Atlanta School Bus Accident Lawyer


Accident Lawyer Atlanta

Over 23 million — approximately 25% — of school-age children ride school buses each day in the U.S. It is therefore not surprising that school bus–related accidents send 17,000 children to emergency rooms each year. Only 42% of school bus-related injuries are sustained in crashes, however. In fact, the majority of school bus injuries occur when children are boarding or exiting the school bus. Children may slip and fall while getting on or off the bus, passing motorists may fail to stop and hit children coming off the bus, or the bus driver may run a child over. In fact, it is estimated that two-thirds of all children killed while boarding or exiting a school bus are hit by the bus itself, not by another vehicle. Although most of school bus–related injuries are minor, school bus accidents can result in serious, catastrophic injuries or even death. If your child has been injured in an Atlanta school bus accident, whatever the cause, you should seek the advice of an experienced Atlanta accident lawyer.

Leigh R. Bodner, P.C. has been handling Atlanta accident cases for over 30 years. Filing a lawsuit against a school, school district, or other public entity can be complex, and strict statutes of limitations apply. Bus accidents may be caused by the negligence of the school or district, bus driver, or other drivers on the road, which can make it difficult to determine who is liable for your child's injuries. An Atlanta accident lawyer can help investigate the cause of the accident, identify all responsible parties, and file a claim within the time limit set by law. Contact Leigh R. Bodner, P.C. at 404-262-3343 today for a free, no-obligation consultation regarding your school bus accident case.
