As a firm specializing in various areas of personal injury law, including school bus accidents, we at Kaiman & Crahan understand the importance of safety when it comes to school transportation. School buses carry our most precious cargo – our children. Thus, preventing school bus accidents and ensuring the safety of these young passengers is paramount.

The Current State of School Bus Safety

School buses are designed to be safer than passenger vehicles in avoiding crashes and preventing injury. However, accidents still occur. According to the National Safety Council, school buses are involved in over 1,000 accidents annually, leading to a range of injuries and, in some cases, fatalities.


Preventive Measures

Regular Maintenance and Inspection

Ensuring that school buses are in good working condition is crucial. Regular maintenance checks, including brake systems, lights, tires, and other essential parts, can detect issues early and prevent potential accidents.

Driver Training

School bus drivers should undergo rigorous training. This training should not only focus on driving skills but also on emergency procedures, first aid, and managing student behavior.

School Bus Safety Rules for Students

Children need to be educated about the importance of school bus safety both inside and outside the bus. This includes staying seated while the bus is moving, keeping the aisle clear, and understanding the danger zones around the bus.

Technology Use

Technological advancements can play a significant role in preventing school bus accidents. GPS tracking, surveillance cameras, and stop-arm cameras are just a few examples of technology that can enhance school bus safety.


While it’s impossible to prevent all school bus accidents, these measures can significantly reduce the risk. At Kaiman & Crahan, we believe in advocating for safety and holding accountable those responsible for accidents when they do occur. If you or your child has been involved in a school bus accident, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for professional legal advice. We’re here to help protect your rights and ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Stay safe, and let’s work together to make our school buses safer for our children.
