A school bus accident is a tragic event in that the lives and safety of so many children are endangered or injured. This may affect the children on the bus or in the area surrounding the school. All types of injuries can result, including burns, broken bones, back and neck injuries , and severe wounds to name a few. If your child has been injured in such an accident, a Suffolk County injury attorney should be contacted as soon as possible.

School bus accidents can occur for many reasons, some of which include:

  • A poorly trained or inexperienced driver
  • Insufficient or defective repair or maintenance of the school bus
  • Malfunctioning or insufficient safety warning signals
  • Overloaded buses
  • A driver who is fatigued or driving under the influence
  • Speeding, disobeying road signs, or other negligent or dangerous driving behavior
