Children In Bus Accidents: More Common Than You Think

Did you know that there are an estimated 26,000 school bus accidents in the United States per year? That is a staggering statistic that should worry any parent who sends their child to school on a bus. There have been many times in which one of our Beverly Hills personal injury attorneys at Akiva Niamehr LLP has had to take on a case like this due to a child being injured in one of those accidents. Depending on the extent of the physical injury to the child, these cases are rigorously litigated and fought by our team of professionals.

Located in Los Angeles, California, Akiva Niamehr LLP has a team of expert bus accident attorneys standing by to help anyone who may find themselves facing this horrible situation and not knowing what steps to take. An attorney is key in these situations because he or she can take care of your legal claim from A to Z while scheduling and assisting the appropriate medical treatment for your loved one. In times of tragedy, assistance is useful to for those struggling with the fact that their child has been injured and may require extensive medical treatment for their condition.

Although school buses are considered to be one of the safest methods of transportation for children, the reality of your child being harmed in a bus can change your whole world in a split second. Many parents feel even worse if their child is injured this way because they weren’t there to protect them. We all expect the bus drivers to keep our children safe, but unfortunately, events play out in a way that is unforeseen and unexpected. Sometimes, children can even be injured by a school bus as a pedestrian crossing the street.

It is critical that anyone who has a child who is harmed in a bus accident pays special attention to documenting the child’s progress when it comes to their injuries and how they are progressing from them. Medical treatment is essential. Legal assistance is also a must.  The attorney can track and monitor the treatments, procedures and all other information necessary to make your claim against the liable party. This information will be critically important for the insurance companies that get involved.

Another step that all must take is to file a claim with their insurance as soon as they realize that their child has been injured. The sooner that this happens, the sooner the investigation of responsibility can begin and the sooner one can begin to get the justice that they deserve for what has happened to their child.

How Does Negligence Work In A Court Of Law?

There is a lay person’s definition of the word negligence, and then there is the definition of this action as it relates to what holds up in court. Personal injury lawyers frequently investigate if the incident that is being described to them by a potential client seems to fit into the category of someone who has literally committed negligence or not. Car accident lawyers will not proceed with a case in California if they do not think that it will reach the legal definition of negligence at the very least. Aggravated forms of negligence that will definitely be less difficult to prove in court include recklessness such as felony drunk driving.

What Is Negligence?

In a strict sense this means that the offending party did not act with the necessary care to perform the action that they were taking at a necessary time and as a result, someone ended up getting hurt.  Negligence can be present in dog bite attacks, premises liability cases, drunk driver accidents, pedestrian accidents, car accidents, construction accidents, burn injuries  and more. In a car accident scenario, this can mean that they were doing something such as talking or texting on their cell phone while driving or failing to act as a reasonable person would under the circumstances. An automatic or inferred assumption of negligence, called negligence per se,  is arrived at when a California Vehicle Code Section is violated. This is why police reports also become a critical factor in a negligence or recklessness determination. For instance, if the officer cited the other party for driving at an unsafe speed which is California Vehicle Code section 22350, then an inference of negligence already exists. In more serious accidents that involve a car getting totaled, a person being taken to the hospital for serious injuries, negligence is somewhat easier to prove when one looks at the property damages and bodily injury that resulted, especially where more than one person was injured.

Since many different scenarios can occur and do occur, it is best to contact one our fine car accident litigators at Akiva Niamehr LLP to discuss your case.

How is Negligence Proven by Our Car Accident Attorneys at Akiva Niamehr LLP?

Our law firm is going to look at each individual case that comes before it to try to determine if one of our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys can make your claim a successful one. Proving this means showing a number of elements to the court.

One has to show that the other driver had a duty of care that they were expected to uphold. They must also prove that the offending individual breached that legal duty that was placed in them when they acted in a certain manner or failed to take certain actions. Finally, it must be shown that the negligence was what caused the accident and injuries as a result. These are all high bars to get over, but that is why it is just so important to have a talented attorney who has succeeded on such claims for his clients.
