Protecting Our Children in School Bus Accidents

One of the greatest concerns a parent will ever have is the safety of their children. When you entrust another with your child's welfare and any form of negligence occurs, the results can be heartbreaking. If your child has suffered an injury from a school bus accident, a hard-hitting California bus accident lawyer from our firm, Matiasic & Johnson LLP, has the experience necessary to forcefully seek justice and compensation on your child's behalf. Our attorney s have been practicing law for 25 years and have recovered millions of dollars for our clients. Publications such as Sierra Star, San Jose Mercury News, Oakland Tribune, Fresno Bee and Santa Cruz Sentinel have featured us based on our proven record of success.

Millions of children are transported daily to and from school by bus. Newer school buses are required by law to have shoulder and lap restraints; however, there is no law that requires older buses to be retrofitted. This creates a greater risk of injury to children who ride in these busses.

Sudden stops, hazardous road conditions that cause the bus to jerk and sway, overcompensating to stay in a lane and swerving to avoid another vehicle or a pedestrian may all cause an accident and different types of injuries to occur. A driver may also be untrained and inexperienced, be under the influence of alcohol or drugs or simply be negligent in following safety standards. If your child was hurt in a school bus accident, a California bus accident lawyer from our firm needs to be consulted with immediately.

Common Bus Injuries in California

Injuries associated with bus accidents include soft tissue injuries, burns, paralysis, broken bones, spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries, to name a few. In some cases, a wrongful death may have occurred. The school board is typically responsible for the safety standards being enforced and maintenance functions being performed. If maintenance issues and defective parts are not taken care of correctly or bus recall notices are ignored, the result could be tragic to a family. Let our firm help you through this difficult time by providing you the legal expertise you need in navigating the claims process.
