In Michigan, you can sue for 3rd party liability for negligence within 3 years. You obviously waited too long.

In California, once you are age 18, you have two years from the date of the accident to file suit. If the school bus was owned by a public entity, you have to first file a claim, and normally have 6 months to do so being less than 18 does not waive the time limit. So it looks to be too late to sue.

Probably not. Most states have a two year deadline, called a statute of limitations, to file a lawsuit for personal injury. Your accident took place over three years ago. You might be able, however, to press criminal charges.

    The statute of limitations for accidents of the nature you are describing is 4 years, but if you're going to bring a claim against the school board, there is a requirement that you put the school board on notice within 3 years of the accident, and then file suit within 4 years. If you haven't put the school board on notice, then it's too late to bring a claim.
