Los Angeles Bus Accident Attorneys

Millions Recovered on Behalf of Our Clients

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) and Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA or, simply, MTA) provide public transportation to all of Los Angeles County. MTA’s Metro buses and rail service and the LADOT’s DASH (“Downtown Area Short Hop”) and Commuter Express buses serve countless individuals throughout the area every day. And, while these entities implement numerous safety features for vehicle operators and passengers, bus accidents throughout Los Angeles are not uncommon.

If you were injured in a bus accident, either as a passenger or a third party, B&D Law Group, APLC can help you take legal action. Bus accidents often result in severe, catastrophic injuries that require extensive medical treatment and ongoing care that, over the course of a victim’s lifetime, can easily exceed millions of dollars. Our Los Angeles bus accident lawyers can help you fight for the fair compensation you are owed for your medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other damages.

When Negligence Leads to Serious Bus Accidents

One of the key factors in bringing a successful bus accident claim is determining and proving liability. In other words, it is essential that you and your attorney work to establish who is at fault for the accident and, therefore, your injuries and associated costs. Our firm can conduct an independent investigation into the accident in order to determine liability.

We look at a variety of factors when determining liability in bus accident cases, including but not limited to:

  • Any mistakes made by the bus driver, whether caused by inattention, lack of training, or another factor
  • Whether or not the bus driver had drugs/alcohol in his or her system at the time of the collision
  • If any part of the bus’s design or manufacturing was defective or unreasonably dangerous
  • If a specific bus part—such as the brakes or tires—were defective or failed to operate as expected
  • Whether or not the bus driver received adequate training and proper supervision
  • If the roadway or bus station where the collision occurred had a defective and/or dangerous design
  • Any actions of other motorists and additional third parties that may have contributed to the crash
  • Whether or not the bus involved in the incident received proper and adequate maintenance

It is important that you reach out to our legal team as soon as possible following a bus accident. Once the accident has occurred, the LADOT, MTA, or another involved party will typically begin their own investigation into the incident right away. These entities may not have your best interests in mind; in fact, they are often only concerned with protecting their bottom line. Our Los Angeles bus accident attorneys can help you work to ensure that your rights are protected.

Call Us Today for a Free, Confidential Consultation

In most cases, you only have a period of six months from the date of the accident in which you can bring a personal injury or wrongful death claim against a public entity, such as the LADOT or MTA. The sooner you contact B&D Law Group, the sooner we can begin building your case. While we cannot guarantee a specific outcome, our goal is always to help our clients achieve the maximum settlement or verdict possible.
