Practice Area : Bus Accidents
Accidents involving public and private bus services and school buses are often extremely serious. Because of California’s rapid growth, and the growth of the Oakland Area in particular, the number of school and city buses is growing as well. More transit riders and students means a greater chance for accidents and injuries.
California’s highways are also frequently used by Greyhound buses, charter buses, and others, and are the sites of sometimes deadly crashes. The congestion associated with California’s population growth unfortunately increases the frequency of these horrific accidents.
A Northern California bus and school bus accident lawyer from our firm can help pursue legal action in these cases. The law firm of Gillin, Jacobson, Ellis, Larsen & Lucey has handled bus accident lawsuits throughout Oakland and Northern California for over thirty years. Our Northern California bus and school bus accident lawyers have won significant monetary awards for our clients and their family members involved in bus accidents.
Parents and injured victims involved in bus accident cases should never agree to settle for any amount of money or services without first consulting a law firm for advice. Even if only to ask questions, it is essential to consult an experienced lawyer. In several cases, companies have settled for amounts that were dramatically smaller than a Northern California bus accident lawyer could have won in a lawsuit. Unscrupulous behavior by insurance companies and leasing corporations is common after a tragedy. Our law firm will fight for your rights against these sometimes unethical parties.
All bus and school bus accidents that take place in California involve complicated laws that should be handled by experienced lawyers. Our lawyers handle every bus accident lawsuit free of charge until we win or settle the case. If our attorneys fail to settle your bus accident lawsuit, you owe us nothing.
Because California law dictates that any bus or school bus accident lawsuit be filed within a certain time period, it is important to contact a law firm as soon after the accident as possible. While receiving medical attention should always be your first concern, contacting a Northern California bus or school bus accident attorney quickly should also be a priority. Even if the guilt or negligence is clear in a bus accident, a claim may not be made if it is filed after the statute of limitation has ended.
We can’t imagine how difficult this would have been for our family without GJEL in our corner.
