Mendez and Sanchez - Bus Accident Attorney in Monterey Park, California

Have You Been Injured in a Bus Crash?

Buses are a common site throughout California. Hundreds of thousands of passengers use buses annually to get from place to place. Some buses offer local transportation around a city and service commercial districts, while others use buses as their way to commute to and from work. Still others decide to ride on a bus as they travel out of state to see family or friends. Whatever the reason, California residents are boarding buses in large numbers every year and that is a pattern that is expected to continue in the coming decades.

The majority of these citizens travel safely while aboard these buses but unfortunately, many suffer injuries every year in California bus accidents. Commonly these injuries are very severe, in part because passengers do not wear seat belts while riding on most buses. With many bus companies servicing Monterey Park and California as a whole, it may not be surprising that these bus accidents account for many injuries each year and unfortunately some might result in death. If you suffer an injury, make sure to speak with a Monterey Park bus accident lawyer ASAP.

What Are Some of the Common Causes of Bus Crashes?

What Legal Rights Are Available to a Bus Crash Victim?

As a bus crash victim, the law may provide you several civil claims to pursue. The cases available will rely on the circumstances of a specific accident and who is at fault in the accident.

At-Fault Third Parties

If another driver causes a crash with a bus while you are an occupant on that bus, you may have a claim against the other motorist for your injuries. If the other driver does not have enough insurance coverage available for all of the injuries sustained in the accident or if the other driver has no insurance available at all, you might also have a right to bring an uninsured or underinsured claim against your own insurance provider or the bus company itself, if there is UM coverage available.

At-Fault Bus Driver

On the other hand, if the accident is because of a negligent bus driver and you were either a bus passenger or in another vehicle, you might have a claim against the bus driver and the bus company. This is true even if the bus owner is a municipality, like a city bus used for public transportation.

Safety Defects on a Bus

Finally, if the accident is caused by some defect in the bus itself and not by actions of any drivers, you may have a claim against the:

Any bus driver who is hurt in a collision might also have a claim for worker's compensation for their injuries.

The possibility of so many claims makes a bus accident case complicated and complex. Typically the more vehicles involved in the accident, the more complicated the case( s). This is a reason that when choosing a bus accident attorney in Monterey Park, you want to choose one with experience prosecuting personal injury cases.
