A Fort Worth personal injury lawyer, like those at the Anderson Law Firm, can help you if your child has been injured in a school bus accident. Childhood injuries are common on school buses. In fact, 12,000 students are injured each year in school bus accidents. These accidents typically involve another vehicle, or when children are loading on and off the bus.
When there is an accident involving a school bus, one of the most important things to do is to determine fault. In cases involving school bus accidents and another vehicle, fault could lie with the other driver, with the school bus driver or with both the bus driver and the operator of the other vehicle. If the accident investigation determines that the wreck was caused because of a defective design, the manufacturer of the bus could be liable. School districts may become a liable party in school bus accident claims when the school district had knowledge of a faulty bus or if the school was aware of a bus driver's negligent driving record and still allowed them to drive.
If your family has been affected by a school bus wreck, you should contact a DFW personal injury lawyer immediately. Evidence is gathered by the insurance companies defending the person at fault very quickly and you need someone in your corner that will be ready for a fight.
Litigation involving school bus accidents is complex because there could be several victims as well as multiple parties liable for the damage. Whenever municipalities or school districts are involved, special issues are bound to pop up.
The lawyers at the Anderson Law Firm know that no amount of money can undo the damage that has been done to your child after a school bus accident. We know the injuries from these accidents are expensive and could be permanent and because of that our attorneys will work tirelessly to achieve a full recovery for the injuries your child has suffered.
