Prior this particular accident the loved one of our client was dropped off by a friend. She was in the process of trying to cross the street from one side to the other within the crosswalk. The defense argued the client ran into the crosswalk trying to get on another bus which is why their bus driver did not have the time to react and stop the bus. We contended that he had enough time to adjust and stop the bus. This is a case in which a Los Angeles wrongful death lawyer must use their experience and knowledge.

When the bus driver made the turn he ended up hitting the client and running her over. Unfortunately, when the bus driver hit the client he stopped on top of her body. She died as a result of not being able to breathe. In the end the MTA decided they wanted to settle the case.
