Who is liable for bus accident injuries?

After a serious bus accident, multiple investigations are usually conducted to determine liability. These may include police investigations, insurance company investigations, internal bus company investigations, and investigations conducted by traffic safety boards. Different laws and regulations apply to different types of buses. For example, commercial interstate carriers, such as Greyhound, are subject to different regulations than government entities responsible for Metro buses. Churches and private buses fall under a different set of guidelines.
