Liability For Long Island Car Accidents

School buses are considered “common carriers” under the law and their drivers are held to a high standard in terms of safety. They must do everything that human care and vigilance can do to avoid collisions. School buses can weigh ten to twenty times more than a passenger vehicle. There are a number of factors that could contribute to a school bus collision.

  • Distracted driving
  • Poor road conditions
  • Driver intoxication
  • Speeding

The vast majority of car accidents are preventable and involve some amount of driver error. Bus accidents can be complex events. The factors that contribute to any bus accident may take place long before the actual collision. Any person that is injured in a school bus accident may have legal recourse through a civil claim. A bus accident attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
