Liability and Responsibility for School Zone Accidents

During the academic year, school zones with reduced speeds, crossing guards, and signs are created to protect children on their way to class. However, many dangers persist, including (but certainly not limited to):undefined

  • Speeding drivers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Drivers who experience vehicle malfunctions
  • Drowsy drivers
  • Lack of visibility of signs indicating reduced speed, children crossing the street, etc.
  • Negligent school bus drivers

In accidents involving drivers and motor vehicles, there is almost always some instance of negligence that contributes to the injuries, suffering, and deaths that result. Sometimes careless drivers can be held responsible for the effects of their inattention or reckless behavior behind the wheel, especially if their actions (or failure to act appropriately) directly cause the suffering and financial loss of another person or family.

If an accident occurs due to a vehicle malfunction of some sort, it may be the result of an error in the design, maintenance, or manufacturing of the car in question. In such cases, the manufacturer may be held liable for the resulting damages and harm and forced to adequately compensate the injured person.

How a Personal Injury Attorney Can Help

Regardless of how a school zone accident happens, getting in touch with an experienced personal injury attorney is always a good move. A personal injury attorney can help you establish liability and make a strong case for fair compensation on your behalf. This can help you avoid absorbing the personal and financial costs of someone else’s irresponsible behavior, and it can allow you and your loved ones the financial freedom to afford medical treatment, funeral costs, and other expenses that you may incur following a school zone accident.
