At about 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, September 2, seven people were injured in a bus crash in the Mid-City area of Los Angeles. The collision, which involved a Metro bus and another vehicle, occurred in the 1700 block of South Spaulding Avenue near the 10 Freeway. Emergency responders extricated two of the victims from the wreckage, transporting seven people to the hospital. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“When vehicle occupants are seriously hurt in a collision, they may seek compensation from the negligent driver,” explained California personal injury attorney James Ballidis, “including for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Traffic accidents that occurred throughout Los Angeles County in 2010 claimed the lives of or caused injury to 72,010 people, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. The OTS ranked Los Angeles 15th out of 58 counties for its incidence of fatal and injury collisions that year; 1st place is the worst ranking possible.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the seven people who were injured in the bus crash last Sunday morning.
