What to Do When You Are In a School Bus Accident
Getting compensation is not an easy process, especially when dealing with a death, disability, or unknown cause of the accident. Driver negligence is not always conclusive, making it hard for the school to warrant compensation. Insurance companies and labor unions may even delay the launch of investigations and drag out court litigation.
