Personal Injury

Is there a legal difference when a traffic accident involves a school bus?

Personal Injury

When someone is injured due to the negligence of a school bus driver (for example, a student on the bus or another auto), the law is different from a typical car wreck. First, the case is filed before the North Carolina Industrial Commission. This includes the filing of an affidavit (and not a complaint). Next, the school bus driver is represented by the NC Attorney General’s office. Although there are similarities with other injury cases, there are a number of differences in a school bus case that are important for you or your attorney to understand. We’ve handled several school bus cases, and we know the route to go.
