School Bus Crash Injuries and Bus Stop Accidents
Even at relatively low speed, children on a school bus are vulnerable to serious injury. With no seat belts, they may strike the seat back in front, hit their head on the window or bus frame, or be thrown into the aisle. Children are highly susceptible to concussion and other head trauma. Many suffer neck injuries, facial and dental injuries, fractured arms and broken collarbones. In a high-speed crash, the potential is high for permanent injury or death.
We have the resources to prove liability and maximize damages for any scenario:
- School bus collisions caused by another vehicle
- Bus crashes caused by bus driver negligence
- Children run over or backed over after exiting the bus
- Children run over at a bus stop or pickup zone
- Bus rider injuries caused by sudden hard stops, acceleration or turns
Hal Waldman and Associates handles all the details of insurance claims and lawsuits against the school district, bus company or another motorist. We seek coverage for your child’s medical bills, future surgery or care needs, disability, scarring, pain and suffering, and any psychological counseling.
