There Is a Right Way to Load Passengers Onto a Group Home Bus
There are clear regulations regarding properly loading and restraining group home residents on a bus. Passengers in wheelchairs must be securely restrained to prevent rolling during movement or sudden stops. Ambulatory passengers must enter and exit the vehicle under close supervision and must be restrained at all times during transport. Every year, thousands of group home residents are injured during transportation to and from their place of employment or on group outings.

Our law firm offers a free consultation to discuss the evidence in your case. If we accept your case, we will immediately investigate the accident and injury.
If we determine that management policies or group home staff members share liability for the injuries, we will fight aggressively to recover maximum money damages for medical care, emotional distress and punitive damages. Unfortunately, it often takes a significant settlement or jury award to force group home owners and managers to adequately safeguard residents.
