School Bus Accidents

Minnesota School Bus Accident Lawyer

When you put your child on the school bus at the beginning of the day or your child gets on a bus at school, you expect that he or she is going to arrive home unharmed. Unfortunately, there are times when this is not the case. Just as a car or truck can get into an automobile accident, school busses can as well.

If your child has been injured in a school bus accident, it is your right to seek the legal help of a qualified Minneapolis personal injury lawyer who has extensive experience with personal injury law. You may be able to seek compensation for wages you have lost due to dealing with your child’s injury, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and much more. We can help you hold the responsible party accountable for your child’s injuries.

Seeking Justice For You

When an accident is not the fault of your child or you, you should not have to pay the financial consequences that result. This is why it is your right to file a personal injury claim. In many cases, claims are settled before they ever go to court. If they are not settled, then we will take your case to trial and fight for the maximum amount of money to be awarded by a jury.

It is also important to realize that you are not alone in your case. Here are some statistics regarding school bus accidents:

  • There are nearly 700 school bus accidents every year
  • 7 of those accidents are fatal
  • There is an average of 8 people killed in the fatal accidents each year
  • The average number of accidents resulting in injuries is 126 with 243 people being injured.

If your child is one of those statistics, then it is your right to pursue compensation from the responsible party.

Holding The Responsible Accountable

By taking action against those who are at fault with the help of your St. Paul personal injury attorney, you are holding those who are responsible accountable for what has happened to your child and to you. Whether the garage did not properly maintain the bus or someone else on the road was responsible for the accident, you can hold more than one party responsible. Sometimes it is a combination of driver neglect, mechanical defects, or lack of inspection. Whatever the reason for the accident, we will get to the bottom of it and secure the best possible results for you.
