MTA Bus Accident Causing Amputation

Bus Crash Door - Law Offices of David Azizi

David Azizi has handled many cases involving negligence by MTA bus drivers. For example, one case involved a disputed bus vs pedestrian accident, and David’s client underwent an amputation of his leg due to the severity of the accident. The victim claimed he had a green crosswalk sign and he had the right to proceed through the crosswalk. The bus driver, who tried to beat the light and ended up crashing into him, denied the pedestrian’s testimony. However, David proved that the bus driver was not telling the truth and the pedestrian was awarded a sizable settlement. While each case is different the methods of proving negligence remain the same. Without proof, no case would have a favorable outcome.

Witness testimony is an essential part of any case. Documenting it early is best since witness memory can fade with time. In fact, one witness’s memory and hence testimony might differ from another. The testimony might also change with time. David uses interrogatories and depositions, to document witness accounts. He does this as quickly as possible after the accident before memory fades.

Proving Fault With a Los Angeles MTA Bus Accident Lawyer

When an individual causes an accident, he or she may be negligent. It is not enough to claim that this is so. Rather, a lawyer must prove that not only was the person negligent but that the negligence caused harm to another person, resulting in financial loss. David Azizi uses evidence such as:
– Photos of the accident, including tire tracts
– Witness accounts
– Documentation of physical injury
– Interrogatories (written questions a person must answer under oath)
– Depositons (in-person questions under oath – not in court)
– Accident reconstruction reports
– Expert witnesses

Fatigue and Scheduling Affects Bus Accidents

MTA bus accidents are quite common in the City of Los Angeles as the bus schedule never stops. Even on holiday weekends like Memorial Day, Labor Day and July 4th bus drivers will be working. Unfortunately, some of these bus drivers are trying to get as many hours as they can as they jump into longer shifts. While the money may be very good they don’t realize just how tired they can get after working 10 to 14 hour shifts several times a week.
