How Do School Bus Accidents Happen?
Tired or improperly trained operators, faulty or unmaintained vehicles, and dangerous road conditions can all be causes of bus accidents. We have the experience to determine which parties are at fault, the extent of their responsibility, and the amount of damages they should pay.
School buses are large vehicles – often stretching nearly forty feet in length. With eighty passengers aboard the bus can weigh more than 40,000 pounds. At highway speeds, it takes about 300 feet to stop a bus safely. Even at slow speeds, school bus accidents can be gruesome. Drivers are following complex routes, stopping and starting frequently, and often distracted by their passengers. As a result, serious school bus accidents occur far too often.
