Orange County Bus Accident Attorney
If you have been injured while riding in a bus or some other form of public transportation, you need an Orange County bus accident attorney to represent you.
At Dickson, Kohan & Bablove we have experience representing victims of bus accidents, gathering the necessary information and proving cases in court. That experience can make the difference between a successful outcome and not receiving sufficient compensation.
Our bus accident experience includes:
School Bus Accidents
Millions of school buses drive children to school on a daily basis and typically they are very safe. This is a good form of public transportation because the risk of accidents can generally be reduced by limiting the number of parents driving kids to and from school.
Anyone that has picked up their child knows that the school pick-up-zone can be more dangerous than rush hour traffic. Still, there are numerous incidents of a school bus crashing or running off the road and this is typically due to driver error. If your child was in a school bus accident, you have the right to file a lawsuit on their behalf.
Tourism Bus Accidents
The news can be full of horror stories like the deadly bus careening uncontrolled while driving tourists around the city. Tourism bus accidents happen and when they do, there are typically severe injuries associated with them.
Upper decks and a lack of seat belts can all contribute to further injuries, especially since tourists may be out of seats in order to catch the best view or perfect selfie. Still, if you were injured while on a tourist bus, you have the right to file a lawsuit and seek financial compensation.
Public Transportation Accidents
Public transportation provides a valuable community resource and most often, these buses are safe and driven by responsible drivers. However, things like bad weather, poor road conditions, distracted driving, etc. can all lead to accidents.
Since these buses are constantly running, and often at rush hour times, there is a chance of injury to pedestrians as well. Whether you were on a bus when it crashed or you were hit by one, you should call an attorney.
How an Orange County Bus Accident Attorney Can Help You
We can begin by listening to your story and answering any questions that you may have. After learning more about your accident, what happened before, during and after it, we can make a recommendation regarding how you should proceed with your case.
After you have retained us, we can go to work gathering the necessary evidence to prove negligence and to value your claim.
Here are ways that we can help you:
- Arrange for the insurance company to pay for necessary medical care.
- Negotiate with the insurance companies.
- File a lawsuit and represent you in court.
- Value your claim.
- Maximize the compensation that you receive.
- Ensure that you are treated fairly and that your rights are protected.
An Orange County Bus Accident Attorney Can Work to Determine Negligence
One of the most important things we can do is to prove negligence. We need to research your accident to determine what happened and who was involved.
Next, we need to find out how each party was responsible. For example, was the bus driver and the bus company responsible? Did a government agency bear any responsibility? Was the bus properly maintained? Was the driver trained correctly?
These are questions and areas that need to be fully explored so that we can determine who was really at fault for your accident and hold them responsible. Proving negligence in court is then critical for ensuring that you can receive financial compensation.
Filing a Lawsuit Protects Your Rights
We can help by protecting your rights. After you have been injured there may be the temptation to run everything through your own insurance company. We encourage you not to do that because if you do not pursue your case in court how will the behavior that caused your accident be changed?
Additionally, if you do not file a lawsuit, you may never be able to recover financial damages. Our goal is to help you both now and in the future and filing a lawsuit is one of the best ways to do so.
