I recently received a letter that read something like this: "My child was injured on a school bus that was involved in a motor vehicle accident. Can I make a claim against the school district for my child's injuries and medical bills?" The answer is yes. If your child is injured in a school bus accident and the bus driver is at fault, the parent can make a claim against the school district for the child's medical bills and the child's other harms and losses experienced in that accident.
But claims against a school district are limited in many respects; the amount that you can claim is limited, and more importantly, the time frame in which you can make such a claim is extremely limited. At Roberts & Roberts, we've had the experience of representing parents who’ve had children that were seriously injured or even killed in a school bus accident. We've represented those parents not only in the trial courts but before the Texas Supreme Court.
We hope that your child is never injured in a school bus accident, but if that happens, call us; we can help. The call costs you nothing; it could mean everything.
