Every school day, children are loaded onto school buses around the country. Most school districts contract with school bus companies and drivers to transport our children to their schools.
If something goes terribly wrong and a child is injured in a school bus crash, you need someone to advocate and fight for your family’s rights.
Negligence by a school bus driver or another motorist can cause school bus collisions. It is known that school bus drivers can be distracted by cell phones and GPS devices, just as other motorists can.
Because the school bus companies are transporting children, there are certain Illinois safety standards that must be met. Even in the worst of weather conditions, school bus drivers and school bus companies must be prepared to avoid school bus accidents. Some of the roads that may usually be traveled may be closed because of weather conditions. School bus drivers and their companies must know about these conditions to avoid trouble. In many school buses today, they are not equipped with seat belts for the children. That fact alone can lead to serious injuries to children.
