Irvine Bus Accident Lawyers

When we think of personal injury, bus accidents may not be the first thing that springs to mind.  Bus accident numbers tend to be overshadowed by car accident statistics, which are far more common.  However, bus accidents can cause just as much, if not more, damage than car accidents and have similar or greater impacts on the victims.  Irvine bus accident lawyers work with bus accident victims to be sure they are being treated fairly in receiving just compensation for their losses.

Bus accidents are rarer events than car accidents for several reasons.  First, buses are big and noticeable; people tend to get out of the way of an oncoming bus.  There are not as many buses on the road as passenger cars; while millions of automobile accidents occur every year, there were only 11,000 bus accidents in 2008 according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.  By definition, there will be fewer bus accidents than car accidents.  Also, bus drivers are carefully trained to handle these large vehicles, and many are good, safe drivers.  However, when a bus is involved in an accident, the injuries are often more severe than in a “fender bender” type of car accident.  Death and permanent disability are not uncommon results for the victims of a bus accident.

Bus Accident Attorneys

Bus accident attorneys in Irvine work with victims and families of bus accidents to ensure that adequate compensation is paid in a bus accident case.  Buses are often owned by cities and other municipal organizations that make it difficult for the average person to know how to collect compensation.  Even a suit against a privately-owned bus company can quickly become complicated given that the at-fault driver, the bus company, and the owner of the bus may all be different people or organizations.  It takes the expertise of a truly knowledgeable bus injury attorney to sort through the various layers of ownership and liability and to pursue the case in the right direction and under the right jurisdiction.

Because bus accident suits can be so complex, and because there may be several victims all trying to seek damages at the same time, it is wise to secure the services of a professional bus accident injury lawyer.  This expert will guide you through the process carefully and work for you alone to be sure that you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.  You may be able to make a claim not only for medical and personal property damage, but for intangible damages as well, such as pain, suffering, loss of use of your body or car, and other factors.
