What if My Kid Was Hurt on a School Bus?

If your child was injured on a school bus, whether or not your child can bring a claim depends on a number of factors. First, we need to do an investigation and try to determine what the cause of the injury was. Was it caused by the bus driver? Was it caused by the school itself? Was it caused by another student that was on the bus?

The second thing that needs to be understood is that schools usually are covered by governmental immunity, and the amount of time that your child has to bring a claim against the school could be shortened, and several steps need to be followed in order to be able to bring a claim against a school district.
