Why Do School Bus Collisions Happen?

There may be many reasons why a school bus crash occurs:

  • Poor school bus maintenance
  • Defective bus parts
  • Mechanical failure
  • Driver error
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding
Is Someone Liable In My School Bus Accident?

There may be liable parties in your child's school bus collision if:

  • The bus was not driven with adequate care
  • Safety measures, such as flashing red lights, were not used when children were leaving or entering the school bus
  • The driver did not check to see whether traffic has stopped before allowing children to leave the school bus
  • The driver did not adequately monitor the children's presence on the bus or their safe crossing of a street when they left the vehicle
  • The driver drove recklessly or disobeyed traffic signals and rules
  • Mechanical failure or poor bus maintenance caused the accident

There may be multiple reasons and multiple indications that someone is liable in your child’s school bus accident. In many cases, it will take an investigation and thorough analysis to find out whether negligence played a role in your child's injuries. If your child has been injured, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in Pompano Beach or your community to find out what your legal options are.

What Are Your Legal Options After A School Bus Crash?

If your child has been injured in a school bus accident, you have several options:

  • You can seek compensation through a settlement or through insurance money provided by the school board or school and their insurance companies
  • You can file a legal claim against the school board, bus driver, and other liable parties
  • You can seek insurance from the at-fault driver who struck your child or the school bus
  • You can negotiate with insurance carriers or the school board for a fair settlement

Exploring all your options begins with contacting a personal injury lawyer. A personal injury attorney can help you understand what options you have and can handle the details.
