California bus accident lawyer

When you decide to take the city bus you put your trust in public transportation, the bus company, as well as the bus driver. The consequences of a bus accident can be substantial, both financially and emotionally. Not only does it affect the commuters that were involved in the accident, but it also affects their loved ones.

Bus Accident Statistics in California

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that accidents involving school buses are nearly three times as fatal for the occupants.

  • Since the year 2004, the NHTSA found that 106 people (adults and children) have been killed. Of those 106 fatalities, 61 of those victims were passengers and the remaining 45 were the drivers.

 What to do if a bus accident occurs

  • First things first, you need to seek medical attention immediately. Sometimes adrenaline can prevent someone from feeling the true extent of their injuries.
  • Ensure that you and your loved ones have received a full medical evaluation of injuries. This includes tests for head injuries, brain function, back injuries, and spinal injuries.
  • The next step you should take as soon as possible is to contact a dependable bus accident attorney at the Amerberg Law Group who has specific expertise in these types of cases.
