Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

School Bus Accident LawyerA school bus accident is every parent’s nightmare. While they may not occur as often as automobile crashes, bus accidents happen far more frequently than we may think. When you send your child off to school, the last thing you should have to think about is the thought of them getting injured in their trip to school. However, these accidents do happen and the consequences should not be taken lightly. The injuries that result from a school bus accident can be very serious, especially because children are one of the most vulnerable demographics to injury. If your child or another child you know has suffered an injury from a bus accident, it may be in your best interest to reach out to Cohen & Cohen, a trusted law firm of the Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia, and surrounding areas that specializes in school bus accident cases.

When you decide to send your child off on their way to school by means of bus, you are primarily putting your full trust in the bus driver and the bus company to transport your child to and from school safely. You trust that the bus is properly maintained, trust that the driver is adequately trained, and most importantly, you trust that the driver will do everything in their power to make sure the duration of the bus ride is safe. While many bus drivers and companies live up to these standards, there are always exceptions. After all, bus drivers are people. They are prone to making mistakes just like everybody else. You can only hope that mistake isn’t going to cost your child a serious injury that may last for a lifetime.

If you or your child notices your bus driver, say for example, texting while driving or dozing off at the wheel, you can be sure that they are not upholding their responsibility to bring your child to and from school safely. If you or your child notices your bus driver reeking of alcohol or other substances, you can be sure that they also are not upholding their duty to you. There are many reasons for how a school bus accident can occur. While some are out of the control of both you and the driver, many others can be controlled and monitored. Some of the most common reasons for a school bus accident include (but are not limited to):

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Distracted driving (such as texting and driving or making personal phone calls)
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Reckless driving
  • Inexperienced driving
  • Extreme weather (such as heavy snow or ice, strong winds, heavy rain, etc.)

Regardless of the cause, school bus accidents can lead to serious injuries for your child. These can carry a large emotional impact and an even larger bill. Injuries are costly, and it shouldn’t be your responsibility to have to worry about fronting the bill. If your child has suffered from a school bus accident, do not hesitate to reach out to Cohen & Cohen and we will be more than happy to set you up with a skilled school bus accident lawyer on our team.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
