La Verne Bus Accident Lawyers
Every day, passengers rely on buses for transportation across Los Angeles County. Most bus trips are without incident but when crashes occur, it puts both the passengers and those sharing the road in danger.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a La Verne, California bus accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. The La Verne bus accident lawyers at Ellis Injury Law fight to hold bus companies accountable when their negligence leads to harm.
Causes of bus crashes
Unfortunately, most bus crashes – and the injuries they cause – are preventable. In many cases, the accidents are caused by the driver’s or bus company’s negligence. Some of the common causes include:
- Driver fatigue
- Inadequate bus maintenance
- Poor bus driver decision-making
- Aggressive driving
- Mechanical failure or malfunction
- Incompetent employees or improper training
Compensation available to bus accident victims
When someone else’s negligence is to blame for your injuries, you may be entitled to receive compensation to restore you to the position you would be in if not for the accident.
Unfortunately, the defendants’ insurance companies will make low-ball offers to save themselves money. But when you choose a bus accident lawyer at Ellis Injury Law, you can be sure we will fight for the full amount you are due, which can include:
- Past medical bills
- Future medical treatment
- Other medical expenses, including medication, specialized care, and medical devices
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Reimbursement for vehicle repairs
- Loss of consortium
How a La Verne bus accident lawyer can help
Proving liability in a bus accident case is often complex and bus companies have the resources to mount a heavy defense. Victims are best served when they have the help of personal injury lawyers to take the lead and protect their rights.
In the days, weeks, and months following an accident, while you are recovering physically, emotionally, and financially, the bus company’s lawyers will be hard at work trying to deny liability. When you have a skilled lawyer on your side as early as possible, they will get to work investigating the cause, preserving evidence, and determining which entities or individuals may be liable.
It is not necessary to worry about how to afford an experienced lawyer. When you work with a bus accident lawyer at Ellis Injury Law, there is no up-front fee as we only get paid out of the compensation that we secure on your behalf.
