When parents send their children on the school bus each morning, they assume they will be safely transported to school and back home at the end of the day. Most of the time this is the case for Atlanta kids, but occasionally a serious bus accident occurs. A car wreck can lead to unexpected injuries and heartache for families.
A serious bus accident recently occurred in Fulton County that tragically killed two teens who were on the way to the dentist. The two brothers were traveling together when a school bus failed to yield and hit their car. The bus driver has been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide and failure to yield.
No parent ever expects to get the call that their kid has been in a serious car accident. This situation is a parent’s worst nightmare. When the accident is caused by someone else’s negligence, it can be a maddening situation. A legal professional who is skilled in personal injury understands what these families are going through and can help a family explore the legal options they may have. If an accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, pain and suffering and other damages. An attorney can aggressively fight for their client, seeking appropriate compensation.
No family should ever have to suffer the loss of a loved one due to someone else’s negligence. These families are entitled to legal options and it is important to hold a negligent driver responsible for their mistake so that they don’t harm anyone else.
