The School Bus Injury Attorneys at the Philadelphia law firm of The Levin Firm, understand that representing school bus accident victims requires particular types of skills and knowledge, as well as ability to understand your rights. Our PA and NJ accident lawyers fight to recover the many types of damages and compensation our clients are entitled to, including medical expenses, hospital bills, rehabilitations expenses, lost earnings, future wage losses, lost earning capacity, physical disabilities, scars, loss of a limb, brain and head injuries, emotional distress, depression, anxiety, grief, and pain and suffering. Our school bus injury attorneys understand these issues, and work with our clients, their friends and family, as well as their doctors, psychologists, long-term care planners, and others – to ensure that our clients receive not only the finest legal representation, but also the finest support and medical care.
Every year in the United States, school buses provide almost 9 million student trips, carrying 24 million students to and from school, field trips, and extracurricular activities. We put our children’s lives in the hands of school bus drivers, and expect them to handle this precious cargo safely and with a high degree of care. Nonetheless, school buses are not immune from being involved in traffic accidents, sometimes at the fault of the bus driver and sometimes at the fault of another vehicle’s driver.
When school bus accidents occur, injuries to their passengers are likely. Students, especially young children, are more likely to be injured than adults due to their small size. Most school buses are not equipped with seat belts, which also leads to more injuries. Further, school buses which are overcrowded, requiring students to sit three to a seat, sit in the aisle or stand, lend themselves to more serious injuries if an accident were to occur.
Because of their large size and heavy weight, school bus accidents are also very likely to be fatal or cause serious injuries to nonoccupants, such as pedestrians or occupants of other vehicles. In fact, of all those killed in school bus related accidents since 1990, only 9% were passengers in the school bus.
Representing school bus accident victims requires a team of aggressive investigators and lawyers all devoting their maximum effort to their clients. At The Levin Firm, our Pennsylvania and New Jersey personal injury attorneys investigate every claim so that we may aggressively and zealously represent our clients and obtain the best possible results.
