California School Bus Accident Attorney | Injuries to School Children

I trust your children are the most important things in your life, and when it comes to their safety that is your number one priority. When you entrust them to a school bus driver, you expect that person to get them back to you safely to and from school. Sometimes, however, something can go wrong since school buses are not equipped with items you would normally find in a car; like seat belts. If your California school child has been injured in a school bus accident, a personal injury attorney like Mark C. Blane can help you recover compensation from the responsible party which is usually the school district or the at-fault driver that caused the school bus accident (but other parties may be at fault too).

Some Causes of California School Bus Accidents

California school bus related injuries can often be caused by:

1. poor driving,
2. unsafe district policies,
3. other drivers or vehicles,
4. drug use or distracted driving,
5. defective property or devices on the school bus,
6. improperly functioning lights or automated side school bus signs,
7. wear and tear damage to the school bus,
8. or poor school bus maintenance.

If these items can be demonstrated via adequate proof in court, you may be entitled to financial compensation. If your child has been in a school bus-related accident of any kind, you may be able to claim compensation and recovery for your child - the California courts supervise any settlement to a minor child (under the age of 18).  Don't wait.

California School Bus Injuries Caused by Poor Driving

Unsafe driving can be dangerous or deadly in any vehicle, but often more so in a school bus. The reasons for this vary, but the fact remains that school buses are extremely large and, more importantly, are filled with children that have been entrusted to the care of the school bus driver. Moreover, there are no seat belts equipped on school buses. Therefore, it is important that the school bus driver be knowledgable on how to effectively navigate the bus through all types of different traffic. Often poor decisions about driving in unsafe weather conditions may lead to an injury or school bus accident. Violations of legal speed limits, overly aggressive driving or failing to yield when required are all examples of mistakes that could be made by a poor driver in charge of your child's safety to and from school - and these are all errors that could lead to injury. These are the kinds of misjudgments a professional school bus driver should know better than to make.
