Long Beach Bus Accident Lawyers

Bus Accidents and Injuries

Taking the bus has become increasingly popular over the past decade. Gas prices, car maintenance, and driver's license issues can all be avoided by taking the bus. Unfortunately, when a bus accident does occur, the magnitude of the bus makes severe and catastrophic injuries far more common. There are many different types of buses currently on the road including: public transportation buses, school buses, tour buses, and party buses.

Some of the most common causes of bus accidents include:

When a pedestrian or motor vehicle driver is hit by a bus, he or she will have little chance of escaping without serious injuries that could last for the rest of his or her life. Buses weigh thousands of pounds and when they are involved in a collision, the result can be disastrous. It is extremely important to speak with a Long Beach personal injury attorney from the firm today if you have been injured in an accident involving a bus.

Who Is Liable in a Bus Accident?

The party held responsible for a bus accident will depend largely on the type of bus involved, and who or what caused the accident.

In a bus accident case any of the following could be found liable for the accident:

  • The bus company or owner
  • The bus driver
  • The bus driver's employer
  • City or company in charge of maintaining the road where the accident happened
  • Bus manufacturers or mechanics

Because bus accidents involve so many variables, it can be confusing to try and manage a case like this on your own. That's where our expert legal team comes in.

How Much Compensation Can You Get from a Bus Accident?

Similar to other personal injury lawsuits, when filing a claim you may be able to obtain compensation for any of the following damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost income
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Punitive damages

The actual amount of compensation you may be eligible for will depend on the severity of your injuries and the type of negligence involved.
