School Bus Accidents

The school bus is often regarded as a safe, comforting, positive force in communities.  School buses are designed to be safer than passenger vehicles in avoiding crashes and preventing injuries.  They are the safest mode of transportation in getting children back and forth to school.  And they keep an estimated 17.3 million cars off roads surrounding schools each morning.

Most children ride the bus on a daily basis during the school year.  When parents put their children on the bus every morning or the children board the bus in the afternoon, they trust that the driver is ready to safely operate the bus and is fully rested.  They are also assume that the vehicle is maintained, fully operational and mechanically sound.

Unfortunately, the laws are not always followed by bus drivers, bus owners and school districts which sometimes result in tragic consequences. There are many factors as to why school bus accidents occur.

  • Drug and Alcohol
  • Driver Not Fully Rested
  • Unsafe And Aggressive Driving
  • Distraction
  • Mechanical Failure
