        In general, school buses are the safest vehicles for children to ride in to class, because of both their size and safety features. In fact, most of the people who die in school-bus crashes are drivers and passengers in other vehicles. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that approximately 19 children die in these accidents every year.

        Many more suffer injuries. CBS Chicago reports that a public school-bus driver accidentally struck a metal beam while making a turn. The accident quickly became bizarre when the driver neglected to stop the bus or even call for emergency assistance.

        Importance of Expert Witnesses

        Expert witnesses are essential in many personal injury cases.  When an issue or dispute is considered too complex for the ordinary juror to understand without the assistance of an expert, Illinois law requires that an expert witness be called to explain the complexities and provide opinions to the jury. If the plaintiff doesn’t call an expert witness to testify regarding such issues, then the court will generally not permit the plaintiff from placing such issues before the jury.  If the issue is essential to winning the case and plaintiff doesn’t call an expert, then the case will be lost.

        President-elect Barack Obama inspired a nation to act as one voice; to collectively gather on the ground and in cyberspace so that the ultimate promise of a new direction became more than political rhetoric.  A new and undeniable mandate by an engaged people was born; a collective movement, which can and should be used to create change at the state level regarding the out-of-control insurance industry.

        The issues hurting Illinois consumers — who are required by law to maintain insurance coverage for personal property liability — are two fold; expensive, unregulated premiums and delay in payment tactics that await them when a claim is submitted.
