What To Do After a Bus Accident 

Whenever there’s a bus accident, you are your first priority.  If you’re seriously injured, you’ll need immediate medical attention. If you’re not injured, it’s important to help those who are.

Those who receive immediate medical care greatly increase their chances of survival, and decrease the likelihood of any permanent damages.

Once a victim is treated by a medical professional, we recommend contacting an experienced Los Angeles bus accident attorney at The Barnes Firm as soon as possible.  

There are rules and regulations that are specific to bus companies and government transit lines. 

An experienced bus accident lawyer can help determine how these laws could apply to your case.

To make sure your rights are being protected, contact a bus accident attorney at The Barnes Firm now, or call us any time — day or night.

School Bus Accidents

More than 23-million children take a bus to school every day in the US. Statistically, these are some of the safest vehicles on the road, but a school bus accident can happen any time — and there are dozens of accidents involving school buses each year. Most commonly, these involve children outside a school bus, where a child’s backpack or jacket can get snagged in the school bus doors as the bus drives away.

Other cases involve motorists who fail to stop when school bus lights are flashing. This is not only illegal – but it’s very dangerous, and many children are hit by oncoming cars passing a stopped school bus.

These bus accidents can be traumatizing – not only for the child, but for parents as well. The good news is, all of these school bus accidents can be prevented by following local laws and by practicing these safety tips:

  • Have a designated bus stop area, away from busy traffic and the street
  • Do not approach a school bus until it comes to a complete stop
  • When exiting a school bus, teach your child to walk at least 10 feet away from the bus before crossing the road, or going home
  • Always be aware of any traffic around you, and wait for the bus driver to motion your child to cross

If your child has been involved in any kind of school bus accident, it is important to make sure your family’s rights are protected. Contact an experienced bus accident attorney at The Barnes Firm, or give us a call for a FREE case evaluation.

I am very thankful and appreciative for the wonderful job that The Barnes Firm has done for me with my auto accident. I think I was lucky to have Landon and Ali worked on my case. They were always available for me.

I was in a car accident and contacted, The Barnes Firm. I was transferred to an attorney right away. The attorney was very pleasant and helpful. He answered all my questions. He set up an appointment that same week. The attorney himself, came over to my home. He went over the paperwork and explained the procedure very thoroughly. The attorney’s paralegal contacted me right away. The office has been in touch with me and genuinely concerned about my injuries. This firm was on top of my case. I highly recommend them. Please call The Barnes Firm.

My attorney and his Assistant helped me through my injury case. It was a real pleasure having their legal advice available to me in a time when I couldn’t think straight or even figure out what to do after my accident injury.
