School Bus Accident Injury Lawyer
When you put your child on the school bus, you are trusting the driver and the school district to take every precaution to care for your child’s safety. School bus accidents are one of a parent’s worst nightmares. They are uncommon, but unfortunately, they do occur. If your child was injured in a school bus accident, or you were injured when hit by a school bus, you need legal representation. Keith D. Leshine Attorney at Law, LLC is a school bus accident injury lawyer for our clients in the greater Atlanta, GA, area.
The good news about school bus injury accidents is that they rarely involve serious injuries to children. While there are instances of children sustaining injuries or fatalities in school bus wrecks, they are few and far between. However, any loss of life or injury to a child while riding on a school bus is tragic. According to data from the NHTSA and National Safety Council (NSC), in 2018, 4000 school bus passengers were injured and 9 were killed in accidents, but many more people were injured in these accidents than the children on these buses.
Were You Injured in School Bus Crash?
If a school bus crash occurs, the people outside the bus are more likely to be injured than those on the bus. Out of 117 school bus accident fatalities in 2018, the majority of those killed were not riding or driving the bus. In fact, 105 of these deaths were occupants of other vehicles, pedestrians or cyclists. Another estimated 9,000 people outside of the bus occupants were injured in these accidents.
When a school bus injury accident occurs, it is vital that victims have an experienced personal injury lawyer on their side. These are complicated cases that can involve many different legal aspects and possible liable parties.
