Causes of School Bus Accidents

No matter what safety precautions are implemented, injuries continue to occur when school buses collide with cars or other vehicles.  School bus accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Driver negligence
  • Dangerous roads
  • Hazardous weather conditions
  • Defective vehicles
  • Improper vehicle maintenance

School Bus Accident Injuries

A variety of severe injuries can occur as a result of school bus accidents.  They may require extensive rehabilitation, hospitalization or surgery.  Some of the more common injuries include:

  • Head injury
  • Burns
  • Brain injury
  • Spine injury
  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Amputations
  • Internal injuries

Legal action never repairs the damage done to a victim, but compensation can pay for medical treatment.  Our experienced attorneys will thoroughly investigate all factors contributing to each school bus accident to better understand who is liable.  You may be able to file a claim against the bus company.  If you were a passenger on the bus, the company must exhibit the “highest degree of care,” which means passengers must be given a greater level of care than the standard of negligence held in most motor vehicle accidents.
