Parents who entrust their children’s safety to school bus transportation providers have every right to expect proper care from drivers and other responsible parties. School bus accidents will inevitably trigger investigations by government agencies and lawyers. If your child was injured in a school bus accident, you should have your own attorney to keep you informed of your rights. In order to file an effective injury claim or lawsuit, you need a lawyer who is well-informed about deadlines, procedures and insurance issues.

- Struck by a school bus while waiting at a bus stop
- Struck or run over by a school bus
- Injured while boarding or exiting a school bus
- Injured due to bullying on the bus

- Injured as a pedestrian or bicyclist by a school bus
