Compensation in Bus Accident Cases
Because buses are large, heavy vehicles, they tend to cause massive damage when they collide with other vehicles and objects on or near the roadway. Passengers, motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists who are involved in bus accidents typically suffer severe, catastrophic injuries and many bus accidents are ultimately fatal.
If the accident that caused your injuries or the death of your loved one was a result of negligence, you are entitled to take legal action to receive compensation for your damages.
While every case is different, these damages often include:
- Immediate emergency medical attention
- Ongoing medical treatment and future care
- Medical equipment, such as wheelchairs
- Prescription medications to treat injuries/assist with pain management
- Lost income/wages from time taken off work to receive medical care
- Reduced or lost earning capacity if your injuries prevent you from returning to work
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Inconvenience, disfigurement, and/or reduced or lost quality of life
If your family member or loved one was killed in a bus accident, you may be able to recover compensation for any medical bills incurred prior to death, funeral/burial expenses, loss of financial support, loss of expected finances and/or inheritance, and non-economic damages including but not limited to loss of companionship, emotional anguish, and loss of love.

All too often, the liable insurance party will offer a lowball settlement that does not even come close to covering the costs associated with the accident. It is absolutely crucial that you speak to a Santa Clarita bus accident attorney about your case in order to better your chances of receiving a fair settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, our attorneys are not afraid to aggressively advocate for you in trial.
