How To Protect Your Child’s Legal Rights After a School Bus Accident

Your child’s safety is your number one priority, no matter where they are and what they are doing. When you kiss your child goodbye and entrust them in the hands of a school bus driver, you expect them to safely return home at the end of the day. However, accidents happen.Elementary school students getting on school bus

School bus related accidents and injuries are more common than most expect. Since 2003, more than 1,300 people were killed in school transportation related accidents. The majority of these victims were school-aged children riding on school buses either to or from school or on school related activities. There are many causes of school bus related injuries and fatalities. If your child was involved in a school bus accident, you need to take every step to protect his or her legal rights.

What To Do After a School Bus Accident

The immediate steps you take after your child gets injured in a school bus related accident could be important to your child’s health and legal rights. Below are 4 important steps you should take after a school bus accident:

  • Take your child to the doctor. If your child was seriously injured, first responders will take him or her to the emergency room. However, even if you do not suspect that your child was seriously injured, you should still take him or her to the doctor for a check-up.
  • Take pictures of the scene of an accident. If you make it to the scene of the accident, it is important that you take pictures, including pictures of property damage.
  • Get important contact information. You should get the contact information for the bus driver, including the name of the bus company, the bus number and license place.
  • Consult with an attorney. In order to ensure that your child obtains the full extent of the compensation that he or she deserves, you need to hire an attorney who specifically handles these types of cases.

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!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
