Bus Accidents - Who is Responsible?
Do you ride public transportation? Have you ever taken a private charter bus for a big shopping trip or sports event? Do your kids take the bus to school? If the answer is yes to any of those questions then you know commuting in a large vehicle is a lot different than riding in a car. Not only are buses bigger but safety standards and precautions are different as well. For instance many buses including school buses don't have seat belts. Only the driver of the bus is required by law to wear his or her seat belt.
And if you notice they are not ask them to put it on. It keeps them and the passengers safer. That's because when a bus accident happens passengers can easily be tossed around and their injuries are often more serious than they are in a typical passenger vehicle. And don't forget responsibility for the collision can include parties beyond the bus driver.
