Bus Accident Lawyers in Austin
School bus transportation is one of the most common forms of mass transit in the United States. Millions of school children ride school buses in this country's small towns, rural countryside and large cities every year. For many children, riding the school bus is both a convenient form of transportation and part of the school experience. Parents trust the drivers to take every precaution with their children, and they trust the school district to hire and train reliable and safe drivers. But when an accident occurs, the results can be tragic.

More Information About School Bus Accidents
Most school bus accidents happen in one of two ways. An accident can happen while the child is on the bus or when the child is entering or exiting the bus and gets hit as a pedestrian. Either way, significant injuries or even fatalities can occur. That is especially true when another motorist fails to stop, striking a child as he or she crosses the road.
Litigation involving school bus accidents can be quite complex because there may be several victims as well as several parties liable for the harm. Special issues can arise when municipalities or school districts are involved. Bus drivers are required to use the highest degree of care to ensure the safety of their passengers. When drivers fall short in their duty of care, either because they are not properly trained or are careless in their driving, your child may be the victim. Your child may also be injured when another motorist fails to obey safety laws when a school bus is stopped.
We understand that no amount of money will undo the harm that has been done to your child. However, we also know that the injuries caused by school bus accidents can be expensive, and that the injuries sustained by your child may be permanent. Our Personal Injury attorneys work closely with each and every client to help achieve a full recovery for the injuries they have suffered.
