Most parents in Washington State and other states across the nation rely on school buses to get their children to and from school. While this is an efficient and helpful way to transport students, it is also a form of transportation that could result in a serious accident site if an collision ensues. School buses are massive vehicles that are not equipped with seatbelts, While safety features exist in the vehicle, this does not always prevent or reduce severe injuries being suffered by student passengers.
The aftermath of a school bus accident is shocking. It is not only unexpected, but hearing news that a child or teenage student was injured in a crash is tragic. Thus, parents often seek justice following such a horrible event. At the Law Offices of Matthew D. Dubin, our experienced legal team is well equipped and prepared to help victims of a bus crash. We are dedicated to helping bus accident victims understand their rights and what steps they should take to protect them.

If the impact is great enough, this could throw the student passengers around the vehicle or even over the seat ahead of them. This could be the cause of severe injuries. Our skilled attorneys have the resources to not only further investigate the crash to determine cause and liability, but we have the ability to properly assess the damages suffered by out clients. It is our goal to ensure our clients obtain the compensation they are owed.
