Experienced Bus Accident Counsel In Palm Springs
Buses are hard to maneuver and hard to stop. Bus drivers cannot always see, especially when backing up, pulling into traffic or changing lanes. Although the bus itself can absorb a collision, passengers are vulnerable to injury even in a low-speed crash.
The Law Offices of Michael R. Kaiser represents people injured in bus accidents, whether aboard the bus or struck by a bus. You should contact a lawyer promptly to preserve evidence that may be important to prove your damages.
Our Palm Springs personal injury firm offers a free consultation to victims of serious traffic accidents in the Coachella Valley and throughout Riverside, San Bernardino and Imperial counties.
Serious Representation For Serious Accidents
The Valley sees a regular stream of buses — lined up for Coachella Fest, delivering tourists to the Fabulous Follies, transporting people from Southern California to the Laughlin casinos. In addition to bus accidents on I-10, there is a potential for collisions with buses on two-lane roads in the desert and on the small surface streets of Palm Springs, Indio, Palm Desert, Cathedral City and surrounding communities. Simply by parking illegally in fire lanes, buses cause accidents by obstructing the vision of drivers and pedestrians.
Michael Kaiser is a courtroom veteran and a former insurance defense lawyer who knows which factors are important in establishing liability. He oversees a thorough investigation aimed at holding the bus company, the drivers or third parties accountable for your injuries.
We are equipped for all scenarios involving commercial tour buses, cross-country touring coaches, school buses, shuttles and limousines:
- Buses colliding with cars
- Children, pedestrians or bicyclists struck by buses
- Injured bus passengers (collisions, sudden stops, fall downs)
- Multiple-vehicle accidents on the freeway
Bus companies are well-insured for serious or catastrophic injuries, but also well-represented. You need a lawyer who can properly document your case and represent you in negotiations or in court. We investigate the background of the bus driver, the transportation company’s safety record and the negligence that led to the accident — driver fatigue, driver distraction, traffic violations, et cetera.
