Providing Skilled Representation To People Injured In Bus Accidents
OmniTrans provides public transportation to people throughout the San Bernardino Valley. According to its own marketing materials, OmniTrans buses serve approximately 16 million passengers every year. Obviously, the vast majority of these trips proceed without incident. When buses get into accidents, they can harm other drivers, passengers on the bus and even pedestrians.
On the surface, a bus accident may appear to be like other types of motor vehicle accidents. In fact, however, the legal and procedural issues in these accidents make them quite different. If you were injured in a bus accident, it is especially important to have lawyers on your side with the necessary skill and experience.
At SANFORD A. KASSEL, A Professional Law Corporation, our attorneys have valuable experience taking on all types of personal injury claims. Sanford and Gavin Kassel are a father-and-son team of lawyers who continue a legacy of legal service to the injured in Southern California, spanning more than 50 years.
Holding Public Transportation Agencies Accountable
Bus accidents can have any number of causes, including:
- Inadequate Driver Training
- Defective Equipment
- Driver Impairment
Whatever the cause, cases involving a public transportation agency, such as OmniTrans, are especially complex. For one, there are certain exemptions, possible immunities and notices that apply to these claims. Secondly, cases involving mass transit companies involve common carrier laws, which are unique in many ways. Our attorneys understand how to account for these issues and will carefully develop the appropriate strategies.
If we have to bring your case before a judge and jury, you can be confident in our courtroom experience. Sanford A. Kassel has tried more than 100 cases before a jury, and he thoroughly understands how to present a case that will convince a jury it has merit.
