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.

We have helped individuals who have suffered injuries as a result of things such as:

Bus Accident Case Focus:
Smith v. MV Transportation, Inc (2022)

Ciara was always nice to everyone, no matter if you were mean to her, she was always nice back.
Chandra Le, Ciara Smith’s friend

In the early evening of May 5th, 2017, thirteen-year-old Ciara Smith was riding bikes with a friend on their way home from a ride down to the beach. They reached the intersection of Pacific Coast Highway and Knob Hill Avenue in Redondo Beach, California at approximately the same time as a Metro bus driven by an employee of the subcontractor MV Transportation. 

Both girls rode off the curb and entered the intersection just as the bus passed them on their left side. Ciara collided with the side of the oncoming bus, and was later pronounced dead at the scene. It was the tenth bicycling fatality in Los Angeles county that year.

As more details came to light, it became clear that the dangerous design of the intersection and the inadequate training of the bus driver rendered this not just a tragic accident, but a wrongful death.
