$1.055 million settlement for a 16 year-old student who was injured while crossing a roadway to board his school bus. When crossing the two lane road in a rural area near his home, an oncoming truck failed to stop his pick-up truck or yield to the stopped school bus which had its red, flashing stop-arm extended. The driver of the pick-up struck the teenager. Our client suffered a severely broken leg, which required multiple surgeries, as well as kidney injuries. During the course of treatment for his injuries, he missed several weeks of school for his treatment and rehabilitation. Medical expenses totaled over $300,000.00. A portion of this settlement was also recovered from the school system who designed the bus route to have this child crossing this roadway. It was also discovered that another student had been injured few years prior from crossing a busy roadway to board a bus. They have since changed all bus routes to ensure a higher level of safety for the school children.
