According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an average of 24 school age children die in school transportation related traffic accidents each year. In addition, 17,000 children are sent to the emergency room.
School bus accidents are rare. But when they do happen, they can be absolutely devastating for the families involved. Regardless if the accident occurred due to driver negligence, a faulty vehicle, weather conditions or defective roadways, someone should be held accountable. When someone is held accountable, it becomes more likely that regulations and policies will change. For example, all but six states in the U.S. do not require seat belts or other safety restrains on their buses. Imagine if that were to change. How many children’s lives would be saved?
Filing a claim in a school-bus related accident is not always an easy, straight-forward process. It depends on who you are filing the claim against. If the accident was caused by the driver of another vehicle, you can make a third-party claim with the driver’s insurance provider. That process tends to be a lot less complex than if the claim is filed against the bus driver. School buses are operated by government entities and filing a claim against a governmental body is complicated.
