Causes of School Bus Accidents
Although Florida is one of the five states that have implemented safety belt requirements for school buses, injuries continue to occur when school buses collide with other cars or when children become injured during the process of getting on and off the bus. School bus accidents can be caused by multiple factors, including:
- Driver negligence
- Dangerous roadways
- Weather conditions
- Defective products
- Improper maintenance
South Florida School Bus Accident Injuries
Injuries that occur as a result of a school bus accident are often severe and may require extensive therapy and treatment. Some of the more common injuries associated with school bus accidents include:
- Fractured bones
- Cuts and bruising
- Internal injuries
Legal action following a school bus accident will not undo the damage suffered by the victim, but compensation can often pay for better medical treatment and rehabilitative care. The Hollywood, personal injury attorneys at Rosen & Ohr, P.A. will perform a thorough investigation of the factors contributing to the school bus accident to better understand who should be held liable. You may be able to file a claim against the bus company to recover for your damages. If you were a passenger on a bus that was involved in an accident, the bus company, whether public or private, must exercise the “highest degree of care, foresight, prudence and diligence reasonably demanded at any given time by conditions or circumstances…” This “highest degree of care” means passengers are owed a much greater level of care then merely the negligence standard typically owed in motor vehicle accidents.
