Holding School Districts and Bus Drivers Accountable
School districts are supposed to hire drivers with very few or no traffic violations on their records. Similarly, bus drivers must drive cautiously and carefully to keep children safe. These responsibilities, however, are not always met and kids get hurt. That is where a skilled Seattle school bus accident lawyer like Matthew Dubin comes in.
At our firm, our attorneys handle personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits involving:
- Negligent hiring of school bus drivers
- Failure to maintain buses properly
- Driving too fast for weather conditions
- Allowing kids to leave their seats while the bus is moving
- Failing to stop at railroads crossings
- Failing to warn other drivers that children are in the area by putting out the stop sign
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Defective brakes and other parts
We are dedicated to building strong cases and recovering compensation for injured kids. Our Seattle child injury attorneys will thoroughly review the circumstances of the accident and work with accident reconstruction experts to determine what happened. We gather witness statements, medical reports and other evidence to present to insurance companies and juries, maximizing the compensation you child receives.
