If your child was injured in a school bus accident then you should call the offices of Jaroslawicz & Jaros which has over forty years of experience in this type of negligence case. Whether your child was injured while getting on or off the bus or while a passenger on the bus your child is entitled to receive compensation for their injuries.

School bus lawsuits we have handled have involved children who were injured when the school bus was involved in an accident with another motor vehicle; children who were injured because they were not properly seated or seat belted; school bus driver loses control and skids on slippery icy road; a school matron who was standing and caring for the children when the bus suddenly stopped and she was violently thrown about.

Our experienced attorneys have handled many school bus accident cases including a substantial jury verdict for a child that was let off of a school bus and then struck by a car-we were successful because we obtained the driver’s training material, including the manual and videos, to show that the bus driver did not follow the proper procedures to protect the child while crossing the street.

Many school bus accidents happen while children are getting on or off the school bus. Although school buses are equipped with flashing lights and stop signs, we all know that many passing drivers will proceed and simply ignore the lights and disobey the stop sign. The bus driver must therefore be aware and alert to protect the children from such motorists.

Millions of children ride a school bus twice a day. Unfortunately, accidents will happen. When they do happen, you need an experienced attorney to guide you to obtain the compensation you are entitled to.

In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed within a certain period of time, known as the statute of limitations. Please call to ensure that you do not waive your right to compensation by waiting too long.

If a City or State agency needs to be named in the lawsuit as having been negligent in the school bus accident, then you must be aware that they have very strict time limits to file what is called a Notice of Claim. If this Notice of Claim is not filed within the period of time set by statute you may lose your right to sue for your damages. Sometimes a Notice of Claim must be filed within ninety (90) days of an accident.
