How Many Children are Injured as a Result of School Bus Accidents Each Year?

More than 23.5 million elementary and secondary school children ride school buses daily throughout the United States. Many of these school buses do not have restraint systems or seat belts. Over 12,000 of these children are injured each year in school bus accidents. Some of these injuries are catastrophic, and as many as 11 children a year die as a result of school bus accidents.

Why are There so Many Bus Accidents?

Bus accidents and school bus accidents often result in serious injuries or death. Bus accidents can be caused by such contributing factors as driver negligence, dangerous roadways, weather conditions, defective products and improper maintenance, among others. Our bus accident attorneys at Slappy & Sadd will pursue every factor that may have contributed to severe injury or accidental death in your case.

We do not feel it could get any better. We were never treated as a bother (and we were!) The best at a very difficult time. Kathleen and the girls caught the brunt of it from most everyone. If it were not for you all I’d probably break either mentally or physically. Again, thanks so much. You are the best ever! Bob & Barbara K. – Tucker, Georgia

What Should I do if I am in a Bus Accident?

If you have been injured as the result of a bus accident either as a passenger, pedestrian or driver, you may be able to file a claim against the bus company. If you were a passenger on a bus that was involved in an accident, the bus company, whether public or private, owes you a “duty of extraordinary care” associated with being a common carrier. This “duty of extraordinary care” is higher than the negligence duty owed by the bus company to drivers of other vehicles and pedestrians. The accident injury attorneys at Slappey & Sadd have the experience and qualifications to help determine whether that duty was met in your particular circumstances.

If you have been seriously injured or a loved one has died in an accident involving a bus or school bus, you need the advice of an experienced bus accident lawyer. Be aware that claims for damages against a public or governmental entity are complex and have strict time limitations. The laws are intricate and vary greatly depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident.
