School buses – necessary transportation for so many, yet the accidents they cause 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 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 school buses in either Missouri, Illinois or Kansas.
School bus accidents can be caused by factors such as:
- Driver negligence
- Dangerous roadways
- Weather conditions
- Defective products
- Improper maintenance
These accidents may lead to death or serious physical injury, including:
- Head injuries
- Burn injuries
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Fractured bones
- Cuts and bruising
- Internal injuries
Sometimes the driver of the school bus is at fault for the accident. Sometimes the driver of another vehicle is responsible. Our experienced attorneys at Brown and Crouppen can gather and investigate the evidence to determine who is liable for your child’s injuries.
