Who is Responsible for a School Bus Accident?

While school buses provide the safest transportation to and from school, serious and even fatal injuries can result from:

  • A crash with another vehicle
  • A single-vehicle crash, if the bus  slides off the road or collides with another object
  • A slip and fall while getting on or off the bus
  • A pedestrian accident while attempting to cross the street

Depending on the accident itself and what the underlying cause was, there can be multiple parties responsible for your child’s injury:

  • The school bus driver may not have been driving responsibly
  • The school district may not have given the driver proper training
  • A third party contracted to repair and maintain the bus but failed to do so
  • The school bus or parts manufacturer who created a faulty product
  • The driver of another vehicle may be at fault for the accident
  • A private school, church, or organization which owns and operates the bus
  • A government entity who responsible for the poor roadway design, construction, and/or maintenance

If your child has been harmed by the negligence of another individual or entity, you deserve justice.

How a School Bus Accident Lawyer at Munley Law Can Help

School bus accidents usually present an entirely different set of challenges than a typical auto accident. Because a school bus crash may involve multiple parties – the school district, the bus driver, another motorist, an independent transportation company – you will need an experienced legal representative to determine who bears responsibility. As the victim of an accident caused by negligence, you may recover compensation for your child’s:

  • Medical expenses
  • Special equipment and home modifications to accommodate disability
  • Inability to participate in sports or other activities
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Pain and suffering

As parents ourselves, we understand the seriousness of a school bus accident, and the importance of holding the at-fault party responsible. If your child or your loved one has been injured in a school bus accident, don’t delay. Contact a Pennsylvania school bus accident lawyer at Munley Law today for a free consultation.

I got into a serious accident with a tractor trailer two years ago, one that took me out of commission for months. The trucking company was fighting my case, saying I was the one who caused the accident. Luckily, I had Dan Munley at my side. He got me the money to help pay the medical bills and much more. He really pulled through for me and my family and I am eternally grateful to him. Trucking Accident Client
