Pembroke Pines School Bus Accident

If your child has been injured in a school bus accident in Pembroke Pines or any Florida community, it is important to seek legal advice immediately. There is a statute of limitations which requires you to file a legal claim in these cases very quickly. In addition, you may be offered a settlement or may be asked to sign documentation by liable parties and their attorneys or insurance companies. Signing this documentation may in some cases limit your ability to seek compensation later on if you find out that your child's injuries were more serious than you initially thought.
