At some point or another, your child may end up travelling on a school minibus, whether it’s to get to school or as part of a school trip. We trust the school and the transport company they have chosen, to get our children from A to B safely, so when school minibus injuries occur as the result of an accident, it can be a stressful and upsetting time for families whose children have been hurt.
School minibus injuries could leave children severely injured both physically and psychologically – they may not feel confident travelling alone on a school bus in the future. Physical injuries could range from minor injuries such as whiplash, cuts and bruises, to severe, life-changing injuries including brain injuries, loss of limbs and crush injuries, often sustained when buses roll over.
If your child has been hurt, take action and find out whether you’re eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation today by getting in touch with a personal injury lawyer. Remember that a three-year time limit applies for personal injury claims, so it’s best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after your child’s accident occurs.
How much compensation will I receive?
There is no hard and fast answer to this question, as the amount you’ll receive will take into account your child’s pain and suffering, how their injuries have affected them and any financial losses incurred (for example, for medical treatment). Of course, if your child has been left disabled after a school bus accident, you’re likely to receive a more substantial settlement than if they have sustained minor whiplash and bruises, but your personal injury lawyer will refer to similar cases from the past to ascertain how much compensation you are entitled to receive.
