3 Injured in Casper, WY, School Bus Accident on Wyoming Boulevard

Casper, WY -- May 16, 2019, three people were injured due to an accident where an SUV and a school bus crashed along Wyoming Boulevard.

According to details released by the Casper Police Department, the crash happened at around 3:30 p.m. at the intersection of Wyoming Boulevard and Casper Mountain Road.

In their reports, police officials said that a red SUV and a school bus somehow crossed paths at the intersection, resulting in a near head-on collision.

Emergency services transported three people from the SUV to a local hospital with injuries of unspecified severity. No one on the bus appeared to be injured.

At this time, the exact cause of the crash remains unclear.

Commentary

Since this appears to be a controlled intersection, it's likely that someone failed to yield and caused the crash. If the Jeep caused the crash, there likely wouldn't be any unique remedies beyond your typical car crash. If the bus driver did something wrong, that makes things far more complex.

To put it simply, filing claims against government entities is challenging without the rights tools and legal experience. Government agencies are not going to come out and accept responsibility for a crash without any push-back. On top of that, many places have laws to make things even more challenging. One of the most challenging hurdles to overcome is the Notice Requirement. This puts a time limit on how long victims and families have to notify the government of their intent to file a claim. In some places it's as long as a year, in others it's as short as 45 days, and it varies from state to state, county to county, and city to city.

So while it's not clear who caused this crash, it's possible that the situation is incredibly complex due to the unique laws surrounding these kinds of accidents. It's important for those affected to seek out allies experienced with these legal intricacies so they can navigate them appropriately.
