Representing Victims Injured in Bus Accidents
Buses can be great and affordable sources of public transportation, especially for those living in busy areas. While many people choose to ride buses to work, school, or to run errands because of their economic benefits, many fail to notice how dangerous buses can be if they are not maintained properly or are involved in vehicle collisions. Individuals who become injured in bus accidents may reserve the right to recover financial compensation for the following:
- Physical harms
- Emotional distresses
- Visits to the doctor
- Physical therapy
- Lost wages
If you have been harmed in a bus accident and believe the driver or bus company should be held responsible for your injuries, the Los Angeles personal injury lawyers at can provide aggressive representation for you.

Mandatory Bus Regulations
Bus drivers and companies are responsible for providing safe conditions and practicing safe driving habits. If a bus company or driver is negligent and does not maintain a safe environment, they can be held liable for a person’s injuries and harms if an accident occurs.
Many passengers are at risk for serious injuries or fatality when bus operators fail to follow regulations provided by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. In addition, bus passengers are at risk when certain violations, such as those listed below, occur.
- Poor maintenance of safety equipment
- Lack of safety equipment
- Failure to comply with federal safety regulations, such as lack of licensing
- Not following Hours of Service rules which prevent fatigued drivers from driving
- Failure to carry proper registration
