Liability In Buffalo School Bus Accidents

School buses are typically very safe for their passengers. But they pose a number of hazards to pedestrians and those in passenger vehicles.  According to the National Safety Council, “School bus-related crashes killed 54 people nationwide in 2020, down by over 50% compared to 2019 according to National Safety Council (NSC) tabulations of data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).” There are a number of factors that could contribute to a school bus accident.

  • Speeding
  • Inclement weather
  • Distracted driving
  • Driver fatigue

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. A large number of collisions are due to drivers that are speeding. If a driver fails to reduce their speed to avoid a collision, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Any person that is injured in a bus accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A bus accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
