Driver runs red light and strikes Southern California bus

The driver and two passengers in a bus were recently injured in Montclair after a car reportedly ran a red light. The accident occurred at 11:19 a.m., and the bus in question provided transportation for individuals in San Bernardino County.

After the car collided with the bus, it appears that the bus then ran into a power pole. Fortunately, none of its six passengers suffered what were called serious or life threatening injuries.

This is just one of many accidents that happen in Southern California every day. Though injuries are not always described as being extremely serious in nature, individuals injured may still end up expending thousands of dollars in medical bills, be forced to take off time from work, and even suffer lingering pain that may go on for quite some time.

Individuals that just happen to be riding upon a bus should not be forced to pay for expenses that come about due to someone else's carelessness. These individuals are deserving of compensation, but they may not always know all of their legal options.

Personal injury attorneys will handle cases for clients injured in car accidents or other motor vehicle collisions. This can sometimes means investigating how the accident occurred, negotiating with responsible parties and insurance companies, and even trying such matters in court.

There really is no such thing as a minor motor vehicle accident where an injury occurs. A twinge to the back or the neck may result in a permanent medical condition. It's for that reason that accident victims should at least speak to an attorney before signing any document that releases others from liability.
