The Compensation You Deserve

The attorneys representing a bus company or an insurance provider are never looking out for your best interest. They may put on a friendly face and convince you that a quick settlement is best, but their main objective is to settle the claim for as little as possible. Their only considerations in a bus accident settlement is to get the matter resolved at the earliest possible date, to keep the damages down to an absolute minimum, and to avoid any bad press for their company.

Without a personal injury attorney on your side, it is nearly impossible to demand the compensation you deserve. The settlement offered by the responsible party may seem reasonable and even favorable to your interests, but hiring an experienced bus accident attorney will proportionately increase your chances of gaining the restitution that you deserve.

The May Firm’s bus accident attorneys will work to make sure you are compensated for all costs and losses resulting from the injuries you sustained. Some common costs and losses include medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and future medical costs. Injuries resulting from bus accidents can be severe and life-altering. The treatment for these injuries can quickly add up to tens of thousands of dollars. Victims of injuries resulting from bus accidents do not deserve to pay for damages resulting from the accidents. Let The May Firm fight for your right to fair compensation.

California Bus Accident Law

The population of California and the number of bus services in operation make it inevitable that accidents will frequently occur. Companies like the Los Angeles MTA, the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus, the Antelope Valley Transit, and the Foothill Transit all are required by law to keep million-dollar insurance policies for their drivers and their vehicles. These insurance policies cover personal injury, lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.

A responsible owner of the bus will use its lawyers to make every effort to ensure that responsibility of the accident does not fall onto the owner. It is the responsibility of the injured victim of the bus accident to bring a case against the responsible party, or else the victim will end up with no compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney can be the difference between a major settlement, sometimes in the millions of dollars, and coming away with barely enough to pay your hospital bills.

Steps To Take After a Bus Accident

If you have been injured in a bus collision, you can gain a considerable financial settlement by hiring The May Firm to represent you for your injuries. The May Firm understands that injuries resulting from a bus accident affect not only the victim, but also the victim’s family. We will take into consideration the entire repercussions of your injuries to ensure you are awarded with what you deserve. You do not have to suffer from the burden on your injuries.

It is extremely important to contact a bus accident injury lawyer immediately following the accident. The state of California places a statute of limitations on bus injury claims. The statute of limitations is a strict bracket of time during which a claim can be filed to receive compensation. Once the statute of limitations expires, it is impossible for a victim to file for compensation.

Clients Testimonials

frequently asked questions

The attorneys at May Firm answer questions clients frequently ask about motor vehicle accidents and wrongful death claims in California.

When you are injured in an accident that was not caused by your fault, the most important thing you can do is take care of yourself. It can be very difficult, if not nearly impossible, to navigate through the accident claim process on your own. Insurance companies often attempt to settle cases as quickly as possible to avoid paying further medical fees for innocent victims like you. By hiring a personal injury lawyer, you can focus on getting back on your feet and you can trust that your legal battle is being fought by knowledgeable attorneys. As you heal from your physical and emotional injuries, an attorney will fight the insurance companies and the person who is at fault for the accident to get you the compensation you deserve. The personal injury attorneys at The May Firm have extensive knowledge on a variety of personal injury cases, as well as how the law applies to each individual case. You will not be taken advantage of by an insurance company with the guidance and support of an attorney. The May Firm will be a powerful advocate working for you.

An experienced personal injury attorney will work tirelessly to maximize the value of your case. Not hiring an attorney can be, and usually is, a major mistake. Unintentional legal mistakes occur during the first call or visit with the claims adjuster. Insurance adjusters are trained to ask certain questions that could pose problems for your case later. They are also trained to offer a small settlement amount right up front. Unfortunately, some people agree to the small up-front settlement and regret it later when they have on-going medical issues.

The May Firm offers clients a free, no-obligation initial consultation. During our first discussion together, our experienced personal injury attorneys will take the time to ask you questions. We will ask for details regarding the accident that led to your personal injury, in addition to information about the injuries you suffered due to the accident. The questions are asked in an effort to determine the viability of your case. If we determine that you have a solid case, we will help you gather police reports, photos, wage loss information, billing statements and medical records, all of which will help us build a solid foundation for your specific case.

A personal injury lawyer should be called whenever you experience an injury due to someone else’s negligence. Common personal injury cases may include: motorcycle accidents, car accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, dog bites, construction accidents, and injuries due to a defective product. It doesn’t matter if your injury is minor or severe, a personal injury attorney can help you manage claims against your insurance company, or the insurance company of the person who is responsible for the accident. An attorney will act as your advocate during this difficult time to ensure your rights are protected and fought for. The personal injury attorneys at The May Firm can also assist you in recovering damages for your time spent out of work due to your injury.

Our first meeting with potential clients is always a free consultation. There is no obligation to continue working together if the fit is not right. During the free consultation, an attorney at The May Firm will sit down with you and will ask you many questions to find out every detail about your situation. We will ask about how the accident happened, what injuries you suffered as a result of the accident, and what your life is like as you recover and heal from your physical injuries. We will also determine if you have a case. If we determine that you have a case, we will go over the next steps with you, including a list of documents you will need to gather for us to use as a starting point in building a strong case for you.
