Buses provide essential transportation for thousands of people every day, especially school children, yet the accidents they cause can have catastrophic results for their passengers. School bus accidents result in emergency room visits by 17,000 children each year in the United States. On average, 19 children die each year as a result of school bus-related accidents.
While school buses and transit buses travel at low speeds, their large size poses a threat to other cars that share the road – and to their precious passengers. Seat belts are not required in buses in Missouri, Illinois, or Kansas. When accidents occur, medical bills, property damage, and even legal fees can add up quickly.
When it comes to getting the compensation you or your loved ones deserve, you might not know where to start — and the insurance company won’t help. That’s why we offer a free case evaluation: We’ll tell you honestly whether your personal injury claim is worth pursuing, and if so, what steps we will take to win.
