Experienced Representation for Families of Children Injured on School Buses
Tens of millions of school children ride school buses to and from classes annually in the U.S. Tens of thousands wind up in emergency rooms as a result of school bus accidents.
Crashes account for almost half of these school bus accidents. A dozen school children lose their lives every year.
These are startling statistics. If you as a motorist or your child as a school bus passenger have become one of them, you should take action now to protect your rights — and Carl Nagle of Nagle & Associates will fight right alongside you.
At Nagle & Associates in Winston-Salem and six other convenient law office locations in North Carolina, founding member and skilled child injury attorney Carl Nagle forcefully negotiates with and litigates against insurers for negligent school bus drivers and the school districts who hire them.
School bus injuries can cause incalculable pain and suffering, long-range emotional trauma for a child, and destroy his or her trust in authority figures. These accidents can injure their motorist parents too, costing them income from time off the job, medical expenses and vehicle repair or replacement costs.
From his visits to homes and hospital rooms across the state, Carl Nagle knows firsthand the hardships encountered by school bus accident and public transportation accident injury victims, young and old alike. He carefully prepares your case by coordinating efforts with expert investigative resources, experienced adjusters and accident reconstruction specialists for fact-finding that can benefit you, pretrial and in court. He knows that laws related to school bus accidents are entirely different from other personal injury cases. He researches routing and transportation systems determined by school boards, as well as driver training and eligibility.
Carl Nagle's overriding goal is maximum financial compensation for you, to reflect any and all monetary losses stemming from the bus accident that injured you or your child. It is possible that school bus accident personal injury claims could be filed against a driver, a county and a board of education, as pursued through the North Carolina Industrial Commission (NCIC), which is separately charged with hearing personal injury cases when drivers are negligent.
School bus driver negligence, a dangerous road or highway, inclement weather, a defective bus engine part, inadequate school bus repair or maintenance, or improper hiring and training of drivers are factors that can contribute to school bus accidents, and serious or catastrophic injuries such as:
- Head injuries
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Severe burns
- Fractured and broken bones
- Cuts and bruising
- Internal injury
