Bus Accident Lawyer with 15+ Years Experience

Injured on a bus or public transportation?

Taking the bus is a great way to be more economical and environmentally minded. Public bus systems are typically very reliable and safe. Unfortunately, when there is an accident involving a bus, there are often much more serious injuries involved. Thousands of people are injured each year in bus accidents. When a bus collides with another vehicle or object, passengers can suffer life-altering results. Due to the fact that public transportation does not normally provide seatbelts or safety restraints, bus accidents can be very dangerous. When buses are overly crowded, many passengers are forced to hold onto the rails while standing up. In the event of a collision, passengers may fly forward, sideways or backwards, causing serious and painful injuries. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics reports 69,000 bus accidents in 2014 so this is not as uncommon as one may think.

If you have been injured during a bus accident, Ghozland Law Firm is ready to fight for the compensation you deserve. We will do everything we can to recover the damages you need to cover all of your medical expenses and therapy costs.

Who is liable in a bus accident?

Similar to truck accidents, determining who is liable for your injuries after a bus accident may be difficult. In order to recover compensation, you must prove fault of another party. Some possible at-fault parties include the following:

  • Bus driver
  • Outside driver
  • Highway defect
  • Negligent Pedestrian

 

  • Bus manufacturer
  • Negligent mechanic
  • Bus company or owner

If the bus driver was acting irrationally or not paying attention to the road, a claim may be brought against them. In many cases, bus drivers find it difficult to maintain focus in a crowded bus. The vehicle can be challenging to maneuver, especially if there was a mechanical malfunction of defect. The manufacturer or inspector could be held liable for the accident and your injuries. A lawsuit may even be brought against the management that owns the bus company for lack of training or safety regulations. If it is a city or government owned bus system, you need to ensure that you retain strong legal counsel. In order to ensure that you receive the highest amount of compensation available, seek legal support from your go-to resource bus accident attorney in Los Angeles and surrounding areas.
