A bus accident can result in severe injuries for passengers and pedestrians. Medical treatment may be costly, and victims might lose time from work or not be able to return at all. When an accident results in a fatality, the impact on the decedent’s family is compounded by funeral expenses and unspeakable grief. Turning to a Los Angeles bus accident lawyer can give you the time you need to heal after enduring such trauma.
David Azizi has dealt with numerous bus accidents of all types in the Los Angeles area since 1998. He has won settlements for his clients at a 98-percent success rate. David will not only offer compassionate and seasoned advice, he will also plan strategy that includes filing within time limit restraints. He investigates the accident scene, deposes witnesses and law enforcement personnel responding to the accident. Using this information as well as accident reconstruction and medical reports, David establishes negligence, which is a necessary step in winning your case.
Contacting a Bus Accident Law Firm
Buses carry insurance as other motor vehicles do. When another driver is responsible for the bus accident, that person’s insurance will most likely pay. However, obtaining maximum compensation is another matter.
The insurance company may offer an inadequate amount. Without a bus accident law firm, such as that headed by David Azizi, you may be rushed into signing a release saying that the insurance payment covers all present and future problems associated with the accident. But, what happens when you experience lingering physical issues due to the accident? Nothing happens. The release precludes you from taking any further action against the insurance company.
Statute of Limitation in a Bus Accident
This is the period of time within which a lawsuit can be filed after an accident. In most cases, that time period is two years from the time of the incident. However, if the lawsuit is filed against a government entity, such as a city or state, the time is reduced to six months. Since most public transportation buses are city owned, this reduced period would apply.
Types of BusAccidents
Injury-causing bus incidents almost always involve one of the following:
- A school bus crash or other related accident (see our School Bus Accident page)
- Public transit bus accidents
- Long-distance bus incidents, like those involving Greyhound-type buses, tour buses and charter buses
