Los Angeles MTA Accident Lawyers
We Can Help You File an L.A. Metro Bus Injury Claim
Ranking as the second-largest bus fleet in all of North America, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority or MTA transports over a million riders by bus and railway every month. While a study published at the University of Minnesota recently uncovered that the L.A. MTA system is also the third most comprehensive metro system in the country, serious bus accidents can and do happen each year.
Our Los Angeles MTA bus accident lawyers at Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, have obtained millions of dollars in financial compensation for people who were seriously injured as passengers of Los Angeles MTA buses – or as drivers, pedestrians, or cyclists sharing the road with MTA vehicles. A big part of our success in achieving successful verdicts and settlements in L.A. Metro bus injury claims is our ability to quickly gather and carefully evaluate evidence.
If you were injured while riding an L.A. metro bus, call (866) 634-4525 today to discuss your case.
Fighting for Victims of Metro Bus Accidents
When you board a Los Angeles MTA bus, you expect that you will be safely transported to your destination by the driver. In general, public transportation is one of the safest ways to travel, as drivers must meet a high standard to operate a public transport vehicle. Because public buses rarely have seatbelts or other occupant safety devices in place, however, even minor collisions can be catastrophic or fatal for passengers.
Bicyclists, pedestrians, scooter riders, and even other vehicle drivers can also sustain life-altering, disfiguring injuries in a bus crash caused by negligence.
At Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, we have achieved results in MTA bus accident cases involving:
- Tourists injured in bus accidents
- MTA bus sideswiping a motorcyclist
- MTA bus pulling out into traffic and hitting a car or bike
- MTA bus hitting a pedestrian
Investigating an MTA Bus Accident
If negligence played a role in your MTA bus accident injuries, you could be eligible to seek damages from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and other responsible parties. Of course, this process can often be complicated, and you will need an attorney with experience filing suit against local and government authorities.
When you work with Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP on your bus injury claim, we can rely on an in-house investigative team to gather and preserve physical evidence in a proprietary evidence warehouse. This team collects statements from witnesses, stores damaged vehicles and bikes, and gathers onboard video and data from the MTA vehicle tracking system.
In these cases, onboard videotapes are particularly valuable. In one past case, our client suffered a subdural hematoma (blood in the brain) leading to severe brain damage and paralysis when the bus in which he was riding hit a parked truck. The onboard videotape demonstrated how violently our client had been thrown around inside the bus – and why his injuries were so serious.
While the evidence in that case was compelling, we often need to use models, accident reconstructions, computer simulations and other forms of demonstration to help juries understand how the MTA bus collision occurred.
