Public School Incidents

On December 11, 2013 two school buses from the Athens Independent School District (AISD) collided after school on Wednesday. Both buses were filled with unsuspecting students who were taken to the emergency room to be evaluated after the accident. Unfortunately the driver of one of the buses needed to be transported to East Texas Medical Center because of injuries.

Legal Commentary
Automobile accidents are very common and extremely unfortunate for those involved. However they seem to be even more tragic when they involve innocent children–especially two entire buses full. In this scenario a potential civil case could benefit those families with children who may have received injuries from the accident. Although it is not yet known who was at fault in this accident, the victims’ families could file a civil claim against the school district. From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families involved in motor vehicle accidents. The families of these children and the drivers should consider consulting with an experienced attorney to file a personal injury claim against either the school district or the person at fault. A successful civil claim will ensure the injured children and/or driver(s) 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.
