Aging and Dangerous Tires on Our School Buses
Every year, thousands of children and teenagers get to and from school aboard school buses. Unfortunately, so many of these vehicles do not undergo regular maintenance and repairs to ensure that they are safe for daily use. As a result, it is not uncommon to find a school bus with tires that have not been replaced for well over eight to 10 years, which can be extremely dangerous. Aged tires pose a serious safety hazard – but most importantly, it is a hazard that is entirely preventable.
If your son or daughter was involved in a school bus accident that you believe was caused by aged and worn out tires, please get in touch with the Jacksonville bus accident attorneys at Farah & Farah for the dedicated representation you need during this difficult time. Call 855-797-9899 for a free case evaluation. You may be entitled to receive significant compensation.
Who Is Responsible for School Bus Maintenance?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) claims that school buses are the safest mode of transportation for school children, but aging bus tires are a very real danger that often goes unaddressed. The NHTSA does not even have any requirements that school or commercial bus tires should be replaced at a certain age.
However, there are several parties that bear responsibility for ensuring that your child’s school bus is safe, including the third-party maintenance company, the school district, and/or the tire manufacturer. If your son or daughter was injured due to one or more of these parties’ negligence, you have the right to hold them accountable in a personal injury claim.
At Farah & Farah, our attorneys will not rest until we have secured the rightful compensation you and your child need and deserve. We will conduct a thorough investigation and work with our extensive network of experts to build a strong, evidence-based case in your favor. With our team on your side, you can be confident that the at-fault party will be held accountable.
Gaining Financial Security
When another person or agency failed to do their job to ensure your son or daughter’s safety, you should not have to pay for the resulting damages. Depending on the severity of your child’s injuries, the medical bills alone can become overwhelming in a matter of weeks. Our legal team will fight on your behalf to ensure that you get the rightful coverage you deserve for the following:
- Medical costs
