Reckless Driving Near Schools
Morning and afternoon rush hours are some of the most stressful times for anyone to be out on the road, with the enormous numbers of people commuting between work, school, and home. When drivers become aggravated by congested traffic conditions and other delays and begin to make aggressive maneuvers, they put everyone around them at risk of an accident and injury, which is particularly dangerous near school zones and school buses.
If the recklessness of a driver has caused injury to your child around a school bus or in a school zone, you likely have a right to seek compensation for the injuries and losses caused by their negligence. To learn more about your legal options and how to seek justice for your family, call our experienced Appleton car accident attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874.
Causes of Accidents
Driving in the vicinity of children, be it a school bus stop or an actual school zone, requires a higher level of caution and care than most other situations in order to ensure the safety of young people. The following types of driving behavior may put your children at risk:
- Excessive speed in violation of posted limits
- Unsafe passing of school buses
- Failure to yield to pedestrians
- Ignoring crosswalks
Children can be especially vulnerable to serious injury in a car accident due to their diminutive stature and typically decreased awareness in these kinds of situations.
At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C., we strive to help all victims of personal injury recover the full compensation they may be owed following an accident caused by the negligence of another party. If your child has been injured as a pedestrian in a school zone or near their school bus, call an experienced Appleton auto accident lawyer today at 800-242-2874 for a free consultation to discuss the details of your case.
