Bus accidents can be more complicated than other motor vehicle crashes. In addition to extra licensing and insurance regulations, claims may be available against both the bus operator and his or her employer. Yet, even if several defendants share responsibility for the negligence, bus accident victims deserve compensation for their injuries. A bus accident attorney can help hold drivers accountable for any breaches in the standard of care and safe driving.
