You may not think too much about being involved in a bus accident but they can and do happen. With the tendency for so many people to stand on a bus, due to overcrowding issues, it’s easy for injury to occur when the bus stops short or is involved in an accident. On the other side of the coin, as a driver in a car or other vehicle, you must compete for space on the roadways with buses and collisions may occur on the roadways as well. Similarly, pedestrians are at risk of being hit by a bus, especially on busy streets during high traffic times. With Oxnard bus accident lawyers, you can rest assured that you’ll be protected in the event you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an accident involving a bus.
Whether as a passenger, pedestrian or driver, it’s important to seek representation from a qualified attorney who can file a claim against the other party — either a public transit firm or a private bus company. When you get on a bus, you give yourself over to the care of the bus driver and the company he works for. When that system fails and you have been hurt through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation under the law. Let Oxnard bus accident lawyers help you with this entire process from start to finish.

Because buses don’t have seat belts and many people are forced to stand, especially at busy times of the day, you are vulnerable to injury at any time.

Typically, we can identify claims to cover everything from medical expenses and punitive damages to lost wages and your pain and suffering a s result of the accident.
