When you step onto a public bus, get in a taxi or rely on other types of public transportation, you are entitled to know that you are not putting yourself at risk of injury. Public transportation agencies and private companies are required to take measures to protect their riders from unsafe conditions, as much as possible, and can be held to a higher standard than ordinary negligence when such claims are pursued properly. If you were injured while using public transportation in California, you may have a valid claim for significant financial compensation.

“Our lawyers are trial professionals — we are not a settlement negotiations mill. We thoroughly investigate the evidence and prepare every case to take before a judge and jury. This often leads to full and fair compensation out of court, so trial is not necessary. Opposing attorneys know we come prepared with experience, knowledge and skill.”Attorney Brian Easton
We recently settled a wrongful death case for $2.75 million.The decedent was 55 years old with no wife or children, just two surviving parents in their 80’s. Normally a jury, and therefore a defendant, would not pay more than $500,000 to 80-year-old parents for the death of their 55-year-old son where they suffered no economic losses as a result of their son’s passing. But because we were able to demonstrate the unique bond these parents shared with their son by persuasively telling their story, we were able to significantly increase the value of the negotiated settlement. The insurance company knew that taking the elderly couple’s case before a jury could result in a substantially higher verdict based on our preparation. Consequently, we were able to settle the case for an amount far in excess of our clients’ wildest dreams without them having to go through the pain and ordeal of a lengthy trial
