Common Causes of School Bus Accidents
School bus accidents can be caused by a number of factors, such as:
- Lack of seat belts
- Bus overcrowding
- Driver inattention
- Driver intoxication
- Driver fatigue
- Defective warning lights
It is noted that as early as 1968 the National Safety and Transportation urged that seat belts be installed in national bus line buses. Over 40 years later, few buses, including school buses, provide seat belts. These and other safety issues all lead to dangerous and situations for all children aboard the bus - and leave them vulnerable to catastrophic injuries in the event of an accident.
Your Tampa Bus Accident Attorneys
When hired to represent a bus accident victim, we make a painstaking investigation of the accident. We also consult our client's doctor for what care is needed to help our client fully recover. We then contact the insurance company and make a conscientious effort to achieve a fair settlement. Should the company refuse to do what is right, however, we are prepared to fight for our client's maximum compensation in court.
We have won millions of dollars in damages for our personal injury clients. While we cannot promise you results, you can trust in our promise to do everything possible to help you defend your best interests. If your child has been involved in an accident involving a school bus, we urge you to contact our firm for comprehensive legal assistance.
The process of filing a claim or lawsuit can be complex, and insurance companies often deny certain types of valid claims or offer a low settlement in the hopes that you will accept it. Fortunately, our firm never relents until you receive a fair settlement or verdict. How do you know what amount is fair?
That is where our team of lawyers can help. There are many types of damages that are possible in any injury case, and evaluating your case before moving forward is a key factor in the amount of the settlement you will receive. We are well versed in all aspects of personal injury law and know how to present your case in a way that brings about the optimum results.
