What Happens When Your Child's Daycare Bus is In an Accident?
Daycare Bus Involved in Automobile Crash in Albany, GA
Five people, including three children, were injured when a man collided with the Childcare Network daycare bus at Walnut Street and Highland Avenue. According to reports by the Georgia State Patrol, the driver of a 2003 White Chevrolet Tahoe, Michael Brown, ran a stop sign before crashing into the daycare bus.
According to police, Brown then fled the scene of the accident. Reportedly, he had no license, had violated his parole, and had active warrants for obstruction. Police proceeded to investigate the accident and a manhunt began for Brown.
Who Will Be Liable for Injuries in a Daycare Bus Accident?
In order to answer this question, you need an experienced Atlanta daycare accident attorney. If your child is injured in a daycare bus accident, the bus driver; daycare; or another driver may be at fault. In the case above, it appears that Michael Brown ran a stop sign and collided with the bus. Therefore, he would likely be liable for any damages. However, in the event that he is uninsured the question of liability becomes more complex.
Hiring a personal injury attorney who practices in both automobile accident law and daycare injury law can be extremely helpful in sorting out which laws apply and how to proceed in collecting damages. Although it appears that the driver at-fault may not have automobile insurance coverage, the victims may still be able to collect compensation for their damages. An experienced personal injury attorney can take on such a challenge.
