If my child was injured on a school bus in Tampa Bay, can I sue the school?
At Morgenstern & Herd, we’ve handled several cases involving child injuries on a school bus due to the actions of other students. When that happens, the only way to make a recovery for compensation for your injuries is if the school authority had notice that the child causing the injury was a problem. In that case, often, you can make the case that the child shouldn’t have been on the school bus where they could have taken action or bodily injury against your child. The first thing that you should do is make sure you seek care and treatment for your child in that situation so that you know what the injuries are. Then call a lawyer. It’s a complicated process to give the schoolboard appropriate notice if an injury occurs on the bus itself not due to a specific accident but due to the actions of another child. If your child is injured on the bus because an accident occurs from a driver, another driver, drive of a truck, driver of a car, you still should have your child seek immediate treatment and then call an attorney. In the case where your child is injured on the school bus through the actions of another driver, we can check to see if there’s insurance coverage on the part of that driver for bodily injuries. Drivers are not required in the state of Florida to have bodily injury coverage. Many do. Many do not. We have to check that out and then also check out your insurance coverage to see if we can get your child compensation for injuries sustained on a school bus.
