Avalon Bus Accident Lawyers

Avalon Bus Accident Attorney- Andrew L. Ellis Andy Ellis is one of the most successful bus accident lawyers in Los Angeles California. Meet Mr. Ellis and find out how he helps his clients who are injured in bus accidents. http://ellisinjurylaw.com.

As we all know, our beautiful city is a popular tourist destination, and for good reason. While cruise ships are common here, many people arrive via buses. Few things can derail a vacation in paradise like a scary bus accident.  

Due to their sheer size and weight, buses can inflict significant damage upon regular passenger vehicles in an accident. And the passengers of the bus themselves may experience heightened danger because many passengers do not wear seatbelts, people are more likely to be standing or walking in a bus at the time of an accident than they would be in a regular passenger vehicle, and unsecured items may fall from up above and present an additional risk.  

We fight for our clients 

At Ellis Injury Law, our Avalon bus accident lawyers have been fighting on behalf of our clients for over two decades. One example of the amount of destruction that buses are capable of occurred when a bus in Los Angeles rear-ended several cars at a high rate of speed. Our client, a taxi driver, was struck so hard from behind that the car in front of him went up into the air and came down on top of him. He suffered back and neck injuries, requiring surgery for his lower back, and he was forced to miss at least 12 months of work. Our personal injury lawyers were able to recover $1 Million on his behalf.  

Possible causes of bus accidents 

Contact a bus accident lawyer that understands that there are a number of potential causes of a bus accident, including the following:  

  • Mistakes by the bus driver, including speeding too fast for the current road conditions, driver fatigue, distracted driving, faulty judgment, driver inexperience, and driver errors.  
  • Negligence by the bus company itself. Was this driver qualified enough to hire? Is this driver driving too long or too far?  
  • Faulty maintenance of the bus. This could cause the bus to break down or lose control at the worst possible time.  
  • Blind spots, which may lead to improper or dangerous lane changes.  
  • Bad weather, which may limit visibility or hamper the driver’s control of the bus.  
  • The bus catches on fire.  
  • Other drivers. No matter how careful you are, you can’t account for every mistake made by other drivers.  

We can help you meet all deadlines

Bus accidents may present even more urgency on the part of the victim (relative to an accident involving a regular passenger vehicle) due to the various lengths of Statutes of Limitations in California for these cases. Depending on the facts specific to your case, you may have anywhere from six months to three years in which to file your claim.
