        Mr. Ranzenhofer and his attorneys were great! My case was handled quickly and I got a great result – $300,000. I fell at my doctor’s office, so I knew it was a hard case. Mr. Ranzenhofer developed a strategy that got me a great result. I highly recommend Mr. Ranzenhofer and his team of attorneys.

        Question:

        If my child was injured on a school bus, can I sue the school?

        Answer:

        Generally, if your child has been injured in a school bus accident, it really depends on the school district in which you and your child live. You have the Buffalo city schools, you have the Rochester city schools, you have the suburban school districts, and then you have private schools. What you really have to look at is how that school district manages their transportation. Do they own their own buses, or do they contract out? Do they have their own drivers, or do they contract out? Those are the determining factors which will decide how that case is pursued.

        It’s very important to give notice within 90 days because you could be dealing with a municipality, like a city. If you miss that deadline, you could be out of luck. Any rights you have for your child or for yourself, when that child has been injured on a school bus, may go right out the window. It’s very important to see us right away. We have a lot of experience in these types of cases. You want to make sure that your rights are protected and make sure that any claim that’s going to be filed is done so in a timely fashion.

        The second thing is you have to make sure that we investigate properly to make sure that we can determine who owns the school bus and who the driver of that school bus was. Sometimes, it’s a municipality; other times, it’s some sort of private enterprise, and you need to be able to make that determination that you are pursuing the right person in making your claim.
