Pasadena Bus Accident Attorney
About Bus Accidents
Though most people use their cars to take them where they want to go, there are still many who use public transpiration for commuting and traveling purposes. By statistic, buses are one of the safest types of transportation there is, but at the same time, it can be one of the most deadly when things go wrong. This is because safety precautions for passengers such as seatbelts and other measures are not required under current law. The majority of those injured are the elderly, handicapped passengers and young children.
School bus accident injuries are much higher than those sustained in other kinds of bus accidents. Many of the 450,000 school buses that children are carried on every day do not have seatbelts or restraint systems, causing 12,000 injuries each year. If you, your child or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident you will need sound legal representation. A Pasadena personal injury attorney with McGee, Lerer & Associates can provide the personal, caring, and competent advice you need during this difficult time
