Bus Accident Lawyer in Los Angeles
Holding California Buses and Common Carriers Accountable
Public transportation providers are often referred to as “common carriers” under the law, which means that they are open to and in the business of transporting members of the general public. Examples of common carriers include city- and state-operated buses. Common carriers in California are held to a higher degree of responsibility than ordinary motor vehicle drivers.
If you were injured in an accident involving public transit vehicles like these, our Los Angeles bus accident attorney is here to help. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Bus Accidents Occur On Our Freeways And Interstates
You can see every kind of multiple-passenger vehicle on our freeway system, twenty-four hours a day. Accidents may involve any of the following:
- Shuttle buses
- City buses

Drivers are perched high above traffic, but they might not see what is behind them. Accidents can be minor, or they can be very brutal, resulting in catastrophic injuries or death.

City Buses and Other Carriers Have Legal Responsibilities
California’s Civil Code §2100 states that common carriers “must use the utmost care and diligence for [passengers’] safe carriage, must provide everything necessary for that purpose, and must exercise to that end a reasonable degree of skill.” When bus drivers and bus companies or any other common carriers fail to comply with such laws, passengers can suffer severe injuries or even wrongful death.
