Who Is To Blame When Bus Accidents In Redondo Beach Happen?  

Most local residents remember the tragic 2015 case of an older couple struck by a bus while crossing a street in Riviera Village. The man was killed instantly while his partner suffered debilitating personal injuries. Just several years later, a 13-year-old girl was killed in a bus accident in Redondo Beach while riding her bike near the northwest corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Knob Hill Avenue. Her family took both the bus company and the city to court and were recently awarded more than $21 million in damages.  

Even in non-fatal bus accidents, personal injuries you suffer can impact you and your family for years into the future. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our Redondo Beach bus accident attorneys help you determine who is to blame. This may include:  

  • The bus driver,  due to speeding, failing to yield, driving distracted, and other reckless behavior; 
  • Other bus company employees,  such as for failing to properly maintain the fleet; 
  • The bus company itself, for actions such as overscheduling drivers and routes; 
  • Government and community leaders, for failing to provide proper infrasture and oversight to ensure passenger and community safety.  

What Are My Rights In Filing A Lawsuit After A Bus Accident In Redondo Beach?  

Under Section 1714 of the California Civil Code, everyone is responsible not only for willful actions that cause personal injuries to others but for failing to take reasonable precautions to prevent them. When bus accidents in Redondo Beach happen, you have the right to hold those at fault responsible.   

The first step generally involves filing a claim against the bus company and their insurer. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our legal team acts as a strong legal advocate on your side, aggressively negotiating to get you the maximum amount in any settlements. If your claim is disputed or your losses severe, our Redondo Beach bus accident attorneys will not hesitate in taking those at-fault to court. Compensation available in a bus accident lawsuit includes:  

  • Economic damages, which include current and future medical expenses, lost wages, and other actual costs you or your family incur; 
  • Non-economic damages, which compensate you for pain, suffering, and any loss of enjoyment in life you experience; 
  • Punitive damages, which is an additional amount we can push for if those at fault are guilty of gross negligence. It serves to punish those involved, preventing others from engaging in similar behavior.
