School Bus Accident Attorneys in WarwickIf your child has been injured or killed in a school bus accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. School buses are, the vast majority of the time, very safe means of travel. However, accidents do happen, and you have the option to pursue legal action when your child has been hurt. School bus accidents can cause injuries such as broken bones, burns, head injuries, and cuts and bruises.

Many school bus accidents happen when the bus isn’t moving. Most commonly, accidents happen when students are getting on the bus, exiting the bus, or exhibiting unsafe passenger behavior. At the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd., we are ready to represent your school bus accident personal injury claim, and we’re confident in our ability to get you the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other costs related to your child’s accident.

    Why You Need a Lawyer

    An accident like this is especially traumatic in that it involves the health and safety of children. Overseeing the recovery of an injured child is not something any parent wants to go through and to top it all off, there is the dilemma of needing financial compensation and yet not having the time or energy to handle a personal injury lawsuit alone. Fortunately, the help of a good lawyer makes the entire process much more manageable than you might think. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you collect evidence to support your case, gather witnesses, file the appropriate paperwork, meet deadlines, and form an argument for trial. Because many school bus accidents happen on public school buses, your case might also involve suing a government entity. As you can imagine, this makes a case more complicated than an average personal injury case, and cases like these can require more specific knowledge of the law.

    Additionally, if your child was injured in a school bus accident that involved another vehicle, which is pretty common for this type of accident, you might have a case against that individual. Essentially, school bus accidents tend to be very complicated, and it’s unwise to try to file a personal injury claim without the advice of a lawyer first. In the long run, having a lawyer beside you during your case will ensure a better result for you and your family both financially and emotionally.

    Cases We Handle

    School bus accidents can take on many forms. Most often, children are hurt when they’re trying to get on or off the school bus. Other times, accidents occur inside the school bus, but not necessarily because of driver error. Some examples of school bus accidents that don’t involve a crash are when:

    • A child is hit by a school bus while playing at the bus stop
    • A child is hit by a different vehicle while trying to enter or exit the school bus
    • A child slips and falls inside the school bus
    • A child is trapped inside a school bus during an emergency

    Of course, children can also be hurt on a school bus the same way they might be hurt in a different kind of vehicle. This encompasses driver error, bad weather conditions, and even manufacturer defects with the school bus. Unfortunately, distracted driving is also a major risk in a bus filled with children. No matter what the case, you expect your child to be safe when you send them off to school.

    Accidents are expensive, and your family deserves not only justice from the negligent party, but also compensation for the costs of medical bills, time off work, and pain and suffering. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd. are capable of handling any of these kinds of school bus accident cases, and we are ready to hear from you.
