    About Bus Accident Claims in Tarzana

    Defective bus design

    A bus accident may occur because of problems with the bus itself. For example, the layout of a particular bus could lead to problems with the gas tank that cause it to catch fire. Alternatively, there any one of a number of systems such as the electrical, brake, ventilation or safety could be possessing a flaw that lead to injuries. If any of these defects lead to someone sustaining injuries, it would be the basis for a claim for damages.

    Understanding which legal standards are involved in a case like this is important. It is equally important to understand which party was responsible for the defect. Our lawyers will help you determine if a defect was responsible for your injuries and will hold the correct party accountable for their actions.

    Damages in bus accident claims

    Given the size, weight and structures of buses, the injuries and damages sustained from a bus accident can be substantial. Here, both economic and noneconomic damages are available to pursue. This includes the following:

    • Past medical expenses
    • Future medical costs including long term medical needs
    • Damages for the emotional and mental anguish you have suffered
    • Recovery for lost wages and future earnings
    • Reimbursement for property damage
    • Compensation for any permanent disfigurement or disability
    • Wrongful death damages

    In any claim, a victim must be able to clearly identify and substantiate their damages. These damages will include what has already happened to you as well as what may occur in the future. Our lawyers will help you distinguish what applies and help you recovery financial compensation for all of them.

    Comparative negligence – Seat belts

    California requires people to wear seatbelts, even in commercial vehicles. California is one of only a few states that requires seatbelt use in commercial vehicles, if the seatbelt is provided. As a bus accident victim, you may wonder if you can still bring a claim if you were not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.

    Can I bring a bus accident claim if I was not wearing a seatbelt?

    You can bring a bus accident claim if you were not wearing a seatbelt. However, the amount of compensation that you receive will probably be reduced to account for the fact that you were not wearing a seatbelt. (Franklin v. Gibson, 138 Cal. App. 3d 340 (1982).)

    Remember, if the seatbelt wasn’t installed or provided, you’re not penalized for not wearing one. Our attorneys will help you determine whether or not wearing a seatbelt applies to your case, and how much it factors in.

    Bus accident claims involving government entities

    With so many public transportation systems in Southern California, a number of collisions involving buses also involve government institutions. You can bring a claim forward against the government entity in the case; however, the claims must be done carefully and correctly to be able to recover damages.

    The first thing to know about claims involving government entities is that the timeline is shortened. You must submit a claim for damages within six (6) months of the incident and it must be submitted to the correct organization. The claim for damages must be completed in an appropriate manner and match several other requirements. Right or wrong, these claims are often rejected by the government entitity. If that occurs, you have six (6) months from the date of the rejection to file a lawsuit.

    Our attorneys are well versed in handling claims against government agencies. We can help you take the necessary steps to protect your interests and pursue the damages you deserve.

    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!
