After a bus accident, you’re probably going to receive a phone call from an insurance company, or from somebody representing the bus company, or city, if it’s a city bus. The first thing they’re going to want to do is talk to you and ask you questions that make it sound like it was your fault, not theirs. Those questions don’t have any good answers and they know it. They’re trained to ask you questions that make it seem like it was your fault. We tell people all the time, don’t talk to them.
