School bus drivers and busing companies have a tremendous responsibility to drive safely and keep children, and other drivers on the road, free from harm. Buses need to be properly maintained, bus drivers need to be qualified and trained, and those same drivers need to drive as responsibly as possible. When one or more of these things does not happen, it can result in accidents with serious consequences, including catastrophic injuries.
An injury to a child should always be taken seriously, and those responsible should be held accountable. At the law firm of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkhoff & Wolff LLP, our NYC injury lawyers help people across New York City and beyond in personal injury claims, including those stemming from school bus accidents. We know how important it is for families to recover compensation for medical bills and related expenses. Our firm has achieved a positive outcome for clients in commercial vehicle accident cases, including bus accidents.
Our experienced NYC school bus accident lawyers are equipped to handle all kinds of school bus accidents throughout the New York area, including collisions with other vehicles, collisions with passengers, slip-and-fall accidents due to wet bus floors, defective or broken bus stairs, sudden stops or starts of the bus, and fights on the bus or at bus stops.
Not only do bus drivers need to be properly trained and experienced in bus driving, but they also need to provide adequate supervision for those who are on the bus. Children on buses are often subjected to bullying and other types of behaviors that can lead to injuries. Drivers need to be aware and need to know how to respond to these types of situations.
If your child has suffered an injury due to negligence from a school bus driver, we will work to fight for justice for you and your family.
