School Bus Accident Lawyer

They’re 30,000 pound yellow monsters that roar down the roads of your town every morning and afternoon. With their enormous size, bright visibility and red and yellow lights flashing, you would think that a school bus would be one of the safest places on the road. But that’s not always the case. Accidents happen and when they do, you need a school bus accident lawyer to help you sort out your legal options.

 Every parent with a child who rides a school bus has thought about the potential dangers. School busses are driven thousands of miles in a year, and in the back of our heads we all know that each mile driven means risk. Most school buses don’t have seat belts or other common safety devices, which is troubling to many. And school buses are driven by a motley collection of retirees, single parents and unknown strangers who surely don’t take your child’s safety as seriously as you do.

On top of that, school buses are driven throughout the winter months in the worst possible weather for their location. Sometimes that means snow, ice and cold. Other times it only means rain, fog and poor visibility. But whatever the winter weather conditions where you live, there will be times this winter where school buses are out facing it, fighting to get your children safely home.

For all that, school buses are surprisingly safe. The lack of personal safety devices is largely offset by the size of the vehicle and the relatively low speeds at which they normally travel. School transportation officials have the opportunity to plan routes to offer the most safety possible, and drivers on a route get used to it and come to now every curve in the road like the back of their hands.

But when an accident does happen, it can be the cause of severe injuries. A school bus, with its high center of gravity is prone to tipping in a one-vehicle crash where it goes off the road. And with its passengers usually unruly children, any collision that involves a school bus may include kids that weren’t fully seated at the time of impact and can be thrown down the aisles. Compound this with the fact that the victims of any accident may be children as small as five year old kindergarten students, and you;ll see why this is every parent’s worst nightmare.

Has your child been involved in a school bus crash? If so, you’ll want to secure the counsel of a professional school bus accident lawyer. This legal professional is someone who specializes in injury cases that arise when a school bus is involved in a collision.

The school bus accident lawyer is accustomed to dealing with the bureaucracy of school districts and their legal representation, so they can determine the truth from the facts when dealing with the district’s insurance companies and legal teams. This professional is an advocate for your rights, who will fight to make sure you get the compensation you need to help your child recover from their injuries.  

If you or a loved one is in need of a professional school bus accident lawyer, Long Island Law is there for you.
