School Bus Accident Lawyer

School buses are necessary transportation for so many, yet the accidents they cause result in emergency room visits by 17,000 children each year in the United States. Between 2008 and 2017, there have been 1,241 people killed in school-transportation-related crashes – an average of 124 fatalities per year. 21% of these fatalities were of school-age children (18 and younger). While school buses travel at low speeds, their large size poses a threat to other cars that share the road … and to their precious passengers. Seat belts are not required in school buses in either Missouri or Kansas.

Sometimes the driver of the school bus is at fault for an accident. Sometimes the driver of another vehicle is responsible. I will gather and investigate the evidence to determine who is liable for your child’s injuries.

School bus accidents can be caused by factors such as:

  • Driver negligence
  • Dangerous roadways
  • Weather conditions
  • Defective products
  • Improper maintenance

These accidents may lead to death or serious physical injury:

  • Head injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Fractured bones
  • Cuts and bruising
  • Amputations
  • Internal injuries
