School Bus Accidents in Ohio
Even drivers who are tasked with transporting students are at risk of being involved in a serious collision. There were 1,282 people killed in school-transportation-related accidents in the United States from 2007 to 2016. That is an average of 128 deaths happening per year. Of those killed, nearly 9% were occupants of the school bus, and nearly 20% of those killed were non-occupants. There are many factors that contribute to school bus accidents, including poor training and reckless behaviors.
In Ohio, other drivers owe a duty to use reasonable care when operating a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, many drivers in the state breach this duty and cause catastrophic car accidents. The resulting damages following a car accident can impact a victim’s life. The driver responsible for causing an Ohio school bus accident can be held responsible for any resulting injuries.
