Riding the school bus is considered one of the most convenient and safest ways to transport children to and from school. School bus accidents often refer to crashes, but can also include slip and falls, or other accidents that occur inside or around the vehicle.
If you and/or your child has been injured in a school bus accident, do not hesitate to contact Werner Law Firm to speak with one of our experienced school bus accident lawyers.
