If you have been injured in an accident while a passenger on a bus, train, or trolley, or if you have been injured in a collision with one, it is imperative that you contact an experienced bus accident lawyer, as you may be entitled to a cash settlement for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost earnings, and other expenses.
Our federal and state governments heavily regulate common carriers—such as busses, trains, and trolleys. Noncompliance with safety laws may result in their complete liability for your personal injuries. Our firm can advise you as to your rights. Gordon Levinson is an aggressive personal injury lawyer who represents injured bus accident victims for a contingent fee, which means that we only charge a fee if we win you a judgment or a cash settlement.

Buses carry approximately 360 million passengers every year over a total of 28 billion miles. There are over 50,000 bus accidents each year resulting in over 20,000 injuries and an average of 30 fatalities. Buses are involved in accidents for the same reasons that cars are, but because of their larger size and greater number of passengers, the chances of a bus accident resulting in multiple casualties is larger.
There are fewer accidents today involving train passengers because there just aren’t that many passenger trains. However, accidents involving freight trains are more common. There are over 600 railroads and more than 200,000 miles of track. On average there are 3,000 train accidents and over 1,000 deaths caused by trains each year.
The most common causes of train accidents in the United States include:
Some railroad or trolley crossings are unreasonably dangerous. According to the Federal Highway Administration, a train strikes a vehicle or a pedestrian at a rail crossing every two hours in the United States. A motorist or pedestrian who becomes involved in a collision at these crossings may be entitled to compensation.
If your injuries were caused by inadequate, faulty or poorly maintained grade crossing protection, call the Levinson Law Group at (760) 642-5475 to schedule a free consultation with a bus accident lawyer today.

Gordon and his team were so helpful after my accident. Carmela was primarily my contact and she answered all of my questions and would check up on me to see if needed anything. My whole experience with this team was great and they got my medical bills all settled after my accident. I would definitely use them again but hopefully I won’t need too.
Great service, met Gordon personally on a Saturday as we live in LA. Total loss wreck worked out a favorable settlement and reduced expenses. Orlando was a breath of fresh air, took good care everything concerning paperwork. I expect we will use Levinson Law Group for any legal issues.
