School Bus Crashes in New Jersey
Most parents are not present when their child’s school bus is involved in an accident. This can make getting honest answers regarding the cause of the crash and who was responsible extremely difficult.
The well-established school bus injury attorneys at Metro Law have the experience required to thoroughly investigate the cause of your child’s school bus accident and construct a good personal injury claim that focuses on your needs and rights.
Children’s bodies are still growing and developing, meaning that a child is far more susceptible to injury than an adult.
School bus accidents tend to be exceptionally serious not only because their passengers are almost exclusively children, but because of the large number of them they have onboard combined with a lack of the advanced safety features that are present in smaller passenger vehicles.
Following a serious school bus accident, children can be hospitalized for weeks or even months while they recover from their injuries. The emotional, physical, and economic impacts of any vehicle accident are always cumulative.
Victims and their families should not be forced to struggle through the disastrous consequences of an avoidable accident.
Children hurt in school bus crashes frequently need ongoing medical treatment that is extremely expensive and can place their entire family under financial duress.
