However, what many do not consider when they get on a bus is that there are inherent risks. A rider is placing his or her trust in the bus driver and the owner of the fleet. Issues such as inexperience, operating under the influence, recklessness and more can cause a bus crash. Those who are involved in these accidents should be cognizant of the frequency with which they happen and take the necessary steps after the fact to consider a legal filing for compensation.
