Texas school bus accident injures 12 children

A school bus accident that takes place at high speeds or results in a rollover can place the children involved in serious danger. A Texas school bus recently flipped, injuring 12 elementary aged students. The morning accident took place while the school district bus driver was in the process of transporting a total of 19 students between destinations.

Reports indicate that the driver may have been distracted while attempting to monitor the children when he lost control of the vehicle. The bus veered off the highway and flipped over onto its side. A large bus that overturns can throw small children around, slamming them into one another and into the interior sides of the bus.

Multiple paramedics were dispatched to the scene of the accident, and they transported 12 of the injured students to nearby medical facilities. Authorities believe that the hurt children did not suffer any potentially life threatening injuries, and the driver escaped without an injury. Elementary aged children may not be equipped with the experience or vocabulary to accurately describe the pain or trauma they have suffered.

A parent may find that their child is in fact hurt more than they first believed in the days and weeks that follow the accident, particularly since not all injuries manifest themselves in the immediate aftermath of an accident. A Texas parent that whose child was hurt in a school bus accident may face the expenses and stress of long-term rehabilitation or even the potential disability of their young child. In many cases, professional guidance can assist in identifying the parties that may face financial liability and in determining what steps may be necessary in order to perfect a legal claim for monetary damages sustained.
