[ 1 ] First the negligence has to be proved as to who is at fault.

secondly the insurence company will pay the amount for the dameges as the bus is insured with some insurence company.

So thereafore , the employee is not liable to pay the damages.

[ 2 ] If the lawyer is on the pay roll as an employee, then he is liable to penalised.Otherwise , if he is rendering services as an independent and not on the pay rolls, issue a notice to him and make good the loss occured to the company otherwise will face the complaint in the consumer court deficiency of service.
