Newport School Bus Accident Attorneys
If your child has been injured or killed in a school bus accident, you may be entitled to compensation. When you put your child on their school bus, it is with the expectation and belief that they will be safely delivered to and from school. Unfortunately, accidents happen even on buses, and those accidents sometimes lead to tragedy. Injuries on school buses can include broken bones, burns, lacerations, and head injuries. These may occur when a child is entering or exiting a bus as well as in a crash on the road with another vehicle. No matter what may have caused it, school bus accidents are terrible, causing long-term emotional trauma in addition to physical for both children and parents. As a parent, you want what’s best for your child, which sometimes means taking legal action when other avenues fail you. At the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, we’re ready to assist you with your school bus accident personal injury claim. Contact us today at (401) 367-4655 for a free consultation of your case.
Why You Need an Attorney
Dealing with the aftermath of a traumatic school bus accident in which your child was hurt is both emotionally draining and expensive. Medical bills, in addition to taking time off work to care for your child’s well-being, can cause huge problems in household finances, which in turn cause stress to pile up. If you’re thinking about filing a lawsuit, you shouldn’t go into it alone. It is very difficult to win your case while representing yourself, especially in such a specific field as school bus accidents. It’s vital that you have a knowledgeable and experienced attorney by your side when attempting to win compensation in a personal injury claim. A good attorney who has been through a similar case before will know better than anyone how to handle each problem that arises, and how best to present your case. They can collect and organize evidence, keep track of the details of your case, talk with witnesses, negotiate on your behalf, and argue for you in court. These are all skills that shouldn’t be underestimated, especially when your finances and peace of mind are on the line. There are so many different ways for a school bus accident to result in injury, and because these accidents involve both children and the school system, there are a lot of hurdles that may come up along the way. It’s always best to put your trust in an attorney you feel confident in to win your case, rather than moving forward without guidance.

Cases We Handle
Surprisingly, most children who are injured on school buses are injured when they’re trying to get on or leave the bus. This is often due to roughhousing or other kinds of unsafe bus behavior, although of course driver error and other conditions cause accidents on the roads as well. Unexpected types of school bus accidents that we are prepared to handle are:
- Bus stop accidents – A child is hit by the school bus while waiting for the bus, exiting it, or running to catch it, or a child is hit by a different vehicle while waiting at the bus stop
- Slip-and-fall accidents – A child is injured because of unsafe conditions inside the bus, such as wet floors
- Problems with safety procedures/feature – A child is injured or killed because they are trapped in the bus during an emergency, or the safety features on the bus, such as emergency exits, do not function properly.
Distracted driving, especially on a bus filled with children, is also a factor in school bus accidents, as well as basic car accident circumstances, such as bad weather conditions. Depending on the accident, you may find that the negligent party was a stranger who collided with the bus, or even a manufacturing company that produced a faulty part that resulted in your child being hurt. Regardless, The Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini can handle your school bus accident case, and are prepared to fight for you so that you can receive the compensation you deserve.
