Many different types of accidents can result in personal injury cases. One such type is a bus accident. Bus accidents happen in many different ways. Passengers in a bus can be injured when it is driven in a negligent manner, or other motorists can be injured when their cars are struck by the bus. Regardless of whether you were a passenger in the bus or in your own vehicle, SM Law Group, APC can help you file a lawsuit against the bus company responsible for your injuries. Our Los Angeles bus accident attorneys have recovered millions of dollars and achieved justice on behalf of our deserving clients.
In bus accidents, because the bus driver was an employee of the bus company, your personal injury claim will usually be filed against the company, not the driver individually. Bus companies are responsible for training their employees, screening their employees, maintaining the buses, and keeping their passengers safe. The trajectory of your bus accident lawsuit will be determined by the type of company that owns the bus.
Types of buses include:
In a bus accident, the victims can have serious injuries. Many bus passengers are unrestrained, which can lead to whiplash, head and brain injuries, soft tissue injuries, and broken bones. When a bus strikes a pedestrian or a passenger car, the injuries can be catastrophic due to the size of the bus relative to the car or the human body. In any of these situations, whether the injury is whiplash or a brain injury, the victim has a right to compensation to make up for the impact the accident had on their life. Typically, the more serious injuries are, the more expensive they tend to be to treat.
Our attorneys can help you recover the following damages so you can return to normal life:
