Liability For Town of Fowler School Bus Accidents

School buses are usually very safe, but they can be very dangerous for 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).” Victims of school bus collisions tend to suffer very serious injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care to avoid collisions. Many school bus accidents are due to bus drivers that make unsafe lane changes. Any person that is injured in a school 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.
