School Bus Accidents: The Dangers Your Children May Face

Posted by attorney Christopher Zachar

School bus accidents happen more frequently than we would like to admit. School buses lack seatbelts or other safety restraints found in other passenger vehicles. School bus injuries can include physical assault injuries as well as school bus accident injuries.

School bus accidents occur traveling to and from school or on school field trips.

The Phoenix child injury lawyers at Zachar Law Firm represent children and the families of children injured on a school bus or in a school bus accident.

Because school bus drivers and school bus laws and regulations can create unique issues, if your child is involved in a school bus accident, you should consult an attorney who understands school bus laws and child injury claims. In fact, the time frames for dealing with these legal issues are much shorter than normal injury claims, and therefore you should not wait to contact and speak with an attorney about your rights.

We have over 18 years of child injury claim experience, including school bus accident claims. We are thorough, caring and provide aggressive representation for the families of school bus accident victims.
