During the school year and even summer time, children travel to school in school buses. Many are picked up at a designated Florida school bus stop and dropped off at the same location. Unfortunately and tragically, many Florida children suffer serious personal injuries and death every year while waiting at a school bus stop. It is important for all drivers to slow down any time there are or may be children in a designated area especially at a school bus stop. In Clermont, Florida, it was reported that a boy was hit by a pick up truck while he waited for a school bus in the morning. The boy was later rushed to a local hospital where he died. It was reported in the Miami Herald and other Florida news outlets that the driver did not have a driver’s license and may face other charges related to this horrible automobile / pedestrian accident.
The death of a child is an event that will have a life long impact on the family, neighborhood, school and the community. For more information, see Central Florida Boy Struck and Killed at Bus Stop.
A child injury is a tragic moment in time for a family that often times brings up many legal issues for the family to face. A Florida child injury lawyer can help sort through the confusion and legal / financial challenges of dealing with a child injury.
