Ben Burgin required restorative surgery on his eye socket and nose following an incident at premises owned by Stagecoach Yorkshire - part of the Stagecoach group that employs 18,000 people nationwide - in Barnsley in September 2009.
Mr Burgin - who was a 17-year-old apprentice at the time - was helping an experienced member of staff fix a braking fault on one of the firm's fleet of buses when its air suspension failed.
This resulted in the 14-tonne vehicle dropping on top of him and seriously injuring his face.
It has since been established that Stagecoach decided to attempt to mend the problem without using a proper inspection pit.
The company has admitted breaching health and safety regulations and Mr Burgin - who has since returned to work - could therefore pursue a claim for compensation against it.
