Buses are among the largest vehicles on the road, leaving cars, motorcycles, bicycles, and people extremely vulnerable in a collision. Perhaps you were not hit by a bus per se but suffered an injury on the bus due to driver error, poor maintenance, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances. The bottom line is that your injuries are serious and your life is turned upside down. Your world, as you knew it, has changed. The Baldwin Park bus accident lawyers at Ellis Injury Law work hard to protect your rights and obtain the maximum compensation you deserve for your injuries. Our track record speaks for itself, as we have won over $350 million for all of our clients.  

Bus accident damages  

Damages, or compensation, for a bus accident may include: 

  • Medical expenses, present, and future 
  • Lost wages 
  • Property damage 
  • Pain and suffering. 

Damages will depend on the extent of the client’s injuries, and their prognosis. Bus accident victims often suffer long-term or permanent physical and/or mental impairment from their injuries. An insurance company may contact the injured party not long after the accident, but you should never agree to a settlement before contacting an attorney. Personal injury lawyers know a fair settlement amount for a severe injury, such as a traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, from which the client may never fully recover. Insurance companies are interested in settling for as little as possible, as that is how they make money. Once you agree to an insurance settlement, you cannot reopen negotiations, so you need a lawyer who will fight aggressively for you from the start.  

California statute of limitations 

In California, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit relating to a bus accident is typically two years from the date of the accident. However, unlike most motor vehicle accidents, bus accidents often involve a government entity. If the bus involved in the accident is owned by any type of government agency, ranging from a school district to a metropolitan transportation authority, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is just six months. That means it is imperative to consult a Baldwin Park bus accident lawyer as soon as possible.  

We investigate your claim thoroughly and ensure that all parties responsible are held accountable. In a bus accident, that may include: 

  • Bus driver 
  • Bus company owner 
  • Repair shops 
  • Vehicle manufacturer 

Our firm has vast experience handling lawsuits in which multiple parties are responsible for a client’s injuries. 

 In a worst-case scenario, when a person dies from their bus accident injuries, we can represent the estate in a wrongful death lawsuit. In California, wrongful death lawsuits require filing within two years of the death date, not the date of the bus accident.
