School Bus Accident Attorneys in California

We'll Come to You! Schedule Your Free Consultation.

There are nearly half a million school buses in the United States and more than 23 million students take a school bus to and from school every day. There are over 1,000 school bus accidents in the United States each year, many of which result in catastrophic injuries, including spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even wrongful death. School bus crashes are unique from other automobile accidents due to the size and weight of a school bus and the lack of seatbelts and other standard safety features found in cars. Another risk of school bus accidents involves students getting hit while getting on or off the school bus or while crossing the street.

Every day, parents entrust their children’s safety to the school districts that operate the school buses. School bus accidents are particularly concerning because of the precious cargo that they carry—our children. When a school bus accident does occur, it is certain to be a devastating event for the victims and their families.

The California school bus accident attorneys at B&D Law Group, APLC are here to help you through this difficult time. Call our office at (888) 563-4092 for a free consultation regarding your case.

How School Bus Accidents Occur

As common-carriers, school bus operators have a special duty to ensure the safety of their passengers. Unfortunately, this duty is not always upheld.

School bus accidents can be caused by numerous factors, including:

  • Old school buses and outdated equipment
  • School bus driver negligence
  • Dangerous roadway design
  • Defective products
  • Improper maintenance
  • Inadequate school bus driver training
  • Driver inattention
  • Inadequate safety

Immediately following an accident, the agency that owns or operates the school bus will typically conduct an investigation. If, however, you or your child was injured in the accident, it is crucial that you hire an experienced attorney who can conduct an independent investigation to determine the cause of the accident. At B&D Law Group, we work to determine who is liable for the accident and resulting injuries.

School bus accidents are unique because school buses are usually operated by school districts. Because of this, there are special requirements and procedures that need to be followed in order to bring a claim for injuries or wrongful death.
