An accident can happen on or off a school bus. If your child was injured or died, you will need an experienced legal professional in your corner.

Thousands of students ride school buses each day in Bridgeport, Stamford, Norwalk and throughout Fairfield County. Parents expect their children to arrive at their destination each day safely and securely. They trust school systems to properly maintain all buses for safety and to hire qualified, licensed drivers with a track record of driving safely.

That's why a bus accident can be so shocking. School bus accidents on Fairfield County's busy roads and highways can cause devastating injuries to children, including wrongful death.  Children may get hurt on or off the bus. They might get struck by the bus as pedestrians while waiting at the bus stop.

Even a low-speed impact between a school bus and another vehicle can result in injuries to children ranging from broken bones to traumatic, life-threatening brain injuries. To make matters even worse, parents may even learn the bus driver or school system contributed to the accident. When the physical, emotional and financial well-being of your child is at stake, don't take chances. Contact Fairfield County school bus accident lawyer Jeremy Vishno today.

How do Fairfield County school bus accidents happen?

School bus accidents are complex legal matters with many different factors. In some cases, it's possible another driver caused the accident. However, in many instances, the bus driver or school system may be held liable for causing an accident. A bus driver may have missed a stop sign or red light while texting and driving, or even worse, choose to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A school system might fail to hire adequate bus monitors, resulting in an assault or even a student falling off a bus. School bus accidents may also involve:

  • Children run over by school buses
  • Bus drivers who fail to check for children at the end of a route
  • Children dropped off at the wrong bus stop
  • School districts that hire drivers with a history of driving infractions
  • School districts that fail to properly train drivers
