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.
Former U.S. Marine Trial Lawyer
Because many vets or active duty soldiers, Marines, etc., think they can’t sue, they rarely contact a bus accident 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. The military-industrial complex often tries to blame weather conditions or road conditions for military bus crashes. If that’s the case, why was the bus on the road?
Sometimes bus drivers are private, and other times they are DOD employees. What if they have a known record of 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 seatbelt? Roger that? Starting to see why hiring the right Los Angeles bus accident lawyer is vital 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!
Are You An Injured Military Bus Passenger?
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. FEstimates 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 significant for the passengers.
And this remains true even when a passenger believes they might not have been injured. They need a complete 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 immediately.
At this point, having an experienced military bus accident attorney by your side remains vital. 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 short amount of time.
Other military injury cases we take include Camp Pendleton personal injuries arising from:
LAV-passenger car accidents
Military fighting vehicle manufacturing defects.
We also accept sexual abuse cases against bus drivers guilty of sexually assaulting sick, wounded, or intoxicated military service members aboard buses.
Compensation Potentially Recovered From A Military Bus Accident
There are many types of compensation. We offer free legal advice for any individual with more specific questions, but here is a list of the payment types generally available in a typical military bus accident injury claim.

Military Bus Collisions We Take?
Our highly experienced Los Angeles bus accident attorneys handle various types of accident claims in both Los Angeles federal and state court, including:
MEPS transportation fleet collisions
MCRDSD to Camp Pendleton / Edson Range buses
Camp Pendleton-Oceanside buses
USMC Bus Accidents
National Guard Collisions
Recruit Travel Assistance crashes.
We handle more cases, but they all have a common thread. These are riders on active duty, EAS, or recruits seeking to be soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, or DHS Coast Guardsmen/women.
Because of this, government transportation claim liability and ordinary civil negligence law can often overlap with contracts for private bust companies and government agencies.
