We Have Recovered Millions Of Dollars For Victims
Often, bus companies and public transit agencies hide or withhold evidence that can be used against them. With our many years of experience in prosecuting cases against bus companies and public transit agencies, we know what to look for and how to find the evidence necessary to prevail.
Here are just a few of the cases we have handled over the years:
- Collision with bus hidden in smoke — A 19-year-old girl was riding with her boyfriend when they rear-ended a bus on a mountain highway. The back of the bus was obscured by heavy diesel smoke. The girl suffered a spinal cord injury, and our law firm obtained a record-breaking verdict for her: more than $10.257 million.
- Woman hit by bus in the rain — In the middle of a rainstorm, a 62-year-old woman was walking across a driveway when she was hit by a turning bus. She suffered multiple spine and leg injuries. Our lawyers obtained a $2.75 million settlement for her.
- Pedestrian hit in crosswalk — A woman was hit and killed by a left-turning RT bus in downtown Sacramento. At the trial, our law firm was able to prove that she was in the crosswalk at the time, and we obtained more than $2.4 million for her husband and son.
- Bus swerves into a bicycle — A 45-year-old bicyclist suffered a fractured clavicle in South Lake Tahoe when a trolley swerved into him. Due to the bus accident injury, the man was unable to go back to work as a firefighter. Our law firm obtained a $500,000 settlement for him.
