Bus Accident

As a general rule, don't expect bus accidents to happen when riding the LA Metro or any other bus. However, each year hundreds of victims are hospitalized as a result of bus accidents.
The City of Los Angeles or private bus companies may be held liable for compensating victims after a bus-related accident. If you've recently been in a bus accident in LA, Ask THE SANN LAW GROUP for a free consultation. We can help you recover.

How much compensation can I get for a bus accident?

We understand that no amount of compensation is sufficient to cover serious or life-threatening injuries from a bus accident. However, if an accident could have been prevented, filing a lawsuit and seeking compensation may hold the negligent party accountable. We believe that some degree of justice will be served to you and your family after this traumatic event. A lawsuit may also push for institutional-level safety changes for a safer transportation culture in your city, such as LA County reassessing bus and driver safety.

Our attorneys have also seen firsthand how an impartial settlement or judgment can quickly improve a family's overall ability to recover after a fatal accident. Receiving reasonable compensation may pay for medical needs in the distant future. If you get into an accident with the bus directly without being on the bus, you can claim the cost of repairing the vehicle. Other compensatory losses in a bus accident case may include lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, consortium losses, wrongful death damages, and punitive damages.

There is no such thing as an average bus accident settlement in California. The value of each case is carefully determined based on unique factors such as the severity of the victim's injuries. You can usually expect a higher value case if you've been diagnosed with fatal injuries or if a loved one died in a bus accident in LA. However, how much a bus accident case is worth should be discussed with an attorney before accepting an insurance settlement.

If you are injured in a bus accident, you or your attorney must determine the cause of the crash. As a driver of another vehicle, in order to obtain compensation from an insurance company, you must prove that the bus driver or company was responsible for the accident. As a passenger, you generally do not have to prove negligence to obtain compensation from the bus company's insurance carrier. However, if you are entitled to a third party lawsuit, such as a claim against a bus manufacturer, knowing the cause of the accident can be helpful.

● Human error. A bus driver's distraction or carelessness can lead to a collision between the bus and another vehicle or stationary object. Examples include texting and driving, other forms of distracted driving, bus driver fatigue, drunk driving, speeding, traffic violations, and reckless driving.
● Bus company negligence. Other acts of negligence, such as not maintaining the bus or improperly training the bus driver, can also contribute to bus accidents. Bus companies or public transportation agencies are responsible for ensuring the reasonable safety of vehicles and drivers. To fall short of this duty is negligence.
● road conditions. Buses can crash when encountering hazardous road conditions such as potholes, hazardous construction areas, bumpy shoulders or pavement, malfunctioning traffic lights, missing guardrails, and storm debris that cause loss of vehicle control.

Depending on the circumstances, one or more parties may be financially liable for a bus accident in Los Angeles. In California, the person or party most liable for a car accident is the person paying for the victim's losses. Determining the primary cause of an accident is one of the first steps towards obtaining compensation.

If you are injured in a bus accident, tell your story to the police officer who arrives at the scene. Write down a description of the accident while the details are still fresh in your mind, including the date, time, location and bus number. Before leaving the site, take photos and videos for your personal records. Then seek medical attention for your injuries without delay. Before accepting a settlement with an insurance company, get a free consultation with an LA bus accident attorney and get the best possible compensation.

At The Sann law group attorney's office, we do our best to get the best compensation.
