Atlanta Child Struck By School Bus

By Grant Law Office on November 18, 2015

As a parent, your duty is to love, protect, and nurture your children. But, you also need to start letting them out of the nest so they can learn to make their way in the world. This can be a difficult thing for most parents.

A recent story on Atlanta’s WXIA 11alive describes a nightmare for any parent. A seven year old child was injured when he was hit by a school bus. Fortunately, the child survived and was taken to a nearby hospital. The accident happened when the child got off the bus and bent down to tie his shoe. The bus driver couldn’t see the child and began to drive away, accidentally hitting the child. The incident is still under investigation.

Unfortunately, many children and adults are injured by vehicles each year. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the year 2012, 76,000 pedestrians were injured in traffic accidents and another 4,743 were killed nationwide.

If you or a loved one gets injured in a traffic accident, you may be entitled to compensation for damages including:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Costs of in home care
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Permanent injury or disability
  • Loss of wages due to time missed from work

To protect yourself and your family’s future, it’s important to contact an experienced pedestrian accident lawyer if you’re in a bus accident.
