Bus Accident Lawyers in Los Angeles

A bus is a vehicle that can transport more than nine people. Think Greyhound, school bus and local city buses, tour- and charter buses. Bus transport is fast, cheap, and convenient. We trust the bus driver to get us to our destination safely. We hope he is well-trained and competent to drive us, but also our children on a daily basis.

To be struck by a bus or injured while riding in one can be truly devastating. Trust a Los Angeles attorney from KJT Law Group to effectively represent your interests in and out of the courtroom. Schedule your consultation today.

How Common Are Bus Accidents in Los Angeles?

Buses are very safe. Most bus drivers know what they are doing, and they are well equipped to deal with difficult situations and know how to avoid accidents. The licensing standards for a bus driver are strict – they need a commercial driver’s license to operate a bus.

Commercial driving licenses are regulated at the federal level. This is one thing that your personal injury lawyer can look at when there was an accident: the track record of the bus driver. If it is found that the driver was not properly certified or his certification was not up to date, liability can be proven and a strong case for negligence can be built.

So, to answer the question: bus accidents are quite rare. Statistics from the most recently available data show that only in 12% of all fatal crashes on national roadways a large truck or bus was involved. This percentage is lower in non-fatal crashes – here only in 7% of the cases a large truck or bus was mixed up in the accident.

But, if a bus accident does happen, it can be catastrophic. Buses are huge and heavy. The bus driver must deal with multiple blind spots. Buses usually don’t have seatbelts. If a bus should overturn, occupants are tossed around in the cabin. Hitting a static object can lead to serious injuries due to the heavy and higher momentum of a bus.
