Jesse J. Bañuelos, A Los Angeles Bus Accident Attorney
A FIGHTER FOR THE RIGHTS OF INJURED BUS ACCIDENT VICTIMS
In a large metropolitan area like Los Angeles, hundreds of buses transport passengers across city streets and on longer cross-county trips every day. Many people depend on these buses for public transportation to get to school, work, for shopping, and other appointments. In heavily trafficked areas, buses must compete with other drivers of cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Included are motor coaches, inter-city buses, school buses, large passenger vans, and commuter mini-buses used by smaller communities within the Los Angeles area. When these types of buses are involved in traffic accidents, many individuals can be hurt, including bus passengers as well as occupants of other vehicles who collide with them.
In a study conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in 2009, it was found that the majority of bus accidents occur in large cities like Los Angeles. According to the study, most of these accidents are caused by driver negligence. It was found that 15 out of 19 bus accidents were due to the bus driver’s negligent behavior, such as speeding, dangerous lane changes, failing to safely adjust to harsh weather conditions, swerving off the road, and other poor driving maneuvers. Bus accidents can also occur due to combined factors of driver mistakes and negligence on the part of the bus company, resulting in fatigued and overworked drivers who were unable to remain fully alert while on the job.
