The attorneys explain that back-to-school time is exciting for both children and parents, but driver complacency on the road can be dangerous. Parents are encouraged to read the new guide to discover the latest accident statistics and learn methods for improving safety during busy traffic periods.

Console and Associates P.C. explains that many school bus accidents occur from illegal passing when negligent drivers pass a stopped school bus while children are entering or exiting.

In their new guide, three important tips are provided to ensure that all drivers are following the law during busy back-to-school periods.

The guide’s fundamental safety tips include facing forward in the bus seat, and always ensuring that the driver’s instructions are followed. It further adds that when school buses approach the curb, children should stand back and wait for the driver to pull open the doors and tell them when it’s safe to enter. Finally, once the children are getting off the bus, they are urged to be aware of oncoming cars and to step away from the bus as it leaves.

Data from the National Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) highlights that teens are the largest age group getting distracted at the time of an accident. For this reason, the guide encourages parents to discuss best practices and safety strategies with their older children.

A spokesperson for the law firm states: “In the aftermath of child injury that results from the simple act of taking the school bus, it can be hard to know where to turn for help. Often the financial burden of medical care and lost wages due to caring for an injured child can become too much to handle. Unfortunately, insurance settlement offers can fall short of the true cost of recovery. Our bus crash lawyers are on your side and will handle every aspect of your claim so that you can focus on what matters most – your child’s health and recovery.”
