School buses are the largest type of mass transportation for children in the United States. Approximately one half million school buses transport students to and from school and to after school activities every school day. School buses transport tens of millions of students every school day.

According to a 2002 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report, there are over 144 school bus accidents and more than 9,500 children are injured in school bus accidents every year. It has been reported that an average of 21 school children per year die in bus accidents.

Of the people injured in bus accidents each year, approximately 46% were school bus occupants, 8% were school bus drivers, 38% were occupants of other vehicles and less than 1% were pedestrians, cyclists or non-motorists.

You need to be aware that there are time limitations in which you have to file your child's CT school bus accident case. If you miss the time limit for filing your case, you will be precluded from ever collecting any money. Don't run the risk of jeopardizing your right to collect money damages for your child.
