The motto for Palmdale, California, reads “A Place To Call Home.” In this case, home is in the Antelope Valley of northern Los Angeles County. The San Gabriel Mountain range separates it from the city of Los Angeles. With a population of more than 150,000, Palmdale has long been ranked as one of the fastest growing cities in the country. According to legend, it gets its name from a mistake by westward-heading travelers. Lutherans who were seeking a western home built a village in the Palmdale limits in the 1880s. They had been told they would be close to the ocean when they saw palm trees. They had never actually seen a palm tree and mistook it for the local growing Joshua tree. So they settled down and named the area Palmdale, and no one has thought to correct the mistake.
Today, this sprawling city has lots to offer for settlers old and new. That means all the comforts and delights of modern life and some of the not-so-delightful. With a lot of people moving about the area, Palmdale has a lot of traffic. Cars fill the streets and so do buses, a convenience for workers and travelers but also an addition to the traffic problem. Sometimes the traffic problem involves accidents. When it involves a bus, caused by the driver or mechanical failure, the injuries are likely to involve more than one person. In that case, injured passengers may rightly look to compensation from the bus company, and that should mean a call to a Palmdale bus accident lawyer for help.
If you are involved in a bus accident in Palmdale, realize from the start that the bus company is not on your side. They want facts that support the company’s interests, not yours. A Palmdale bus accident lawyer will represent you and your interests. Was the bus driver at fault in the accident? If so, has the driver been involved in other such accidents? Your lawyer will also investigate the company’s role in allowing drivers with a bad record to operate their buses. All these factors are important as you seek restitution for your injuries.
