6 Year Old Fatally Struck by a School Bus in NYC

school bus accidentOn Wednesday, February 24th, a 6 year old was fatally struck by a school bus in New York City near the intersection of South Fifth Street and Hooper Street in Williamsburg. The little boy, Shimon Fried, was on his way to school with his older brother and about to get on the school bus when the nightmare happened.

A video from inside the bus shows both boys crossing in front of the bus with the older brother in the front followed by the younger brother. Once the older brother gets on the bus, the driver closes the door and starts taking off, running over younger Shimon and continuing on its way. The video further shows the bus lifting up as it runs over the young child. The bus driver never stopped and simply continued to drive after fatally running over Shimon.

Shimon’s body was later found by an MTA bus driver, who at first thought it was a doll lying on the road. Upon stopping and getting out, she discovered it was a young boy and called 911.

If you or a loved one is injured in an accident, you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation. An experienced New York City accident attorney can help you seek justice and the full compensation that you are entitled to for your injuries.

Filing Wrongful Death Claims to Get Justice

The untimely and tragic loss of a loved one, especially a young child, can never be fully compensated with any amount of money. However, filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent parties can bring the victim’s family members a sense of justice and closure.

In New York, personal representatives of an estate of a loved one can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the liable party. Damages can be awarded to immediate family members, including:

  • A child of the decedent
  • A parent of the decedent
  • A spouse of the decedent
  • The personal representative for the estate of the decedent

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!!
