Children from a school in Kincardineshire who were injured in a bus accident will sue the operating company for damages.
The young pupils required treatment in hospital after suffering serious injuries in the crash which happened in October 2010.
It is understood that they will each seek a five-figure payout for the injuries they sustained.
A total of fifty pupils were on the bus on their way home from Mearns Academy when their double-decker bus toppled in to a field at the side of the road in Garvock Hill.
The three children were taken to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for treatment.
A legal representative for the children confirmed they would now seek damages for the accident:
“Initial court action has been raised in the Court of Session.
“All three will be seeking compensation for injuries caused by the crash.”
Since the accident, the bus provider has agreed to only use single decker busses.
All pupils are now instructed to wear seatbelts and bus staff are made aware of severe weather warnings before travelling.
Recently been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault? The good news is that you could be entitled to compensation.
