While this is the ideal scenario, things took a wrong turn for a school bus in Gaston County, just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina, last January 14, 2015. The school bus crashed as it approached a sharp curve. A total of 50 children were said to be in the bus at the time.
Fortunately, the accident didn’t result in any serious injuries, but 15 kids had to be taken to local hospitals for immediate medical treatment. In incidents such as this, the parents of those kids who had to seek medical attention can hire a reputable Raleigh personal injury lawyer to discuss their legal options. One critical aspect to look into before parents decide to move forward with a civil lawsuit and recover damages for medical expenses is to determine who is at fault.
