Fatal Bus Accident Attorney
In 2019, there were 17,145 bus accidents, resulting in 17,190 injuries and 272 fatalities (Source: fmcsa.dot.gov). Although the number of fatalities may seem relatively small in comparison to the number of people injured, our law firm understands that each and every death is a tragic event, and while nothing can bring back your loved one, you are entitled to compensation for the loss of companionship, society, care, support and income.

Wrongful Death Bus Accident Claims
Both state and federal laws strictly regulate the responsibilities of common carriers and assign appropriate liability when passengers are injured. California bus drivers, for example, are required to exercise the highest degree of care when transporting adults and children across the state — or even from one part of Los Angeles to another.
Unfortunately, negligence-related bus accidents still happen on a regular basis. They may involve a number of factors, including:
- Distracted or fatigued bus drivers
- Insufficiently trained bus drivers
- Inadequate security aboard the bus
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Outdated equipment or vehicles
Often, bus accident injuries are compounded by the frequent lack of seat belts and the fact that passengers are free to move around at will.
