Pursuing Recovery for Injuries and Losses Caused by a School Bus Accident

Let us say that your child is on a school bus in Pulaski County headed for Parkview Arts and Science Magnet High School, located at 2501 John Barrow Road, Little Rock, Arkansas 72204. While traveling on John Barrow Road, a massive truck pulls out in front of the school bus. The bus driver ends up rear-ending the truck, resulting in many of the children onboard sustaining injuries. When it comes to obtaining compensation for your child, it is important for a school bus accident attorney in Little Rock to identify who is responsible for the collision occurring in the first place.

In regards to the example above, if the bus driver’s negligence, e.g. speeding or not paying attention while driving, is what caused the collision, you will have to establish the bus driver’s negligence in order to recover economic damages, such as medical bills, and non-economic damages, such as loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, disfigurement, and pain and suffering. Establishing negligence requires you to show that your child’s injuries were the result of the bus driver breaching a duty of reasonable care that he or she owed your child.

On the other hand, if the collision happened because the bus’s brakes failed, the bus driver may not be held legally responsible, and there would probably be an investigation to determine why the brakes failed. If the investigation revealed that the bus had not been properly maintained and that is why the rear-end crash occurred, the bus company or school system could be held responsible. After such a collision, you should consider retaining a knowledgeable school bus accident lawyer in the Little Rock area with bus accident litigation experience who could assert your rights and help you substantiate your claim.
