    California Bus Accident Lawsuit Compensation

    Who pays compensation for a bus accident?

    The party that pays compensation for a bus accident is the party responsible for the accident. Buses are usually owned by legal or public entities, not individuals. If the person at fault is the bus driver, the company they work for may be liable.

    The bus manufacturer may even have legal liability for poor vehicle design or manufacturing. Bus drivers are “common carriers” in California. This means they are held to a higher standard than normal drivers. Failure to obey and follow each law strictly can be considered reckless or negligent conduct. This conduct entitles an individual harmed to compensation for their damages and injuries.

    The California standard for negligence is failing to use reasonable care in the management of person or property leading up to the accident.

    What is the basis of bus accident claims?

    Bus accidents may be caused by:

    • Speeding
    • Failing to watch for pedestrians
    • Errors during embarking and disembarking passengers
    • Sudden stops; hazards that lead to sudden braking
    • Poor bus maintenance
    • Inadequate vehicle design and manufacturing
    • Hiring and retaining unqualified drivers
    • Failing to train workers properly
    • Improper lane changes
    • Failing to leave sufficient following distance from other vehicles
    • Not observing traffic signals and stop signs
    • Distracted driving; drowsy driving; texting
    • Alcohol and drug-related crashes

    How do I claim compensation after a bus accident?

    To claim compensation after a bus accident, you file a claim with the responsible party’s insurance company. The bus owner should have car insurance and business insurance to cover them for accidents. It may also be necessary to file a legal claim in court.

    California Bus Accident Lawsuit FAQs

    Can you sue a bus company?

    Yes, you can sue a bus company. A company is usually responsible for the actions of its drivers. Negligence principles and the rules of the road apply to bus drivers like all other vehicle operators.

    Can you get compensation for a school bus accident?

    Yes, you may get compensation for a school bus accident. There are special steps when the claim involves a government body and when a victim is a minor, so don’t wait to contact our lawyers.

    What is typical bus accident compensation in California?

    Because buses do not have seatbelts, an individual may be thrown from their seat in an accident. In addition, many bus accidents involve pedestrians who do not have the protection of a vehicle. For that reason, injuries in bus accidents tend to be particularly severe, leading to high compensation.
    California law does not limit the amount that a bus accident victim may receive. Whatever your economic damages are (medical bills, lost income, and property damage), you may claim them as well as pain and suffering, emotional anguish, permanent disfigurement and changes in lifestyle.

    Can I sue for a bus crash involving public transportation?

    Yes, it is possible to bring a bus accident claim when public transportation is involved. A government entity may pay compensation for damages caused by their drivers. The California Tort Claims Act is involved, and the time limit to start the claim is as short as six months.

    How long do I have to sue for a bus accident in California?

    You have two years to sue for a bus accident in California. If the defendant is a government body, you have six months. Even if you haven’t fully healed from your injuries, it’s important to begin your case well in advance of the deadline. It’s best to contact our lawyers as soon as you are injured.

    Does my wife or husband have a claim?

    Yes. In California, a spouse of an injured party may make a claim for what is referred to legally as “Loss of Consortium”. Loss of Consortium is a form of “Non-Economic” damages that can be awarded to the spouse of an injured party.

    California Civil Jury Instruction (CACI) No. 3920 states that when a spouse is harmed, their wife or husband may make a claim for the loss of their “companionship and services”, which includes “loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, moral support, sexual relations, and/or the ability to have children.”

Insurance company was against me, this law firm got the best of my lawsuit. I highly recommend L A Century, my attorney for life. Thank you Ryan and Marco, you are the best.

    Marchelle Y

    Attorney Daneshrad is very professional and courteous. I called him after being involved in a rear ender. I didn’t know anything about anything when it came to the process for making a claim after a car accident. Everyone at his office including Jennifer did everything in their power to make sure I was taken care of.

    They made doctors appointments and regularly called to check-in on me. We ended up having to file a lawsuit. Three months after we did, attorney Daneshrad called me with great news! We had a settlement offer. It was for a lot more than I could have imagined. It has been three weeks since the settlement and he still calls me to check in on my injuries. You can tell he really cares about. He isn’t just about the numbers. Thank you attorney daneshrad! And happy holidays!
