Los Angeles Bus Accident Lawyer

Bus Accident Attorney

Public, charter, or school bus accidents can be devastating because of the number of passengers carried inside a bus, combined with the fact that most buses are not equipped with, or do not require riders to utilize, seat belts.  Bus accidents are further complicated by the fact that bus riders are free to move about the cabin of the bus to socialize or use the restroom and, when buses are full or overcrowded, riders are permitted to stand.  School buses carry passengers who for the most part are unsupervised and unrestrained children. If you or a loved have been injured in a bus accident, speaking with a Los Angeles bus accident lawyer can help you understand your legal rights.

The number of people injured in commercial vehicle accidents has increased for the past several decades.  And, the number of buses on the road each year has increased.  There are about 9,000 bus accidents each year in the United States.  Around 12,000 people are injured and 330 people are killed every year in bus accidents.  According to the Center for National Truck and Bus Safety Statistics, the most common fatal bus related accidents are car-bus collisions and pedestrian accidents.  More than 60% of bus accident fatalities involve another vehicle and 25% involve a pedestrian.  During 2008, out of the 311 people that were killed in fatal bus accidents nationally, 39 were in California.  In 2009, there were 1,140 injuries involving bus accidents in California and 2,816 fatal motor vehicle accidents, 23 of which involved buses.

Bus accidents can be caused by numerous contributing factors including:

  • Old buses with outdated equipment
  • Bus driver negligence
  • Dangerous roadways
  • Bad weather conditions
  • Inadequate security
  • Defective products and improper maintenance
  • Lack of bus driver training

If you or your loved one has been a victim of a bus accident, the injury attorneys at Grey Law will fight to make sure you receive full compensation for your losses.  Contact us today at 323-857-9500 for a free case evaluation.
