Bus Accident Lawyer Los Angeles County / Practice / Los Angeles Military Bus Accident Attorneys
[Page Updated 07/17/2022] Bus accidents are something most military passengers don’t expect. In fact, like all of us, they place their trust in the bus driver or private bus company. Some soldiers, sailors, and Marines think they can’t sue.
So they rarely reach out to a lawyer. Most vets recall government immunity, and that the UCMJ supposedly prevents suing the U.S. military. But sometimes, a maker or private bus company remains outside the cloak of sovereignty. So you need to keep reading and learn your rights.
Family members must pay special attention and get a proper case evaluation. Often, the military-industrial complex will try and blame weather conditions or road conditions for military bus crashes. Well, if that’s the case, why was the bus on the road at all.
Sometimes bus drivers are private, and other times they are DOD employees. What if they have a known past record for speeding? The higher speeds of San Bernardino County mean even greater impact speeds, translating into a higher chance of a wrongful death lawsuit, or severe brain injury to military personnel aboard.
And why isn’t the bus manufacturer on the hook for their role in a failing piece of equipment like a defective seat-belt? Roger that? Starting to see why hiring the right Los Angeles bus accident lawyer is key when going up against Uncle Sam and the large corporations it’s in bed with? Our bus accident lawyers are ready to go to war for you!
When a military bus accident occurs, it is a harrowing event for everyone involved. So the passengers on the bus, the bus driver, and victims in other vehicles all become victims. The fact, estimates show between 15,000 and 21,000 people become bus accident victims annually.
Also, deaths have been as high as 21 innocents per year. Injuries in a military bus accident can be signific
ant for the passengers. And this remains true even when a passenger believes they might not have been injured. They need a full medical eval.
Above all, tests should include the head, back, and spinal cord. In any case, injuries to these body parts might not be apparent at the accident scene. Last, the injured passenger should contact a reputable bus accident attorney as soon as possible.
At this point, it remains vital to have an experienced military bus accident attorney by your side. These members of the California State Bar will know the statutes of limitations to file a legal claim.
Also, better firms have the resources to investigate the accident.
Incidentally, the time limitations to sue government entities are usually shorter. So that means the lawsuit must get filed within a shortened amount of time.
