Justice for Victims Injured in School Bus Accidents

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan often represents victims injured in school bus accidents. As an experienced accident lawyer, he recently discussed the legal rights available for injured victims of high school bus accidents, including possible financial compensation.

"School bus accidents happen for a number of reasons, including defects with the bus itself, negligence by the transportation company, as well as other traffic and road conditions. In these instances, internal factors may lead to problems for the driver, resulting in an unexpected collision and possibly bodily harm to the passengers. When an accident happens, it's important to investigate to find out what happened. It is the responsibility of high school transportation companies to make sure their vehicles are in good shape. Furthermore, they should make sure their drivers are properly trained and do regular maintenance checks on their vehicles to reduce the risk of preventable incidents. The transportation company could be held responsible for injuries related to the accident if they neglected to regulate safely."

"The victims of bus accidents can best identify all responsible parties with the help of an experienced accident lawyer. If injured victims file a lawsuit against a negligent transportation company, they may be entitled to financial compensation. If the employer allowed the driver to drive despite their history of reckless driving, they could be considered negligent."
