Southern California Bus Accident Trial Lawyers
The personal injury attorneys of AlderLaw, a plaintiffs law firm based in the Los Angeles area, have extensive experience in litigating bus accidents. When we cannot settle a case involving a bus or mass transit accident, we have the resources and legal talent to take your case to court.
It is important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible after being involved in a bus accident. Without an attorney to represent you, an insurance company may try to settle your case with you quickly - but for significantly less money that a skilled personal injury lawyer can get. They may also attempt to contact you and try to get information from you to build a case against you.
Insurance Companies Are Not on Your Side
Insurance companies and lawyers for defendants in accident cases are not your friends or advocate and they do not can cannot by law represent your best interests. They will never try to get to any facts other than those that will support their own position.
We invite you to contact our law firm today for a free initial consultation and case evaluation. We work on a contingency basis which means you pay us when we settle or win your case for you.
California Bus Accident Settlements and Verdicts
Our Southern California trial lawyers have a solid track record of obtaining multiple large settlements for bus accident victims, including cases against the Los Angeles MTA, Foothill Transit, Antelope Valley Transit and the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus Line.
Although each bus accident case is different, the majority of settlements we have reached for clients injured in bus accidents exceeded one million dollars.
Accidents Caused by Bus Driver Negligence
When a bus runs over an individual or causes an accident, the plaintiff's injuries (victim's injuries) are usually severe; however, the defendant typically refuses to accept responsibility for the negligence of their drivers or their own negligence in failing to properly train the driver.
Our personal injury accident attorneys have found that most bus companies and city bus lines cut corners. For example, they poorly train their drivers and do not follow their own rules and procedures to save on internal costs. They may even allow bus drivers who have been disciplined for bad driving in the past to continue to drive after they have been found to be an inadequate driver. Most of these companies attempt to hide their actions behind multiple levels of bureaucracy and lawyers.
Our Bus Accident Attorneys Know the Law and Bus Regulations and Procedures
Our accident lawyers know the ins and outs of proper bus driver training and procedure. Our knowledge and experience with laws and regulations for bus drivers is critical to uncovering the truth about the bussing company and its drivers.
AlderLaw has compiled a library of bus driver manuals, training manuals and videos and also maintains a collection of depositions of bus company managers from previous cases we have handled. Drawing upon years of field experience and our wealth of information, AlderLaw attorneys can effectively cross-examine nearly any type of witness in a bus accident case.
