School Bus Accidents

School Bus Accident Attorney Naples, FL

“It takes a village…” to deliver kids (and adults) safely to schools, trips, and home on these buses. When a school bus accident occurs, the liability can be traced to multiple points:

  • The driver, for negligence or recklessness
  • The school district, for failure to screen drivers or maintain buses properly
  • The bus manufacturer, for defects in design
  • Motorists or riders for actions that led to the accident

Public school drivers and districts are considered part of the government and may have special protections. Multiple injured parties can further complicate your case. Put our energy and deep experience to work for you when pursuing these complex claims.
