As per California law, every school district is responsible for training their drivers and ensuring passengers’ safety. If a school bus gets in an accident anywhere in California, the concerned school district may be held legally responsible. In cases where a bus accident occurs due to another road user’s negligence, an attorney may hold them accountable.
Bus Companies And Their Drivers Can Be held Responsible For Injuries
If a bus accident occurs when the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs – or drives recklessly – the driver and bus company’s management can be held liable for the accident.
If an accident occurred due to a defective or faulty automobile part, the manufacturer could be legally held accountable. However, if the accident occurs due to improper maintenance, the manufacturer will not be at fault. Instead, the law will hold the driver and bus company’s management liable.
Government Entities Can Be Held Accountable By Law Firms For Bus Accidents
State and local governments are responsible for the maintenance of their buses. If an accident involves a local or state-owned bus, the Government may be held liable. An attorney may also hold a government agency responsible for failing to correct road conditions that may put drivers at risk of an accident.

Contact An Experienced Attorney In Case Of A School Bus Accident
Accidents involving school buses are always heart wrenching when innocent children are involved. To prevent such incidents, the state of California has passed specific laws.
For example, school buses leased or purchased after July 1, 2005, must have shoulder and lap restraints – like those installed in the cars and SUVs. These safety measures have been shown to reduce the extent of injuries in a bus-related accident. However, buses leased or purchased before this date are not required to make these alterations. This means children who go to school in older buses are at a considerably higher risk of getting injured in bus accidents than those who travel in newer models.
How Do School Bus Accidents occur ?
Many accidental injuries occur when school children are boarding the bus during a drop-off or a pick-up. Such accidents are more common than school bus accidents that occur while driving. Therefore, drivers must remain vigilant while the school children are boarding or getting off the bus – ensuring that they do not start driving until everyone is aboard and properly seated.
School bus drivers are required to follow certain precautions mandated by the California state law. These include flashing lights whenever buses are stopping to pick up children and stopping at all railroad crossings. Unfortunately, these precautionary guidelines have not been able to prevent school bus-related accidents completely. If your child has suffered injuries and emotional trauma due to a school bus accident, call bus accident attorney Paul E. Maineri right away to discuss your legal options.
