Jacksonville School Bus Accident Lawyers
School Bus Collision
As parents, there is nothing that we won’t do to keep our children safe. So when we entrust their lives to bus drivers or school district employees, we expect the same kind of dedication and care. Sadly, all too often, these expectations are not met and accidents occur, causing harm to our loved ones. When this happens, we have the right to hold the negligent party, no matter who it may be, responsible for their actions. But in order to successfully pursue a claim against a bus company or operator, parents need a Jacksonville bus accident attorney who has experience with these types of cases.
Over the past three decades, the attorneys at Farah & Farah have helped many families obtain the justice and the compensation they deserve, following a school related accident. We have the resources, the insight and the tenacity to secure a winning verdict. Depending on the severity of the collision and the injuries sustained, your family could receive compensation for one or all of the following:
- Emergency medical transportation and care
- Long term hospital arrangements
- Severe pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
- Wrongful death
Of course for a child, such an accident can greatly interfere with both their school and social life. They could be facing a lifetime of physical and emotional therapy, to say nothing of the pain. This creates a situation in which the child is playing perpetual catch-up with kids their own age.

- Operate the bus in an aggressive manner;
- Text while operating the vehicle;
- Are drunk behind the wheel;
- …or are poorly trained.
