Legal Question in Legal Ethics in Virginia

My son 9 year old son was riding the school bus home. He was sitting down wearing his seat belt. He was not doing anything wrong. The bus must have gone over a huge bump or something and that caused his leg to fracture. His tibia and fibula are fractured.He is in a thigh high cast and doesn't have much mobility. Can we sue the bus garage for this, since it was not his fault?
