School Bus Accidents

Every school bus contains precious cargo that families trust to bring home safely. The good news is that most school buses are safe, and they are considered safer than children riding to school in their parent’s vehicle or walking. Even though great efforts are made to keep kids safe on school buses, there are incidents when negligence can lead to injury. If a school bus accident injured your child in Atlanta, Dwayne L. Brown is available to discuss your legal options.

School bus drivers have an important job, but they are still human and make mistakes. Although they receive training and should have the skills to do their job, it takes more than just knowledge to ensure a busload of kids are safe. Negligence can occur when a school bus driver is tired, distracted or loses control of their students. When poor decisions are made behind the wheel of a school bus, it can lead to a tragic vehicle accident that could change the lives of many people.

Types of School Bus Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 1,282 people were killed in school transportation-related accidents between 2007 and 2016. While 58 children died while riding in a bus, the majority of fatalities were victims outside the bus. Kids walking on the street or riding in other cars, as well as adults in other vehicles, accounted for most of the fatalities. Thousands of others were injured in these accidents, often due to negligence on the part of the school bus driver.

School bus accidents are a tragic occurrence. If you have lost a child or loved one or you sustained serious injuries in a school bus wreck, contact the office of Dwayne L. Brown in Atlanta. These types of accidents can be complicated, and you will want an experienced legal team on your side to fight for your rights.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.
