California has a vast public transportation system featuring trains and buses. With many tourists, business professionals and citizens roaming major cities by foot, car, bicycle or truck, accidents involving buses or mass transit are imminent. Add outside mass transit like Amtrak and Greyhound, California has millions of drivers, walkers, and riders daily. Some accidents are innocent, although many aren’t.
Our firm, Compass Law Group, PC handles claims where city and privately-owned trains and buses caused personal injury due to negligence. An educated Santa Clarita bus & transit accident attorney from our firm petitions wrongdoers to compensate victims for their current and expected losses. Should negotiations break down, we’ll bring private enterprises or city officials to court to defend their driver’s reckless actions.
In 2014, a startling 69,000 bus accidents were reported to the Bureau of Traffic Statistics. There were additional 9,844 accidents via railroad. Compared to automobile accidents, buses and trains were relatively safe. Does mean accidents on buses and other forms of mass transit aren’t probable? Hardly. California has had its fair share of bus accidents in recent times, several which our firm has represented the injured parties.
Holding the right people accountable is the trick in these cases. City-owned bus transportation drivers will naturally blame the injured, as will other national transportation mediums. Cases like this require a much heavier burden of proof on plaintiffs seeking compensation for injuries, which makes suing these large companies much harder for individuals with little knowledge of civil procedures.
We’ve had the same Santa Clarita bus & transit accident attorney in our office for many years. Skilled and aggressive, they’ll work tirelessly to hold the proper party accountable for their actions. Class action suits have come from bus accidents and mass transit crashes, and we’ve even represented loved ones of those who died in bus and mass transit accidents.
Following too closely, driving while distracted and simply not following the rules of the road are common reasons why large buses crash into passenger cars. Pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists have also been unfortunate victims of bus & transit driver negligence. Passengers of mass transit vehicles can also sustain injuries.
Unparalleled and respected within the community, Compass Law Group, PC represents victims with the same level of excellence we serve our families. The personal injury litigation process is precarious for pro se litigants, oftentimes rendering little if any compensation for their efforts. Holding local transit and bus authorities accountable takes razor-sharp precision in every phase of litigation or negotiation, with a single mishap jeopardizing an entire case.
You’ve been seriously injured either riding mass transit or driving a car that a bus or train hit. Somebody must pay for your injuries, even if that means dragging the entire city government into court. Retain our reliable mass transit accident lawyer, and you’ll be in good hands.
Victims or loved ones representing decedents can schedule a no-cost consultation with our firm.
Hiring the right personal injury attorney can often make the difference between getting the maximum settlement to account for your medical care, damages and lost wages or getting short changed or even having your case dismissed completely.
