Ontario Bus Accident Lawyer
It’s a beautiful spring day in California, and you’re returning from a trip to Ontario International Airport where you just dropped off a friend. You’re stopped at a red light when suddenly a bus plows into your rear-end, sending you into the crosswalk and striking a pedestrian. You’re then stuck in the path of crisscrossing traffic and t-boned by a driver who is helpless to avoid the collision. You have sharp pain in your left arm and neck and a lot of questions swirling around in your head. Who caused this accident? Will I miss work? Who will pay for my medical bills and car repairs? The answers to these questions can be complicated, which is why you need to contact City of Ontario bus accident lawyers as soon as you are able. The Los Angeles personal injury lawyers with Ellis Law are standing by 24/7 to listen to your side of the story and help you figure out what your next steps should be.
Bus accident law can be complicated
In the above-mentioned accident, we know that the collision clearly wasn’t your fault. However, is the driver liable? Is the company or municipality who owns the bus liable? Is it a mix of the two? City of Ontario bus accident lawyers will review maintenance records of the bus, training and driving records of the driver, as well as checking nearby traffic and security cameras to see if the driver may have been speeding. Mobile device records may even be checked to see if the driver was texting or talking on the phone directly prior to the crash. If mechanical issues like brake failure are to blame, liability may rest squarely with the company who owns the bus. If the driver is distracted, they are the ones who are more responsible. If a mix of speeding and poor brakes caused the accident, both parties may equally be to blame. Your bus accident lawyer will help you make sense of this complex situation.
