Bus Maintenance Issues & Defective Parts

California Bus Accident Lawyer

Failure to properly maintain buses and parts that are defectively designed or manufactured are common causes of bus accidents. When this occurs, broken bones, burns, soft tissue injuries, paralysis, wrongful deaths and many other types of injuries can be the result. Do you know what compensation you may be owed? Should you accept the first offer an insurance company offers you in settlement?

At Matiasic & Johnson LLP, we have 25 years of experience in seeing that personal injury victims get the answers they need. In the past few years we have recovered over $12,000,000 for our clients, including what is thought to be the largest personal injury/wrongful death verdict in the history of Madera County. Based on our proven record of success, if you have been injured in a bus accident we recommend talking with a dedicated California bus accident attorney from our firm before making any final settlement agreements.

At times, those who design or manufacture parts for buses try to cut corners or make mistakes. Safety tests that are not conducted or are carried out in an incorrect manner, substandard parts that are less costly or other measures to reduce expenses may be the reasons why your accident occurred.

Likewise, when cost cutting actions result in brake problems, worn out tires, a shaky steering column or other maintenance faults, it places all passengers in danger. Those responsible should compensate injured passengers. Additionally, by bringing their negligence actions to light it can prevent further pain and suffering in the future.

Liability for a Bus Accident Injury

Our job is to find the actual reasons for your bus crash and the parties who are liable. We take great satisfaction in resolving the tough cases and taking them through to completion, whether that means a favorable settlement or winning at trial.

With defective parts, the original manufacturer or a retailer may be liable for the injuries you sustained. In the case of faulty maintenance, if the bus company uses an independent contractor for these services, that company may be held responsible for your accident. The bus company may be sued if they perform their own maintenance or sent your bus out knowing it was unsafe to do so. We work to identify all possible claims in your case and aggressively pursue these towards maximum compensation.

Contact a California bus accident lawyer for assistance in finding out if your injuries were caused by maintenance issues or defective parts.
