Injured on a School Bus? We’re Passionate About Helping Accident Victims.
School Bus Accidents
Riding the school bus is still considered one of the safest methods for your student to get to school. Even with the safety protocols established by the school districts throughout New York State, accidents can still happen.
In addition to collisions that occur while riding the bus, your child could slip and fall or be struck when boarding, or getting off the bus. Examples of some injuries a child or teenager could sustain on a bus can include:
- Broken bones
- Concussions and other serious head injuries such as traumatic brain injuries
- Spine and neck injuries
While serious injuries from school buses are rare, they can still happen. It’s to watch your child suffer physical and emotional pain but when you add worry over medical bills or missed time at work the situation can be overwhelming. Don’t go through it alone, get in touch with the Law Offices of Sobo & Sobo and set up your free consultation. Our team of experienced lawyers are here to hear your child’s story.
When your child has been hurt in a school bus related accident it is natural to place the blame on the bus driver. However, that gut instinct is not always correct. Depending on the nature of the accident, there could be more than one individual responsible. After listening to your story, Sobo & Sobo will work to determine if:
- The school bus driver was driving negligently
- The school district did not give the adequate training
- There was not proper supervisors for the young children on the bus
- The bus was not properly maintained
- The bus was not fully inspected after maintenance or repairs
- There were faulty mechanics or parts
- The driver of another vehicle was driving recklessly
