My son was injured while walking to a school bus stop because the stop is in a dangerous location. Who is responsible?

It is possible that the school district and school board are liable in this matter if they failed to provide a safe school bus stop. It is important that school buses stop in safe locations so that children aren’t put at risk and suffer needless injuries.

On the other hand, if your child was injured as a pedestrian by a driver, it is possible the driver was negligent and is to blame. Sometimes drivers are texting, eating, talking on their cell phones or distracted in another way at the wheel that they fail to see small children crossing the street. Also, if a driver ran a stop sign or was speeding, the driver would be to blame.
