Bus and Train Accidents

Personal Injury Lawyers with Decades of Experience in Los Angeles

Our lead attorneys—David Lederer> and John Nojima—both worked for many years as insurance company lawyers. With their own firm, however, they now represent people just like you.

Rather than protecting the assets of massive insurance companies, they are now on your side. Because of their experience on the other side, they know the insurance company tactics. This may prove beneficial to you as it has to so many of our clients. Our law firm has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for injured clients in some of the most complex cases imaginable. We are particularly skilled at handling the complexity of bus and train accidents in California as well as mass transit and city bus accidents within Los Angeles County.

If you have been involved in a bus or train accident or you are grieving the wrongful death of a loved one, you need an ally on your side with the experience to handle such cases. There may be multiple parties responsible for your injuries, there may be multiple insurance companies involved and you and your loved ones may be struggling with the catastrophic injuries that are often the result of bus accidents. Such accidents seem to be on the rise; each week a new tour bus crash, school bus accident, or commuter train collision is reported. At our law firm, we know how to pursue maximum compensation for our clients. Additionally, we know that holding those responsible for your injuries accountable can make the roads safer for everyone. These accidents happen far too often and holding unsafe bus operators responsible may be the only way to affect change.

The Legal Complexity of Bus and Train Accidents

First, when such an accident occurs, it often can cause great harm to many people at the same time. Each person may want to file a separate suit. There may also be issues of cause that must be established. This may involve a distracted bus driver, failed traffic lights, poor road conditions, faulty tires, or another vehicle operator who may be at fault. Furthermore, the bus may have been traveling from out-of-state or even from out of the country at the time of the accident. A large corporation from out-of-state may own the bus, a different company may operate the bus, and still another may maintain it. All of them may bear some liability for injuries after a crash. There is also the vehicle manufacturer. Our law firm knows how to investigate the details of these accidents and find the truth. This may involve identifying a manufacturer defect in the vehicle. Whatever it takes to get you maximum compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other costs, we will pursue it.

With train accidents, the challenges are no less complicated. After a derailment or collision, the evidence of wrongdoing may be difficult to obtain. We have expert engineers and accident scene investigators who will perform independent analysis of the evidence and we will determine fault. If any organizations—whether a city, a state, or a private corporation—were responsible for your injuries, we will hold them accountable. We know how to sift through the levels and levels of bureaucracy and stand up to opposing lawyers. We have the skill, the resources and the experience to deal with these complex cases.

Whether you were a passenger, pedestrian, or operating another vehicle at the time of a bus or train crash, we are available to help you. Whether the bus involved was a Mass Transit Authority vehicle, a tour bus, Greyhound or other bus company’s responsibility, we have the resources to help. And whether or not the train involved in the crash was a metro light rail, Union Pacific or another, we have the experience you need on your side.Our Los Angeles bus accident lawyers will help determine if you have a case and if you do, we will fight to win it for you.
