Local Bus Accident Attorney Serving the Antelope Valley
Antelope Valley has grown its public transportation service by purchasing new buses and becoming the first all-electric travel agency. Although buses are a great affordable means of getting to destinations, buses are just as susceptible to getting into an accident as any regular motor vehicle. If you have been involved in a bus accident, Kistler Law Firm can help to get the responsible drier accountable and collect compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other legal damages.
Causes of Bus Accidents
Passengers of buses do not share the same safety equipment as passengers of other vehicles. Many stand up during the ride. And those seated do not wear seatbelts.
Common causes of bus accidents include:
- A distracted bus driver, particularly when using communication devices while driving
- A distracted driver of another vehicle
- Improper turns
- Unsafe lane changes Help is Available
Passengers are encouraged to stay seated or in a secure position if possible. However, all the care in the work cannot protect you from a negligent, reckless, or aggressive driver. If you have been injured in a bus accident, please contact Kistler Law Firm to speak with a rideshare accident attorney about your rights to recover compensation for the harm done to you.
