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.
