School bus accidents can be a parent’s nightmare
A parent’s greatest fear is hearing that their child has been injured. When a parent sends his/her daughter to school, he/she expects that their child will be taken care of and protected. Although cautious and careful driving is expected from school bus drivers, the reality is that thousands of school bus accidents occur each year. The negligence of a school bus driver, other motorists, faulty bus equipment, and impaired driving are just some of the probable causes of accidents. School bus accidents are extremely dangerous because children often ride the bus without wearing a seat belt. This puts them at greater risk for serious injury. If your child has been injured in a school bus accident, you may file a claim on his/her behalf and may be entitled to compensation. The personal injury lawyers at The Horwitz Law Group can help.
