CANOGA PARK: Metro Bus, Shuttle Van Crash Nordhoff Street

metro bus accident canoga parkCANOGA PARK, California (June 7, 2017) — As many as eight people were possibly injured in a collision when a shuttle bus carrying elderly passengers rear-ended a Metro Transit Bus at 21400 Nordoff Street, according to a report by the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The crash took place about 9:12 a.m. this morning at Canoga Avenue. The LAFD responded and assessed eight people including a woman with a left arm injury, but it’s unknown whether anyone was hospitalized.  The report stated there were no passengers on the Metro bus and the shuttle was occupied by elderly passengers.

Police closed down at least one lane of the roadway and delays and congestion should be expected in the area as they conduct an investigation into liability.

If a bus passenger or motorist is injured in a collision, it’s important that immediate steps are taken to ensure you get the medical treatment necessary for a full recovery and the deserved compensation for all your financial losses. Delaying treatment or not reporting your injuries right away, can significantly impact the value of your case.

It’s very common for vehicles and buses to collide due to traffic congestion in this part of Canoga Park near the Metro transportation facility, but also because some bus drivers or motorists are distracted or do not drive safely. Nordoff Street has had its share of collisions over the years including one involving a DUI driver that caused significant injuries a few years ago. While it may not be possible to avoid a crash, you can take steps to protect your legal rights.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
