OCTA Bus Accident Lawyer

Orange County Transportation Authority Injury Attorney

In 2005, OCTA was judged America's Best Public Transportation System by the American Public Transportation Association. Even with such accolades, like every public transit system, there have been accidents. In recent years, a number of OCTA buses have been involved in accidents with vans or cars. Two OCTA bus accidents with injuries involved the bus being hit by vans, with injuries to van occupants and to bus passengers.

The Orange County Transportation Authority injury attorneys at Greene, Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, represent people hurt in OCTA bus accidents. We also represent injured tourists and families who have lost a loved one in a fatal OCTA bus accident.

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in an OCTA bus accident, contact Greene Broillet & Wheeler for a free consultation.

We represent clients in the entire service area of the OCTA, which operates 77 bus lines within Orange County (from its offices in Anaheim, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, Orange and Irving), and express lines from Orange County to Lakewood, La Mirada, Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Diamond Bar, Chino Hills and Chino, Riverside and Corona. It also operates Metrolink commuter trains.

We Know Where to Look and What to Look For

Our success in bus accident cases is due, in part, to our extensive investigative resources and to our understanding of bus company policies and procedures. In 2007, OCTA began putting video cameras in buses, as well as GPS to record bus positioning. Our in-house investigative team knows how to obtain and preserve this evidence for later use in trial.

Our team of in-house investigators will study the onboard video, examine the accident scene, and interview witnesses to determine how the accident occurred. We then put together a compelling presentation of the evidence that allows a jury to understand how the injuries occurred and the impact that these injuries will have on the life of our client.

If you were injured by the negligence of an OCTA bus driver, we will aggressively seek compensation for you. We understand the special challenges of bringing a case against a government entity. If the accident was caused by another driver who hit the OCTA bus, we can seek compensation from that driver's insurance company.
