Bus Accidents

Glendale Bus Accident Lawyers

Aggressive & Proven Representation in & Around the Greater Los Angeles Area

Getting into an accident while riding a bus is one of the most frightening things that can happen to a person. Not only are you dealing with the initial trauma of the accident itself, but you also have to worry about how you will get home, how you will get medical care, and how you will pay for all of it. And this is assuming that the accident was not so severe that you were injured in a way that prevents you from returning to work.

When you are riding a bus, you are essentially a passenger in someone else's vehicle. When you step onto a bus, you are trusting that the driver is competent and responsible, that the vehicle is in good condition, and that the bus company is ensuring that all of their drivers are trained and qualified. That is a lot of trust to place in someone else.

Unfortunately, bus accidents do happen, and they can be some of the most catastrophic and devastating accidents that people experience. Bus accidents often leave people with long-term disabilities that drastically change the course of their lives. If you were injured in a bus accident, you need to reach out to an experienced Glendale bus accident lawyer right away. You have limited time to file a claim and get the compensation you deserve. Don't wait to get the help you need.

What Causes Most Bus Accidents?

Bus accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, with driver error often cited as the most common cause. This can include mistakes such as speeding, reckless driving, or making improper turns. Driver fatigue is another significant issue that can lead to accidents.

Other leading causes of bus accidents include:

  • Poor Maintenance: Failing to properly maintain a bus or its equipment can lead to mechanical failures that cause accidents.
  • Negligence: This can take many forms, including negligence on the part of bus companies, other drivers, or even passengers.
  • Distracted Driving: Like any other drivers, bus drivers can become distracted, which can result in accidents. Distractions could come from mobile phones, GPS devices, or interactions with passengers.
  • Improper Training: Bus drivers who have not been adequately trained may lack the skills necessary to handle certain situations, leading to accidents.
  • Speeding: Bus drivers facing delays may be tempted to speed, potentially causing accidents.

It's important to remember that each bus accident is unique and may involve multiple contributing factors. An investigation is typically needed to determine the exact causes of a particular accident.

What to Do After a Bus Accident

If you've been involved in a bus accident, it's crucial to know what steps to take next:

  1. Seek Medical Attention: Your health is the top priority. Even if you feel fine, it's essential to get checked out by a medical professional since some injuries may not appear immediately.
  2. Report the Accident: Inform the police about the accident. An official report can be vital for your claim.
  3. Document Everything: Take pictures of the scene, your injuries, and any property damage. Collect contact information from witnesses and jot down details about the accident while they're still fresh in your mind.
  4. Contact a Bus Accident Lawyer: Reach out to an experienced bus accident lawyer as soon as possible. They can guide you through the legal process and fight for the compensation you deserve.

    "s soon as he took on my case, my stress was lifted and Mr. Wax dealt with all the communication and negotiations."
    I was dealing with my worker's compensation case on my own and I found it confusing and overbearing at times. I met with Alan Wax from The Law Offices of Wax & Wax and I was instantly put at ease. Mr. Wax has been in this business for a very long time; he knew exactly what doctors I needed to see and how to move forward to negotiate my case against the adjusters. He not only advised me for better offers on my case but he demanded I receive all of my doctor requests from the adjuster. As soon as he took on my case, my stress was lifted and Mr. Wax dealt with all the communication and negotiations. Thank you so much for everything! I would recommend the Law Offices of Wax & Wax to anyone and everyone!
