Common Causes of School Bus Accidents & Injuries
Posted On behalf of Schmidt Kramer on Aug 11, 2015 in Personal Injury
When we think of big yellow school buses, most of us think of our youth and days of pencils and notebooks. We don’t think of the chance that school buses can be involved in an accident.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, each year about 19 children are fatally injured in school bus accidents. Of those injured, five are school bus riders while others are pedestrians.
