Montebello Bus Accident Lawyers
Each year, buses transport more than 700 million passengers – nearly the entire population of Europe – across the U.S. While most people travel safely to and from their destinations, it’s not always the case. In 2016, there were nearly 70,000 rides that led to traveler or driver injuries or deaths.
Given California’s size and large population, it makes it one of the top 10 states with the highest average of fatalities from a large truck or bus accident, with 341 deaths in 2016.
Even if the accident does not result in the loss of life, the impact can be devastating to an individual or family. Bus accident injuries can vary greatly, leaving passengers in the hospital for a few hours, days, weeks or months.
When an injury occurs, the associated expenses can quickly grow, especially if it prevents the individual from returning to work. While every case is different, with help from our Montebello personal injury lawyers, you can begin the process to recover your losses.
Types of compensation
At Ellis Injury Law, our attorneys can help families or individuals who have been impacted by a bus accident recover damages and compensation. This could include, but is not limited to:
- Past, present and future medical expense or loss of wages
- Repair, replacement or reparation for vehicle damages or other lost property in the accident
- Modifications made to the home, assistive devices or technologies as a result of the injury
- Disfigurement or scarring, or emotional suffering and distress
The potentially liable party of an accident can be difficult to determine as the cause could be a result of a bus driver failing to exercise caution, inadequate road conditions or mismanagement of schedules or maintenance from the bus company itself.
