6 People Injured in North Port School Bus Accident

Six people were injured in an accident involving a car and a school bus in North Port, Florida on November 15

According to the North Port Police, the accident occurred at the intersection of Cranberry and Toledo Blade boulevards. There were about 20 students on board the bus, which was taking students to North Port High School. Both drivers were among those injured. Several of the southbound lanes of Toledo Blade Boulevard had to be temporarily blocked off until the accident site was cleared.

Fortunately, none of the injuries appeared to be serious. Law enforcement officials did not release any information about how the accident occurred or who was at fault. However, the Sarasota County School District was notified of the crash and contacted parents immediately.

Determining the liable party after a bus accident

When an accident involves a bus, it’s not always clear who should be held liable for any injuries or property damage that occurred. Even if the bus driver caused the accident, victims will likely seek compensation from the driver’s employer, which may be a private company or public agency. This is due to the legal principle of vicarious liability, which states that the actions of an employee are the same as those of his or her employer.

Because of the large size and weight of the average bus, these types of crashes tend to be quite serious in nature. If you would like to explore your legal options after a bus accident in Florida, speak with an experienced Bradenton personal injury lawyer at Shapiro, Goldman, Babboni & Walsh.
