Whom to suspect?
One of the most common suspects in bus accidents is the driver, whether it’s his fault or not. If the bus is owned by a private company, we can make a claim against the owner. The company could be at fault, because they are hiring incompetent drivers to run the buses. In many situations, when the drivers are not paid well or there are maintenance issues. The blame could also be put upon the maintenance company, employed by the owner, in order to manage the maintenance and safety of their transports. Additional suspects would be the passengers onboard. There could be a passenger, who had distracted the driver, which caused the bus accident.
