Who Is to Blame for My Child’s School Bus Crash?

In all likelihood, you were not present when the school bus carrying your son or daughter was involved in a wreck. Finding answers and assigning accountability may seem impossible without the help of a reliable legal team. At Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C., we have the years of experience, ample resources, and extensive knowledge necessary to investigate and build a strong auto accident case for you.

Through an analysis of the facts of your case, we can identify the major contributing factors of the school bus accident, which may involve the bus driver, other motorists, the vehicle manufacturer, or even those responsible for road maintenance. Common causes may be traced to the following:

  • Distracted, intoxicated, or fatigued driving
  • Improper training of bus drivers
  • Overloading the bus
  • Poor upkeep of the vehicle
  • Reckless or aggressive driving
  • Faulty road signs or traffic lights

If your child was injured or worse as a result of another’s carelessness or willful wrongdoing, the last thing you should have to worry about is building your own case. Please do not hesitate to contact our firm. We are more than happy to answer your questions.
