If you’ve found yourself injured as a passenger in a Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) bus accident, navigating the aftermath can feel overwhelming. However, you don’t have to face this situation alone. Kash Legal Group is here to provide the support and legal assistance you need during this challenging time.

Understanding Your Rights as a Passenger

As a passenger on a LACMTA bus involved in an accident, you have legal rights to seek compensation for your injuries. California law holds public transportation operators, like LACMTA, to a high standard of care for the safety of their passengers. This duty includes ensuring proper training of drivers, regular maintenance of vehicles, and adherence to traffic laws.

Immediate Steps to Take

  1. Seek Medical Attention: Your health and well-being are the top priority. Even if your injuries seem minor, it’s crucial to seek medical attention promptly. Not only does this ensure you receive necessary treatment, but it also creates a medical record documenting your injuries, which can be vital for your claim later on.
  2. Report the Accident: Inform the bus driver or other authorities at the scene about the accident. They will document the incident, which can serve as valuable evidence for your case.
  3. Gather Evidence: If possible, gather evidence at the scene, such as photographs of the accident, your injuries, and contact information of any witnesses. This information can strengthen your claim.
  4. Keep Records: Keep all medical records, receipts for expenses related to your injuries, and any communication regarding the accident. These documents will be essential when seeking compensation for your damages.
