of injuries which occur on a school bus. These can include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Accidents caused when disembarking or entering the bus
  • Bullying on board a school bus
  • Facial injuries, fractures, and other injuries caused by sharp braking

No matter what has caused your child’s injuries, if your child emerges from a school bus or ends their day at school with severe injuries, it is important to get answers. If your child's injuries were preventable and are caused by recklessness or negligence, you may have a right under Florida law to seek compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, counseling, and other services that your family will need in order to get back on track.

Where Can I Secure Compensation After A School Bus Accident?

If your child has been injured in a school bus accident, you may be able to seek compensation through a legal claim against all liable parties. Liable parties will depend on the area where the accident occurred and on the specific local rules that apply to drivers and school buses in the area.

In some cases, children are covered by insurance or by their parents’ Personal Injury Insurance (PIP). It is possible that some medical costs will be covered by this type of insurance benefit, although it is often a good idea to speak with a personal injury attorney to ensure that your insurance claim is not undervalued. Whether you decide to pursue insurance claims or a legal claim, a personal injury attorney can help you figure out which option may be best for you and your family.
