Because of their size and the precious nature of their cargo, school buses must adhere to a higher safety standard than other motor vehicles. There are even unique rules that apply to automobiles in traffic around school buses. Everyone has seen the stop sign on school buses that tells other drivers not to pass when children are boarding or exiting a bus. When someone fails to follow the rules and an injury results, the negligent party should be held accountable. This can be done with an Orlando school bus accident lawyer.
At The Umansky Law Firm, our bus accident lawyers handle cases involving people hit by school buses, as well as cases involving school bus accidents in which the children on a bus are injured due to negligent behavior.
Accidents involving drivers or pedestrians hit by school buses are uniquely challenging. The school bus may be owned and operated by a private entity, in which case it may be handled like a commercial vehicle accident. In most cases, however, the school bus is owned and operated by the school district, a government entity. There are specific rules and limitations for filing lawsuits against government entities. We know the rules.
Whether an Orlando school bus accident was caused by the negligence of a school bus driver, or the accident was the result of a collision caused by the driver of another vehicle, if a child was injured, the parents have the right to take action. We will find out who was responsible, and we will take action. We will seek compensation for the injuries your child has suffered.
