Bus Driver Settles Worker’s Compensation Claim With School District For $100,000.

The Collier County, Florida School Board has paid $100,000 to settle a worker’s compensation lawsuit over injuries inflicted on a bus driver from a student who punched the driver in his left eye. The settlement was reached in November and the bus Driver, Jonas Francoeur, resigned the following month.

Collier schools spokesman Greg Turchetta said the funds came out of the district’s workers compensation program, a self-insured program with a budget of roughly $1.4 million.  Mr. Francoeur, 57 years-old, began working at the district as a substitute bus driver in 2008 and transitioned to full time in 2013.

If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident while working, you may be entitled to substantial compensation for your pain and suffering, outstanding medical expenses and lost wages.
