Bus Accident Attorney
Injured? Our Experienced Orange County Firm Can Help
Any motor vehicle accident can be damaging, but accidents involving buses are especially likely to cause severe, catastrophic injuries. Buses might crush sedans, trucks, and other passenger vehicles with their large size and substantial weight, especially if the bus falls onto the other vehicle or if they collide head-on. Buses might also run passenger vehicles into medians, walls, and other obstacles unintentionally, which can also be extremely harmful.
Bus passengers also face serious risk in a crash because their seats often lack safety harnesses, airbags, and other types of protective equipment. As a result, bus accidents, though less common than standard car accidents, are particularly damaging.

Common Bus Accident Causes
Bus accidents are often caused by negligent bus drivers, vehicle malfunctions, faulty vehicle parts, or road hazards, but they can also be caused by other drivers on the road. When passenger vehicle drivers fail to follow traffic laws, or if they text and drive, or drive while intoxicated, their actions could result in major damage.
Bus accidents often result in the following injuries:
- Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Spinal injuries
In some cases, bus crash survivors are left traumatized from the experience, and they may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These damages can be extreme, which is why bus accident survivors often require extensive, ongoing medical care, such as physical therapy.
Fighting For Maximum Compensation After a Crash
Bus companies and bus drivers have a certain level of responsibility to their passengers. If your accident was caused by driver negligence, lack of vehicle maintenance, or inadequate safety precautions, you may be able to hold the bus company liable for the damage suffered. Other responsible parties might include the driver of the other vehicle or the bus manufacturer.
In any case, if you were harmed, our firm can work with you to determine who might be liable for the damage you suffered. Once the responsible party has been identified, we can help you secure maximum compensation for your damages, which may include medical expenses, loss of wages, and pain and suffering.
