A school bus had an accident last week on a Houston freeway. A bus which contained Cleveland High School students collided with a semi-truck. Eighteen students were injured. The students on the bus that were injured were all between the ages of 13 and 16 and were taken to area hospitals as a precaution.
Fortunately, none of the students involved in this accident were seriously injured. For the most part, school buses have solid safety records. However, when a serious accident involving a school bus does occur, the occupants of the bus can be seriously injured. School buses are often not equipped with seat belts, so if an accident involves the bus rolling or flipping, or if a serious collision occurs, passengers are usually seriously hurt.
If a person is injured in a school bus accident, that person may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. That lawsuit may be filed against the school district, the driver of the other vehicle involved in the accident, the school bus manufacturer, or another party. You may be able to receive compensation for your medical expenses, time off work, pain and suffering, and more.
