Los Angeles Bus Accident Attorneys
Strong Representation for Mass Transit Accidents
Riding the bus is both cost-effective and better for the environment, as far as any form of carpooling goes. However, when you are riding a bus, you are often more susceptible to accidents and injury. Even if you do not ride the bus and instead walk or drive to work, you are at a certain level of risk with buses and large public transportation vehicles on the road around you. If you were injured while riding the bus or as a bicyclist, pedestrian, or motorcyclist hit by a bus, we can help.
At Mardirossian & Associates, Inc., our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers represent the injured. Contact our firm now to learn more.
What Causes Public Transportation Accidents?
In most cases, bus drivers are required to undergo specific training and even hold a special license. However, as careful as a bus driver may be, there are a variety of other factors which can be involved in an accident. If you are inside a bus you are unlikely wearing a seatbelt, which can lead to severe injuries. Likewise, if you are hit by a bus as a pedestrian or in another vehicle, it can cause catastrophic injuries as a result of less protection against a heavier, larger vehicle.
A few common causes of bus accidents include:
- Mechanical problems or defects
- Poor weather conditions
- Bus driver negligence
- Lack of proper safety features
- Blind spots for the driver
- Bus driver fatigue
- Construction or road problems
