Bakersfield Bus Accident Lawyer
Bus crashes are an unfortunate reality in California. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, these crashes result in approximately 300 fatalities each year in California alone. Given the enormous size of these commercial vehicles, it is no surprise that a collision could have severe consequences for passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers.
At Ellis Law, our skilled Bakersfield bus accident lawyers have dedicated themselves to helping injury victims. If you or a loved one have sustained injuries in a Bakersfield bus accident, you have the right to seek monetary compensation. Over the past 20 years, our team has recovered more than $350 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients. Let us put our experience to work for you.
Damages in a bus accident
One of the first steps for our Bakersfield personal injury lawyers is to identify the damages that may be available in any given case. Due to the severity of the injuries, bus crash victims often have extensive medical bills and additional expenses. When those injuries occur due to the negligence of a bus operator or owner, you may have a viable claim to recover those damages. Common damages in a bus accident include:
- Medical bills
- Future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
- Decreased future earning potential
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of companionship
- Property damage
No fee guarantee
You will never pay up-front legal fees with Ellis Law. When you work with an experienced bus accident lawyer from Ellis Law, we only recover our legal fees if we are successful in your case. If you do not get paid, we do not get paid.
Our firm works on a contingency basis. At the very beginning, we will agree to a percentage of your recovery that will go to the firm for our fees. You will never receive a surprise bill or be charged for unexpected legal expenses. We feel strongly that the inability to pay upfront legal fees should not prevent you from recovering compensation for your injuries.
