Bus Accidents

You can sue the city or transit authorities for your injuries in a light rail or bus accident, but you need to contact a qualified bus accident attorney quickly, for two reasons: (A) There is a short window to file a lawsuit and (B) it is important for your bus accident attorney to investigate while evidence is fresh. If you have been injured in a bus accident, call 650-345-8484 or email us today.

Suing the Bus Transit System

Many bus accident victims lose their rights to collect damages by waiting too long to bring a claim. Even if your injuries seem minor, contact us online or call 650-345-8484 for a free case evaluation with a Bus Accident Attorneys. If your injuries become worse, you will have no recourse later.

Types of Bus Accident Cases

We have brought successful suits against the San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans), the San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni), Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit) and other East Bay transit providers.

  • Bus Passenger Injuries — We have represented a number of people badly injured in falls when the bus driver accelerated before passengers were seated, stopped violently or collided with another vehicle. Two recent cases involved elderly passengers who broke their hips.
  • Bus Crashes — We represent the occupants of cars who were struck by Bay Area buses. San Francisco bus drivers are notorious for flying down city streets and those who get in their way suffer serious or even catastrophic injuries as a result of the impact.
  • Pedestrians Hit by a Bus — There may be a claim for damages if you or your family member was injured by a city bus (in or out of a crosswalk) or run over at a bus stop.

A Thorough Investigation of the Bus Accident

You would think that there are plenty of witnesses, but we often have the opposite problem. After a crash, the uninjured passengers are ordered off the bus — the bus company doesn’t take statements and they disappear before police arrive.

If we need to prove negligence, we have sent investigators the next day to ride the same route to dig up witnesses who will give a statement. We have also hired experts such as accident reconstructionists to demonstrate liability, and we research the bus driver’s history of accidents or violations.
