If your child has been injured while on a school bus, people will want to know, “Am I entitled to any type of compensation?” Yes, you are. It depends on the facts of the school bus accident and who is at fault, but there are a couple of aspects to this that I think really require you to contact an attorney and get appropriate legal advice. Here’s why.
Number one, the school bus is owned and operated by the school district. They are given protections under the laws of the state of Nevada, and there are certain requirements that you have to comply with in order to make a claim against them. To make sure that you do not lose the opportunity to get compensation for your child who’s been injured, you need to talk to an attorney to make sure that the proper notifications are given. In addition, there could be other vehicles that are involved that are either fully or partially at fault in causing that bus crash and injuring your child while they are on the bus. Notifications and time frames also apply to them, so you need to have an attorney.
What if your child has been injured but it’s not a crash? Something unusual has happened on that bus; they’ve been attacked by a gang of other students or something like that. Who’s responsible? Well, again, what you need to do is contact an attorney right away because there could be video on that bus that is very critical, and there could be situations where the bus driver and the school district knew of problems and they failed to act. You need somebody who has the ability to get that information and build your claim to protect the interest of your child.
