People need to know there is a pretty vast difference between accidents with commercial vehicles like delivery trucks or 18-wheelers, and accidents with government vehicles like mail trucks or school buses. Considering the government set up the rules of how people can file claims, it really shouldn’t surprise anybody that the rules operate a little differently, and a little more in their favor. If the bus in this accident is found to be at fault, then moving quickly would be the first thing I’d keep in mind. Sometimes the statues of limitations with claims against government vehicles are cut down to 25% of what they would normally be with any other accident, in addition to a number of other hurdles and hoops. These obstacles are by no means impossible to navigate, but it does take a bit of experience.
