What Is The First Thing You Should Do After A School Bus Injury?

If you've been injured in a school bus accident, you should talk to an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. There are a number of things that make a school bus accident different than your typical motor vehicle accident. The main difference is that school districts in Georgia have what's called sovereign immunity. That means you generally cannot sue the school district, but you may have claims against the school bus driver. The amount of insurance the school bus driver has though will vary depending on a number of factors including the amount of insurance the school district has purchased, as well as whether you are seeking compensation for yourself if you were hit by a school bus, or if you were seeking compensation for one of your children who was injured while on a school bus. These cases can be very complicated and there are a number of different procedural hurdles that must be overcome to make sure you get adequate compensation.
