School Bus Accident Attorney in DFW Area
The Arlington & DFW school bus accident attorneys of the Law Offices of David S. Kohm practice almost exclusively in motor vehicle accidents.

We understand the special legal issues when buses are involved. And we will diligently work for you until you get the compensation you deserve.
Unlike car accidents, there are special circumstances surrounding school bus accidents. Normally in the event of a vehicle accident your attorney would help investigate the other driver for fault and pursue a settlement or verdict for compensation against their insurance carrier. However in the cases where the school system is involved, there are often several additional considerations, and determining who is at fault can sometimes be more difficult due to additional factors such as:
- The driver may lack the proper license for driving the bus.
- The driver may not have received proper training or may lack required certifications.
- The driver may not be allowed to drive the bus for legal reasons such as a prior DUI.
- The driver may have been under the influence of drugs and the school may not be testing drivers regularly.
- The driver could have a history of accidents or carelessness which was ignored by the school decision makers.
