Seeking compensation for a school bus accident

Children across the state of Washington are required to go to school. For many of these children, a school bus is the only way they ever get to and from their classrooms. Parents put a lot of trust in school bus companies and school bus drivers. Parents trust that these companies are doing their due diligence when it comes to maintaining the vehicle and hiring competent bus drivers. Parents are also trusting that bus drivers are paying attention to the roadways and driving safely.

Sadly, this trust is often misplaced. School bus accidents occur all the time, and they leave children with serious injuries. It is then up to the parents to try to take legal action to get compensation for these injuries. This compensation can help to cover expenses -- like medical expenses -- that were caused by the accident.

If the accident was caused by the negligence of another person, parents may be entitled to compensation. Negligence can include overloading the bus, failing to stop at railroad crossings, defective parts on the bus or other failures to maintain the bus properly. Other negligent behavior might include driving too fast for the weather conditions, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or allowing children to move around while the bus is in motion.

When this negligence occurs, it can be difficult for parents to understand how to move forward. This is where the attorneys at the Law Offices of Matthew D. Dubin can help. Our attorneys can take aggressive action to investigate school bus accidents to determine why they occurred. We can take necessary legal action to get parents and children the compensation they deserve.
