South Florida car accident lawyer David I. Fuchs has over 20 years of experience in successfully representing school bus accident victims, their families and friends who have suffered a death in the family or sustained serious bodily injuries because of the negligence of the driver of a school bus or another party in Fort Lauderdale.
Children are society’s future and getting them safely to and from their institutions of learning is a primary concern for parents and guardians across the country. Over 400,000 yellow school buses are responsible for transporting over 20 million students to and from school, field trips, and school related activities.
School buses are proven to be the safest vehicles to transport children when factoring in the great many trips that are taken to and from school per year. Unfortunately, however, accidents may occur. Accidents involving school buses have an average death rate of 26 children yearly. Compared to other statistics, this may seem small. However, over 800 students are killed each year walking, riding, or driving to or from school.
School bus drivers are typically much more prudent drivers. They take caution rather than risks and travel at slower speeds than a typical passenger vehicle. School buses are also bigger and well made. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a school bus crash is a crash which involves, either directly or indirectly, a school bus body vehicle, or a non-school bus functioning as a school bus, transporting children to or from school or school-related activities.
Although it is unlikely that a school bus accident will occur, they can still be devastating when they do. Because children are often moving about and not wearing seat belts, there have been issues in the past with children being injured en route to school or their home. For this reason, advocates for school safety are pushing for a redesign of yellow school buses which include seat belts.
In certain states, safety precautions are instituted requiring motor to prevent pedestrians and non-bus occupants from being injured in a school bus accident, states have instituted safety precautions that must betaken by drivers in the vicinity of school buses.
In the unfortunate event that a school bus accident in Fort Lauderdale occurs, it is important to find an injury attorney who specializes with this type of case. Fault and injury are difficult factors to ascertain and negligent parties may never be brought to justice if the damage is not properly assessed.

There are not a lot of attorneys I can do that with! If you have any Personal Injuries please do call him. You won't be disappointed!!"

I wanted to alert others that Mr Fuchs is the consummate professional and Attorney. I was referred to him by a friend as I required an experienced Attorney who knows the laws in Florida and is willing to fight aggressively for the injured party. He was extremely knowledgeable and patient and answered all of my questions and concerns. Unlike another Attorney in the area who didn't think much of my case and wasn't responsive, he rolled up his sleeves and triumphantly steered the defendant toward a settlement we both desired from the outset. I'd recommend him to any individual that also was injured or sustained damages and requires the expertise that Mr Fuchs can offer.
