According to the United States Department of Transportation Bureau of Transportation Statistics, there were around 65,000 bus accidents in the United states in 2018. While buses are a typically safe and common used form of public transportation, accidents can result in serious personal injuries or death. This may be caused by a driver’s negligence, failure to drive appropriately for conditions, defective vehicles, improper maintenance, inadequate security, or dangerous roadways. For passengers utilizing this form of public transportation, bus accidents also pose additional safety issues due to the lack of seat belt accommodations in most buses. Thus, passengers are left vulnerable to serious injuries as a result of reduced safety features that protect individuals when a collision happens. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a bus accident, whether you were a passenger, a pedestrian, or a driver or passenger of another vehicle, you may have a claim for your personal injuries. Our car accident lawyer in Escondido has handled claims against both public and private bus companies that owe you – the consumer – the highest duty of care as a common carrier.
Claims for damages against bus companies are often more involved because many bus companies are public entities. This means that there may be strict time limitations and other specific regulations on how and when claims may be made. It is easy to lose your right to fair compensation because of the nature of such cases and the complexities of these laws. Many times, such entities will attempt to settle for far less than what people deserve in these cases by offering low-ball offers that do not cover the person’s medical and other expenses. Therefore, you need the expertise of a bus accident lawyer in Escondido that has made many public entity claims against bus companies, such as the personal injury attorneys in Carlsbad at the Rubinstein Law Group. It is with compassion and dedication that our lawyers will provide you with the knowledge and experience you need to get the compensation that you are entitled to.
All bus accident injury cases are handled on a contingency fee. A contingency fee means that if we don’t get compensation for you there will be no fee. If you have been in a bus accident, please contact our Escondido personal injury lawyer immediately at 760.804.2790 to schedule your free consultation.
