School Bus Collision Attorneys in Wichita
Rehabilitating Motor Vehicle Crash Victims for 30+ Years
The two Brians of Brian and Brian at Pistotnik Law have been assisting Kansans affected by automobile accidents since 1987. Motor vehicle accidents are already dangerous enough—when it comes to a vehicle as large and heavy as a school bus, a host of new issues arise. Bus drivers can cause catastrophic injuries if they hit something, especially if a pedestrian or cyclist is involved in the crash.
These unique motor vehicle wrecks also involve the increased risk of injury to the children occupying the school bus. Children in school bus collisions often don’t have the protection of safety belts; this lack of restraints can lead to worse injuries than those of a typical car wreck. This is why our school bus collision lawyers in Wichita are committed to getting anyone involved in such a crash the compensation they deserve.
Knowing Your Rights If Affected by a Bus Driver’s Negligence
Bus drivers are entrusted to ensuring children safe passage to and from school, so it can be especially traumatic for both children and their parents in the event of a crash. Our 30-year history of handling personal injury claims of all kinds has enabled us to be compassionate and straightforward with our clients, but aggressive when fighting for them in court.
Bus accidents may be a result of different forms of negligence, including:
- The bus is overloaded or improperly loaded
- The bus driver is operating the vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- The bus driver is operating the vehicle while exhausted
- The bus driver is not trained or qualified to operate the vehicle
- The bus and its equipment are not properly maintained
If you call us, rest assured that we will handle your case with the urgency it deserves, without putting additional pressure or stress on you in your time of recovery.
