School Bus Accident Lawsuits

Families across the nation rely on school bus transportation for their children, and believe it is a safe form of travel. However, school bus accidents do occur and based on the reason for the accident, there are many entities who may be responsible for your child’s injuries. These include, of course the driver or the school district. But, the victim’s family needs to look further than that to the organization that owns the bus if the school is a private school.

Even in that scenario the contractor may sub-contract the maintenance of the bus and that sub-contractor could be responsible for the injuries as well.
