Litigation Type - Bus Accidents
Client Injury - Physical Injuries and Emotional Stress
Our client was a school bus driver who was involved in a very tragic accident. A 16 year old boy lost control of his vehicle and crossed into the bus's lane of traffic. After first hitting a pick-up truck, the boy's vehicle was directly in front of our client's school bus and he had no option to avoid the collision. As a result, the school bus broadsided the boy's vehicle. The 16 year old driver was killed in the accident and his 15 year old brother was severely injured.
Our client has suffered both physically from his injuries and emotionally from the idea that the 16 year old was killed in this collision. He testified that there were a few occasions when he had returned to work that he would stop his route and break down crying because of this incident.
Paul Downes was able to settle his case for $145,000.
