Los Angeles Bus Accident Attorneys

Accidents on the road between bus and car, bus and truck, bus and motorcycle and bus and pedestrian are common occurences. Due to the size, nature and length of the bus, bus drivers risk hitting a vehicle or person in their blind spot. Increasingly, bus accidents occur as a result of head on collisions and rear end collisions, reckless drivers, intersection accidents, rollovers and more.

While bus drivers are becoming more cautious, accidents involving buses still result in severe injuries. Roughly 24,000 people are injured by a bus accident every year. The types of injuries sustained as either a passenger or driver of the bus can range from minor to devastatingly permanent injuries. Life-altering injuries that can result if the bus flips over include paralysis, broken bones, amputations, lacerations, orthopedic injuries and spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord damage in a bus accident can inhibit an injured victim by limiting their control over movement and resulting mobility.

If you or a loved one was injured in a bus accident and the accident was not caused by you, you may be entitled to financial compensation as a result of the driver's or third-party's negligence.

Common Types Of Bus Accident Questions

The following are typical questions relating to bus accidents:

  • What Happens After I Have Been Injured in a Bus Accident?

    Be sure to seek medical attention immediately. This will allow you to verify any injuries you have received. The longer you wait to document the occurrence and contact a lawyer, the less viable your case may be in court. In addition, it is important to obtain a police report and or incident report from the bus driver in order to clarify liability.

    Before giving a statement to an insurance company or the bus company, you should contact an attorney. It is usually also wise to refrain from signing a medical release or authorization form before contacting a lawyer. The attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers have experience with Bus Accident insurance claims, and can help you receive the settlement or verdict you deserve.

  • Do I Need a Lawyer If I Have Insurance?

    Bus Accidents can be more complex than other types of vehicle collisions because of insurance concerns. Many busing companies in California are governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, and the California Department of Motor Vehicles which require buses to have varying amounts of insurance.

    You may receive a soft tissue or catastrophic injury from a Bus Accident, limiting your ability to support yourself and your family. In such a case, a busing company may argue liability and make claim you should foot the bill. You need a lawyer who can get you the full coverage you need.
