Q: My son almost got hit by a bus yesterday. The bus has not been following safety rules for awhile. What can I do legally?

For months the bus driver has been allowing the kids to cross right in front of the bus. Yesterday the bus driver drove off right as my son was starting to cross and other kids were still in the street. My son is young and is now scared of crossing the street.

You could additionally post this in the Criminal Law section. Criminal law attorneys would be able to provide more meaningful input on the issues mentioned here than personal injury attorneys would.

Hi,

First off, let me say I am sorry for the situation. This can be extremely frustrating especially if there is sentimental value attached to the item.
