$350k Settlement for a Bus Passenger Injury - Adamson Ahdoot LLP

$350k Settlement for a Bus Passenger Injury

Our client was a passenger of an Omni Trans Bus #1330 stopped for a red light at the intersection of Foothill Boulevard and North San Antonio Street in California. The driver of the bus accelerated without paying attention to the traffic ahead, suddenly slammed the brakes, and rear-ended a vehicle in the front. Upon impact, our client propelled forward and struck her chin and left shoulder onto a bar of the bus. The driver of the bus admitted that he was distracted at the time of the collision. As a result, our client sustained a large bruise on their chin.

The defendant driver breached these duties when they acted unreasonably, carelessly, recklessly, and negligently under the circumstances, thereby forcefully causing this collision. The defendant’s failure to keep a proper lookout for conditions of the road violated statutes and resulted in the collision.

Our client was obeying all laws at the time of the collision and was acting reasonably under the circumstances, consequently alleviating any comparative negligence issues.

It was abundantly clear that liability solely rested with the defendant. Liability was indisputable in this case. As such, our client was entitled to full compensation for all economic and non-economic damages proximately caused by the defendant driver’s negligence.
