If my child's school bus driver got distracted and got in an accident, can I sue?

Yes. If your child has injuries and it can be shown the bus driver was negligent and was distracted, you could have legal recourse. School bus drivers can be distracted by cell phones, something outside the bus, and children horsing around in the passenger compartment. But the bus driver has a high duty of care in his or her job and must drive safely at all times. If they fail in that duty, they could be held liable for your child's injuries.
