Best California Bus Accident Attorney Fights for You

Bus accidents are relatively uncommon, at least as compared to most other motor vehicle accidents. But the injuries sustained by victims in bus accidents also tend to be more severe than most other accidents that occur on our roadways. One reason is that buses don’t necessarily have seat belts, so passengers typically aren’t restrained by a safety device at impact. And if a bus hits a smaller motor vehicle or pedestrian, its size and weight are likely to be a big factor in terms of the injuries suffered by victims. Additional complications can arise in trying to recover compensation for injuries sustained in a California bus accident, as many buses are owned and operated by the local government. So if you have been injured in a bus accident, you need an experienced, motivated  Personal Injury Law Group who can help you pursue financial compensation for your injuries.

As for the types of business accidents we commonly see at  Personal Injury Law Group these include:

  • Single-bus crashes: Typically, the driver loses control of the vehicle, and the bus sometimes rolls onto its side. Passengers are often seriously injured or killed in this type of crash, with the absence of seat belts often a contributing factor.
  • Bus accidents that involve smaller motor vehicles: If an accident involves smaller vehicles, the passengers of those vehicles often sustain serious or catastrophic injuries, due in part to the size and weight of the bus. These individuals may be entitled to compensation if the bus driver’s negligence caused the accident.
  • Pedestrian accidents: A pedestrian accident involving a bus is often a fatal accident. Many times bus vs. pedestrian accidents occur at intersections or crosswalks, when a pedestrian finds him or herself in one of a bus driver’s blind spots, typically at the front or sides of the bus.
We focus on identifying each and every possible negligent party in a given bus accident, and we attempt to reach a fair settlement with the relevant insurance company (or insurance companies). While it can be ad vantageous to avoid a time-consuming, emotionally-draining trial, we are more than willing to take a case to trial to protect a client’s rights and obtain full and fair financial compensation.

And thanks to our extensive experience, we have a good sense of what each client’s case is worth—and what expenses may accrue in the future. In other words, our attorneys can help you obtain compensation for existing hospital bills and medical bills, but also for future expenses. We evaluate each case to help determine whether compensation may be owed for:
  • Future rehabilitation expenses.
  • Costs of modifying a home because of a permanent injury or disability.
  • Home health care costs, including the cost of in-home nurses.
  • Lost earnings.
Frequently Asked Questions About Fort Lauderdale Bus Accidents

FAQ: Can I pursue legal action against a bus that is owned/operated by local government?

Yes, you can still recover compensation for your injuries if you were injured in an accident involving a public bus, though different legal rules apply to public buses. As a general rule, you need to take action quickly, so if you’ve been the victim of a bus accident you should reach out to a Fort Lauderdale bus accidents lawyer as soon as possible after a crash.

FAQ: How much financial compensation will I receive if I’ve been injured in a bus accident?

It depends on the nature and severity of the injuries you sustained—and the losses you can prove. Losses don’t have to be readily quantifiable, though it is easier to prove economic damages like medical bills and lost wages. In many cases, you may also recover for emotional distress, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium, among other things.
