For a variety of reasons, a school bus accident personal injury case is more complicated than many other types of motor vehicle accident cases. If you have suffered serious personal injuries or the loss of a loved one in a bus accident, the critical first step is to secure legal counsel that has experience and a track record of success with this specific area of law — not just motor vehicle accidents in general, but school bus accidents in particular.
At Brown, Moore & Associates, PLLC, we have more than 40 combined years of legal experience in many types of personal injury cases, including bus accident litigation. Our Charlotte school bus accident lawyers have the experience and skill to help you secure the maximum compensation award possible in your case.
It is important to work with a legal team with specific school bus accident litigation experience, because school bus accidents bring their own unique complications and wrinkles, including:
- Specialized law: Special laws can govern the prosecution of an injury claim arising out of a school bus accident. It may be required that an injured victim brings his or her claim against the local board of education, and has the claim adjudicated through the Industrial Commission. Unlike a typical auto accident injury claim, there are specific statutes detailing different procedures for school bus accident cases.
- Damage caps: These specific laws may limit the recovery a plaintiff can receive in bus accident cases, making it all the more important to make sure you have experienced legal counsel that can help you maximize your case.
- Victim age: Many school bus accidents involve injuries to children or adolescents, presenting special considerations in the litigation.
