Across the U.S., buses provide an integral link in our public and private transportation chains. Transit, cross-country and intercity buses carry commuters and other travelers on both short and long trips every day. The government’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reports more than 840,000 registered buses in our country. Each year, those vehicles are involved in an average of nearly 5,000 crashes per month. In 2009, those accidents left some 20,000 people injured, while more than 200 lost their lives.

Helping victims in Boca Raton and surrounding cities, bus accident attorney Gregg M. Hollander and his staff are especially aware of the distress that any injury to a child can cause.

Our country’s school buses carry an estimated 24 million or more children to and from schools and school events every day. From vehicle manufacturers to drivers to school administrators, everyone involved in transporting school children has a role to play in their safety.
When accidents happen – as some 10 fatal school bus crashes per year do in Florida – the Hollander Law Firm has access to a full range of professionals who can help examine the circumstances of a crash: investigators, medical and legal personnel, researchers and others who work as a team to ensure that your child has the kind of unwavering support needed to secure financial compensation for his or her injuries.
Boca Raton bus accident attorney Gregg M. Hollander and his staff know that serious physical injuries can also inflict emotional pain. Victims of crashes involving transit or other commercial buses may be thrown from their seats when an impact occurs. That can mean broken bones or internal injuries. It may mean traumatic head wounds that result in brain damage and permanent impairment.
When children aboard a school bus are involved in a crash, they, too, can be thrown about the vehicle or even ejected from it. A bus may be in danger of overturning, meaning children may be tossed from their seats. In some cases, children are hurt when they fall from a bus door or window.
