Designed to be a workman’s paradise, the City of Torrance was built to be the perfect marriage between residential areas and industry. Moreover, an intrinsic part of what makes this marriage work is transportation. As a result, everyday countless residents rely on bus transportation to get to school, work, and for shopping and other activities. Unfortunately, much in like every happy marriage, problems do occasionally arise. Namely, we’re looking at bus accidents. One may think that one is relatively safe in Torrance, given its low crime rate, but if you’re in a bus or driving near a bus you may want to think again. Just in March of 2018, a bus from the Torrance Unified School District crashed into a Mercedes S-Class sedan on Emerald Street, west of Anza Avenue.

This minimizes your chances to get a fair compensation for you and/or your loved ones. There are many factors that can bring liability to the bus driver. For example, a driver may be liable as a result of: driver error, impairment, defective equipment, failure to follow traffic rules and signs, safety violations, improper use of lanes, improper stops, speeding, etc. You need an experienced bus accident lawyer to gather the real facts, recreate the accident and represent you by putting your best foot forward.

For example, school buses are now mandated to come with a three-point harness when manufactured after 2005. Nonetheless, public transit buses usually lack this feature, in fact, many even have to ride standing up. This is especially dangerous if the bus is involved in a sudden stop or an accident.
