School Bus Accidents in New Jersey
School bus accidents do not happen as commonly as many other accidents on our roads. This is due to the fact that school bus drivers are expected to take special precautions and be some of the safest drivers on our roads at all times. However, these accidents still happen every year due to the outright recklessness of others. In fact, in one year’s time throughout the entire U.S., it is estimated that approximately 17,000 people are hurt as a result of school bus accidents. Children are at a particular risk in these accidents and are sometimes severely injured as a result. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a school bus accident, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust.
