As you could well imagine, because of their large size and capacity, school buses are the largest type of mass transportation for children in the U.S. and certainly in Norwalk, Connecticut.  Approximately 500,000 school buses carry students back and forth from school. Many students are also transported by bus to after school activities every school day.

According to a 2002 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report, there are over 144 school bus accidents that year and almost 10,000 children are injured in school bus accidents every year. Every year an estimated 20 school children die in a bus related accidents.

These alarming statistic indicate that approximately 46% of school bus occupants were injured or hurt, 8% were school bus drivers, 38% were occupants of other vehicles and less than 1% were pedestrians, cyclists or non-motorists.

If your child has been injured in a Norwalk School Bus Accident or has had some other type of child injury which was caused by the fault of another, you need to be aware that there are time limitations for acting on your child's injury case.  If you miss the deadline for filing your child's case, you will not be able to collect money damages for your child no matter how serious the injuries.
