Common Types of Bus Accidents

Bus accidents can occur in various forms, each presenting unique risks and contributing factors. Here are some common types of bus accidents:

  • Rear-End Collisions: These accidents occur when a bus crashes into the vehicle in front of it or is struck from behind by another vehicle.
  • Head-On Collisions: These are severe accidents where the front of the bus collides with the front of another vehicle.
  • Side-Impact Collisions (T-Bone): These occur when the side of the bus is hit by the front or rear of another vehicle, often at intersections.
  • Rollover Accidents: These are critical incidents where the bus tips over onto its side or roof.
  • Pedestrian Accidents: These involve buses striking pedestrians, often in crosswalks or bus loading/unloading zones.
  • Bicycle Accidents: These occur when a bus collides with a bicyclist, commonly in urban areas.
  • Sideswipe Accidents: These involve the sides of the bus and another vehicle scraping against each other.

Recoverable Damages in a Bus Accident

From hospital bills to property damage, various damages may be recovered in a bus accident. It’s essential to partner with an experienced attorney who is well-versed in personal injury laws to ensure all damages are taken into consideration. Our firm can fight to ensure you’re compensated fairly by seeking to recover full damages on your behalf. Recoverable damages may include: 

  • Economic damages: These compensate for specific financial losses, such as medical expenses, treatment costs, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and property damage. 
  • Non-economic damages: These compensate for non-financial losses, such as loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and scarring and disfigurement.
  • Punitive damages: In rare cases, punitive damages may be awarded if the defendant’s behavior involved extreme malice or negligence. Unlike the above damages, punitive damages are awarded as a means of punishing the defendant and deterring future behavior, as opposed to compensating the victim directly. 

If you were wrongfully injured in a bus accident, our LA lawyers can fight tirelessly to recover compensation on your behalf. Contact us online to discuss your case.

    My car was rear ended, aggravating a bulging disc. Carpenter & Zuckerman set up all my doctor appointments and paid for everything up front. They were able to get me a settlement for both my injury case and property damage case. I am very happy with the way they handled my case.
