LIABILITY IN BUS ACCIDENTS
Bus drivers have a responsibility to operate their vehicle in a reasonably safe manner and to make sure that passengers safely exit the bus. When a bus driver fails to make sure that passengers get off a bus safely and this leads to an accident, the bus driver’s employer may be vicariously liable. The family of a victim may be able to file a claim for damages.
