Woman files lawsuit after son injured in car accident

The negligence of one person can have a ripple effect, resulting in adverse consequences for a number of people. One person not paying attention to what he or she is doing while driving can lead to permanent injury, death and even lawsuits. A Georgia woman has filed a wrongful death lawsuit after her son was seriously injured in a car accident.

Just over two years ago, the woman was turning off a highway into a private driveway when a school bus slammed into the rear of the car behind her, pushing that car into the rear of her vehicle. A report did not detail all of the injuries to the woman's son, only that there were several, including traumatic injury to his brain. There was also no mention of the child's present mental and physical condition.

The attorney the woman retained has requested a jury trial to determine damages for all medical expenses the boy has incurred in the past and a projection of what he will incur in the future, loss of income and pain and suffering. The lawsuit has not only been filed against the bus driver but also against the driver of the car that was behind her and the school district. The suit claims the school district did not make every effort to ensure the driver was properly trained while in their employment.

The negligence of this bus driver caused years of consternation and heartache for one family. Georgia residents who have found themselves in a similar position after a car accident may not know how to take the next step in seeking restitution for the emotional and physical pain suffered. An experienced attorney will be able to work with a client to formulate a legal plan of action in the pursuit of a judgment for monetary damages.
