Eight people injured in car accident involving a school bus

The morning routine for many children in Florida involves getting on the big yellow school bus. Most of the time these trips to and from school are uneventful, as they should be. However, no matter how carefully the bus driver operates his or her vehicle, you can't control the actions of others on the road, as one recent incident shows.

A morning-time collision between a school bus and a semi-truck in Florida injured eight individuals. The semi-truck struck the bus from behind. There were 29 pupils on the bus when the crash took place. According to police, two of the pupils were seriously injured and had to be flown to an area hospital. In addition, six other people, one of which was the driver of the school bus, were also hospitalized. Their injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

Parents deserve to feel that their children will be safe while on the school bus. Unfortunately, car accidents involving school buses do occur. In this recent incident, numerous individuals were injured, some of them seriously, necessitating care in the hospital.

When a person is injured in a car crash and has to be hospitalized, it won't be long before the bills start to pile up. And, even after a person is released from the hospital, there still may be costs associated with rehabilitation and follow-up care. In addition, there is the less-tangible but still significant emotional distress an accident can cause. Therefore, those who are injured in an auto accident may want to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions. One way to do this is through filing a lawsuit. An attorney can help people pursue compensation for the damages they suffered due to a car crash.
