Common Causes of Bus Accidents

Although buses and public transportation are often hailed as safer than cars, thousands of people are still injured in bus accidents — and hundreds are killed — every single year in the United States, according to a study from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI). With many people using buses as their primary form of transportation, especially school-aged students, bus accidents pose a huge risk to our communities. Fortunately, if you or a family member sustained injuries in a bus crash, our Los Angeles lawyers can help.

We have handled accident claims concerning the following types of buses:

  • Casino buses
  • City buses
  • Charter buses
  • School buses
  • Tour buses

In fact, we have taken on some of the largest bus manufacturers and operators in the nation, such as Ford Motor Company, Greyhound, and Blue Bird Corporation. In complex litigation against major bus companies and their insurers, you need an experienced accident lawyer who will be able to demonstrate that a crash caused a victim’s injuries, and that the crash was caused by negligence or other issues.

Common examples of negligence resulting in bus accidents include:

How to Choose a Los Angeles Accident Lawyer for Your Claim

In choosing a lawyer, it is vital to give the decision proper consideration, as you are putting your recovery in their hands.

A few categories to consider include the following:

  • Reputation/peer reviews and testimonials: An ideal attorney will have a good reputation, even in the eyes of the opposition. For instance, Wisner Baum is well-respected by peers on both sides of the courtroom.
  • Track record of success: As mentioned, past successes should not be taken as a guarantee, but they do speak to the prowess of the legal team that achieved them. To date, our firm has won billions of dollars in compensatory damages for our clients.
  • Areas of practice: Since a bus accident may have many nuances, especially for cases concerning defective bus design and manufacturing, hiring an attorney with extensive experience in practice areas related to your claim is of the utmost importance. The Los Angeles personal injury attorneys at Wisner Baum have decades of experience handling bus accident lawsuits, trucking claims, and many other related practice areas.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

In California, the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is generally two years from the date of the accident. This means that if you were involved in a bus accident and wish to pursue legal action against the responsible party, you have two years to file a claim seeking compensation.

If, however, you are seeking compensation from a municipal entity (e.g., the local government responsible for operating a public bus involved in your accident), your case will involve significantly different timeframes and procedures. The California Tort Claims Act (CTCA) sets out incredibly short deadlines for filing a claim against a government entity, which is why you should waste no time in contacting a local bus accident lawyer in Los Angeles.

Hire a Trusted Legal Adviser

After an accident, you are legally entitled to pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim for the harm done to you. The Los Angeles lawyers at Wisner Baum are respected leaders in a wide variety of practice areas, including bus accident litigation. Renowned by The Best Lawyers in America©, Super Lawyers®, and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum®, among many others, we know what it takes to win your case.
