Injuries Children Suffer in Atlanta School Bus Crashes

It’s just the beginning of the school year and already school bus accidents have been reported in many states including Nebraska, Florida, New Jersey, and Texas. It seems like every year there are more children getting injured in school bus crashes around this nation than ever before. While there are more school buses and cars on the road than in the past, some of the main reasons for school bus accidents in Georgia and throughout this nation are from distracted drivers in passenger vehicles and from negligent school bus drivers. 

When a school bus crash in Georgia occurs, children on the bus can suffer serious injuries or even die as a result. Some of the most common school bus injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries 
  • Head injuries 

Some school bus accidents occur from bus drivers losing control of a bus, running traffic signals, driving distracted at the wheel, or braking too late. Other school bus crashes have happened due to mechanical or brake failure. Whatever the reason, buses are top-heavy vehicles and can overturn if involved in an accident. If a school bus flips over, serious injuries or death may be the result.

If your child was injured in an Atlanta school bus crash, please call an experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyer who can help make sure your family’s interests are being protected and that you receive just compensation.
