On Tuesday, November 12, 2013, in Fort Worth, five students were injured in an accident involving a school bus. This accident occurred on Interstate 35W just near 28th Street. A Lewisville school bus was rear ended while driving southbound on the highway around 10:30 a.m. The Fort Worth Police Department reported that the bus was rear ended by a charter bus. Although there were no passengers in the charter bus that morning, the school bus was carrying 38 students. The 5 injured students were taken to Cook Children’s Medical Center to treat their minor injuries.

Automobile accidents are quite common and very unfortunate for those involved, however they seem to be even more tragic when they involve innocent children--especially an entire bus full. In this scenario a potential civil case could benefit those families with children injured in the accident by either the fault of the bus driver, or the charter bus driver. Although officials are still investigating the specifics of the accident to determine who is at fault, the victims’ families could file a civil claim against the charter bus company or the school district. From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families involved in motor vehicle accidents. The families of these children should consider consulting with an experienced attorney to file a personal injury claim against either the school district, or the company for which the charter bus driver is employed by—depending on which party is found responsible. A successful civil claim will ensure that the injured children will receive support for the unexpected medical expenses they incurred and for the pain and suffering from their injuries. It will enable the families of the victims to pay off these costly medical bills without being burdened by out-of-pocket expenses.
