Personal Injury Bus Accident Lawyers in Los Angeles

If you or a loved one was injured in a bus accident, contact our team of professional personal injury bus accident lawyers at Akiva Niamehr LLP. Bus accidents are increasingly common at intersections, crosswalks, near schools with school buses and potentially injured children.

Sadly, such accidents have the potential to do major damage given the scope, size and nature of buses and what they collide with. Even a bus that comes to an abrupt stop to avoid an accident could potentially injure its passengers, or someone who is thrown from their seat as a result of or due to the impact. The longer the bus, perhaps, the greater the whiplash.

What Typically Causes a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Brain injuries are my nature traumatic. They occur when an individual slips and falls, but in other instances occur when external pressure to the head is so extreme. This scenario occurs often in truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and other motor vehicle accidents. If a car flips over and the person’s head is jolted or subdued under the weight of something heavy, a brain injury can result. Of course, concussions can be a secondary diagnosis as well in those situations. In addition, contusions, Coup-Contrecoup Injuries, Diffuse Axonal Injury and damage to the skull can also result.

Brain injuries typically vary in severity. With mild cases of brain injuries showing signs of discomfort and temporary brain impairment or dysfunction, more disastrous cases have permanent damage. With severe traumatic brain injury comes a lifetime of pain and emotional suffering that results from tissue damage, internal bleeding and other brain damage.

If you or a loved one were involved in an accident so severe as to cause brain injury, you must seek medical treatment right away. This is crucial to having a fighting chance to save or repair any damage or lack of oxygen going to the brain.

Were you Injured in an 18 Wheeler Accident?

Fatal truck accidents occur on the roads in the United States every day. An approximate 400,000+ number of trucking accidents including commercial trucks and tractors occur every year. With such numbers, unfortunately the injuries to passengers and drivers alike proportionally rise in 18 wheeler accidents.

Because of the large scale and massive weight of these trucks, the driver of an 18 wheeler typically does not have ample time or opportunity to correct course if an accident has begun. So many laws have been passed in the state of California regarding weight and size of trucks for precisely this reason. If the driver of the 18 wheeler has failed to break in a timely manner or made such a wide turn as to collide into a compact vehicle, the damage is usually done. This is why driving trucks and larger vehicles of this nature like big rigs and semi-trucks require great caution, care and diligence.

There are many concerns that can come to mind when driving an 18 wheeler or big rig. One of which is drivers of such vehicles falling asleep behind the wheel when traveling large distances or cross country. Often times, drivers work for commercial companies or food chains and must drive for hours at a time or days at a time. Many of our clients at Akiva Niamehr LLP, were sadly injured in an accident with a big rig or 18 wheeler.

Burn Injuries and How They Influence Your Life Permanently

Getting injured by a burn is something that can literally last a lifetime. It is intensely painful, and the victims of burns may even have to deal with pain for the rest of their life as a result. In fact, certain burn injuries can cause a person to have their life shortened as a result. Depending on the nature and extent of the burn, ranging all the way from first-degree burns to sixth-degree burn injuries, can definitely influence your mobility and recovery. This is why those who have been burned through no fault of their own ought to seek out a burn injury attorney at Akiva Niamehr LLP as soon as possible to help both with your medical treatment and your legal claim.

Factors Considered when Monetary Damages are Determined

Los Angeles personal injury lawyers at Akiva Niamehr LLP will consider several factors when evaluating and analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of your legal case. Doing so will enable them to roughly estimate and determine how much compensation an individual suffering from burn injuries may be able to recover from the insurance company for their bodily injury, physical harm, medical treatment, lost income and pain and suffering.

It is going to hinge on these types of factors:

  • Duty Owed- There is some chance that an individual may be burned by a piece of equipment. If that does happen, then they may be able to go after the manufacturer of the equipment for liability for the accident as well.
  • Direct Cause- Was the accident the direct reason why the client ended up with burns or was it just a contributing factor? This is something that is going to weigh heavily in the courtroom.
  • Severity Of The Injury- The amount of damage done to one’s body in general. It is fair to say that the more severe the burn injury, the more likely a jury is to award compensation, and perhaps even a lot of it. For example, a third, fourth, fifth or sixth-degree burn mean significant injury occurred and elevate the bodily injury portion of the case to a higher level. Where recklessness is involved, litigation may not even be necessary because negligence may be assumed by the insurance company adjuster. The outcome of your settlement really depends on the facts of your case which is why retaining a capable burn accident injury attorney from Akiva Niamehr LLP will help you get your life back on track.

