Bus drivers have a huge amount of responsibility when operating a bus in the state of California. While they face more challenges than the average motor vehicle driver, they also require a special license to operate a bus. This license is supposed to prove that they can safely operate a bus. Even then, accidents can happen. Additionally, because most buses don’t have seatbelts, other safety issues can arise. If you or a loved one have been involved in a bus accident and have been injured, then you’re entitled to compensation for your injuries.
