School Bus Accidents Injury Lawyer

Many parents trust the safety of a school bus to transport their children to and from school. Statistically, school buses are the safest way for kids to make the trip to school every day. Fewer injury accidents occur with school buses than most types of vehicle accidents, but that does not mean that mistakes are not made. If your child is injured in a school bus accident, the school and driver may be liable for injuries.

Considering the cargo that school buses carry, it is expected the utmost caution is used by school districts to choose experienced drivers and maintain their vehicles. School bus drivers should be properly vetted to ensure they do not have any driving violations before they are hired, as well as monitoring their driving record during employment. Buses should receive needed maintenance to ensure they are safe. These preventive measures are critical in preventing school bus accidents and protecting the safety of our children.

Investigating School Bus Accidents

When a school bus injury accident occurs, there are many factors that must be investigated. It is critical to know whether the accident could have been prevented and if there are safety issues that could jeopardize future school bus trips. To determine whether negligence was involved, factors that should be looked at include:

  • Was the driver intoxicated or under the influence of drugs?
  • Was the bus going too fast?
  • Did malfunctioning brakes or other mechanical issues impact the accident?
  • Did defective bus components cause the accident?
  • Failure to follow road regulations

If your child is injured in a school bus accident, it is possible that the school district may be liable for the accident.

What Our Happy Clients say

Based on 21 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
