School Bus Accidents

Philadelphia School Bus Accident Lawyers

Many children in Philadelphia, and throughout Pennsylvania ride the school bus each day to school, to sporting events and to field trips. Most travel to and from their destinations without any incident. Unfortunately, some parents must deal with the devastating reality that their son or daughter was injured in a school bus accident.

The Causes of School Bus Accidents

School districts and cities are expected to hire safe school bus drivers with little or no traffic violations on their record. Similarly, bus drivers are expected to drive safely and keep children and other passengers safe. But this does not always happen. Sudden stops and turns can throw children from their seats, resulting in lacerations, bruises and broken bones. Allowing kids to move around while the bus is moving is also a main contributor to school bus injuries.

Other causes of injuries and wrongful death include:

  • Failure to stop at a railroad crossing
  • Driving too fast for weather conditions
  • Failure to put out the stop sign that warns other drivers of children getting in or out of the bus
  • Defective brakes, security signals and other parts
  • Driving while tired or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Overloading the bus past recommended capacity

At MyPhillyLawyer, we are skilled at handling accident injury cases. We thoroughly review the bus accident and consult accident reconstruction experts to determine who is at fault. We then gather medical reports, witness testimony and other evidence to build a strong and effective case designed to collect the damages your injured child deserves.

“I will tell all my family and friends about you”

I was never involved in an auto accident. I was very nervous. You and your office staff always took the time to answer my questions. It was very comforting to know that you were my lawyer.

- Debra Barr

You agreed to represent me for my automobile accident when other attorneys turned the case down. I was thrilled with the settlement you negotiated. I will tell all my family and friends about you.

- Suzanna Klipach

My friend told me that [MyPhillyLawyer] was a very reliable company and that they take care of everything. Attorney Dean I. Weitzman was always on top of everything. He was very efficient and he made me really comfortable. I didn't know what to do and how it all works. He was very helpful. I did not have to worry about anything. They did it all very professionally. There were no problems whatsoever.

- Tatiana Bardina

What impressed me most is that I called him [Dean I. Weitzman] and told him I wanted to come and see him. He said "No, you were in an accident and I will come and see you." He came the next day. We've been friends ever since. I call him if I have a problem, and he calls me back. I tell him you are like my son. I never had to go anywhere on my own. He always said "I will pick you up and take you there." That's what I love about him.
