Did you know that Wisconsin averages over 560 school bus accidents every year? That may not seem like many, but when you think of how many children ride school buses every single day, it suddenly becomes apparent how many children are at risk. If your child is injured in an accident with a school bus, a qualified Milwaukee school bus accident lawyer can help.
Because Wisconsin voters and legislators place such a high value on the safety of our children, under Wisconsin law, school buses must exercise the highest degree of care for safety. Unfortunately, not all common carriers do. Driver negligence, improper maintenance, inadequate driver training, and neglecting to adequately signal the pick-up or discharge of children can all lead to life-threatening school bus accidents.
In fact, school bus accidents commonly include:
- Buses crashing into stationary objects
- School bus rollovers
- Improper enforcement of the “danger zone” during student discharge and pick-up (resulting in children being hit when they’re getting on or off the bus)
- Accidents with other vehicles