All of these factors may be reviewed with an attorney to determine the validity of each and how much they may weigh on a case. The attorney may not be able to tell the client the exact amount that they will be compensated by a jury, but when all things are taken into account and consideration, the client will have a good idea of what he or she stands to recover in a settlement.

Children In Bus Accidents: More Common Than You Think

Did you know that there are an estimated 26,000 school bus accidents in the United States per year? That is a staggering statistic that should worry any parent who sends their child to school on a bus. There have been many times in which one of our Beverly Hills personal injury attorneys at Akiva Niamehr LLP has had to take on a case like this due to a child being injured in one of those accidents. Depending on the extent of the physical injury to the child, these cases are rigorously litigated and fought by our team of professionals.

Located in Los Angeles, California, Akiva Niamehr LLP has a team of expert bus accident attorneys standing by to help anyone who may find themselves facing this horrible situation and not knowing what steps to take. An attorney is key in these situations because he or she can take care of your legal claim from A to Z while scheduling and assisting the appropriate medical treatment for your loved one. In times of tragedy, assistance is useful to for those struggling with the fact that their child has been injured and may require extensive medical treatment for their condition.

Although school buses are considered to be one of the safest methods of transportation for children, the reality of your child being harmed in a bus can change your whole world in a split second. Many parents feel even worse if their child is injured this way because they weren’t there to protect them. We all expect the bus drivers to keep our children safe, but unfortunately, events play out in a way that is unforeseen and unexpected. Sometimes, children can even be injured by a school bus as a pedestrian crossing the street.

It is critical that anyone who has a child who is harmed in a bus accident pays special attention to documenting the child’s progress when it comes to their injuries and how they are progressing from them. Medical treatment is essential. Legal assistance is also a must.  The attorney can track and monitor the treatments, procedures and all other information necessary to make your claim against the liable party. This information will be critically important for the insurance companies that get involved.

Another step that all must take is to file a claim with their insurance as soon as they realize that their child has been injured. The sooner that this happens, the sooner the investigation of responsibility can begin and the sooner one can begin to get the justice that they deserve for what has happened to their child.

Important Documents to Obtain After A Beverly Hills, California Auto Accident

There is a particular document that most people forget when they are involved in an auto accident in Beverly Hills, California. The document is not what you may be thinking of. You see, most people remember to bring some documentation or information when they speak with a car accident attorney. They will remember something like the police report, but they often forget the declaration page that is on their own insurance policy indicating their own policy’s limits and available coverage.

What Is This Declaration Page of an Insurance Policy?

It is a single sheet of paper that can impact the outcome of your lawsuit should you try to pursue one. It has plenty of information for those who know what they are looking at. It is essentially a summary of all of the coverage that you have in your car insurance policy, including property damage, Medical Payments, collision, comprehensive and more. That is important because having some coverage or not can really tilt your case one way or the other in the state of California.

Of course, your attorney once retained will have access and be in most communications with both your own insurance company and the defendant or the at-fault third-party’s insurance company. If you have a copy of your insurance policy at home, you may be able to identify and locate the Declaration page of the policy. You can then take it to your attorney should you meet with them or have a consultation. Our team of car and motorcycle accident lawyers at Akiva Niamehr LLP can obtain a copy of your Declaration page from your own insurance company once retained as your attorney of record. This will allow us to see what coverage is available to you, and advise you regarding the medical treatment you should obtain. This is especially important when the other person involved in the accident is uninsured.

Understanding How Much You Could Potentially Win

Insurance coverage is important in determining how much you could potentially win if your claim or lawsuit is successful. It is also a critical factor in the team’s determination of how much medical treatment should be received. Most attorneys are going to go after the maximum that the other driver’s insurance has them covered for. Your own insurance policy information is important to bring along with you as well, but the other driver’s insurance is critical as well. Your attorney will gather all necessary information from the insurance companies, the DMV, the Police Department, witnesses and anything else they deem necessary to strengthen your claim and case.
