Commercial Bus Negligence

Commercial bus injuries are often caused by negligent operation, unsafe conditions at bus platforms and stops, defective equipment and assault by another passenger. No matter what caused the bus accident and injuries, our Oakland Bus Accident lawyers use insightful strategies to build powerful cases and seek compensation from all liable parties. Although the liable party is most often the bus company, other liable parties may include:

  • Bus drivers
  • Other motorists who contributed to the accident
  • Manufacturers of defective vehicles or vehicle parts
  • Owners of the roadway (if dangerous conditions exist)

Whether you were a bus passenger, pedestrian or motorist, we can use our decades of experience and proven litigation techniques to give your case a strong chance of success. We are even equipped to assist in wrongful death lawsuits, where the negligence of a bus driver or another party led to the loss of a loved one.
