When you or your loved ones take public transit to travel around, you expect to get to where you’re going in a safe and reasonable manner. The sad, unfortunate truth is that bus accidents occur all too frequently. Bus drivers sometimes fail to operate the buses with the appropriate degree of care required by law.
Whether you are a passenger on a bus, a pedestrian struck by a bus, or a vehicle involved in a collision with a bus, bus accidents can cause serious injuries to those involved, including whiplash, broken bones, cuts and bruises, and internal organ damage. If a city, county, or state owned/operated bus caused your injuries, you must file a claim with the appropriate governmental entity within the time frame specified in the California Government Code or else may be barred from asserting any claim at all.
Don’t let the window of opportunity for compensation close. Act now. If you or a loved one has been in a bus accident, request a free consultation using the contact form on this page to discuss your legal rights and options.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss your legal options and to handle your needs compassionately and appropriately.
