Who Is Responsible For My Son’s Injuries Following A Florida School Bus Accident?
It depends on the nature of the accident. For example, a school bus driver and school district might be responsible for your son’s injuries; however, the driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash could also be responsible. Sometimes, there could be other parties involved such as the vehicle manufacture or tire manufacture that could be liable for the crash.
For example, if the school bus driver was texting while driving, speeding, ran a red light, or doing something else that caused the crash, he or she and the school district would be liable for your son’s injuries, medical bills, and damages. Additionally, if the school district failed to get the school bus maintained and the lack of maintenance led to the accident, they also could be held liable for the wreck.
If another driver caused the Florida school bus accident and your son’s injuries, you may have a personal injury claim against the driver’s insurance company. To find out who you should hold accountable and how to obtain the maximum compensation possible, you should speak with a knowledgeable South Florida accident attorney.
