School Bus Crash in Jefferson County, Kentucky (KY) Injures Students

What Happened

A normal trip to school for forty eight Jefferson County, Kentucky (KY) students quickly became a frightening event when their school bus wrecked into a ditch.  The cause of the accident is uncertain at this time; weather may have been a contributing factor. The accident occurred at U.S. 42 and Lime Kiln Lane. Eighteen children were transported to local hospitals.  According to a doctor of Kosair Children’s Hospital some of the children were thrown across the bus landing on each other, or landing on parts of the bus.

The Virginia Personal Injury Lawyers’ Perspective

As a parent myself I know that anytime your child is injured it is serious.  As a Virginia (VA) personal injury attorney I know that being prepared to handle this situation will help ensure you and your family receive proper compensation to help cover any large medical bills, any permanent scarring or brain damage to your child. Child injuries are different than adult injuries.  Our firm is experienced with the legal process for filing a personal injury claim for a minor and has settled hundreds of car accident injury cases.
