Glendale Bus Crash Injury LawyerBus accidents can be devastating, causing severe injuries and even fatalities. Los Angeles, known for its bustling traffic and extensive public transportation system, experiences its fair share of bus accidents for various reasons. If you have suffered an injury on a bus in Los Angeles, contact an experienced lawyer for the legal guidance you need to pursue the compensation to which you may be entitled. 

Four Reasons Bus Accidents Happen in Los Angeles

  1. Negligence – One of the primary causes of bus accidents in Los Angeles is negligence, which can occur at various levels. This includes the negligence of bus drivers, who may be fatigued, distracted, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Negligence can also be attributed to bus companies that fail to maintain their vehicles or provide adequate driver training properly. Please keep in mind that if a person is injured and wishes to pursue compensation in California, it must first be determined whether a private company or a government organization operated the bussing company. In cases where a government organization operated the bus, individuals must follow procedures detailed in the California Tort Claims Act, which dictates that civil lawsuits against government organizations must take place within six months of the injury taking place. 

  2. Distracted driving – With the increasing prevalence of smartphones and other electronic devices, distracted driving has become a significant concern. Bus drivers might be tempted to use their phones or engage in other distracting activities while operating the vehicle, leading to a higher risk of accidents.


CA injury lawyerAs the sun shines brightly upon Los Angeles County, residents eagerly embrace the warm weather by heading outdoors with their four-legged companions. However, with the arrival of summer comes a concerning trend – research shows an increase in dog bites. The rising temperatures and heightened outdoor activities may contribute to a surge in dog-related injuries. In this blog, we will explore your rights after a dog bite, the laws in place, and the penalties that dog owners may face.

Why Do Dog Bites Spike During Hot Temperatures?

Summer encourages more outdoor gatherings, picnics, and recreational activities, which, in turn, results in more interactions between dogs and people. Perhaps as temperatures soar, dogs may become more irritable or overstimulated at a park bustling with activity. Dogs can become overwhelmed and may react defensively.

Laws Regarding Dog Bites

In California, you have the right to pursue legal action against the dog owner for the injuries and damages you sustained as a result of a dog bite. The law prioritizes the safety and well-being of the person bitten by a dog. The following laws are in place to protect those who have suffered injuries from a dog attack:


CA injury lawyerThe number of Americans who are 65 years old or older is expected to double from 52 million in 2018 to 95 million in 2060. By 2030, more than one million seniors will need help with self-care. That is likely to increase the demand for nursing home care. Regrettably, there is also a staffing shortage at nursing homes across the nation leading to improper supervision and nursing home abuse. If your family member has suffered injuries while being cared for at one of these facilities you have options.

Immediate Actions

If you suspect nursing home abuse of your loved one you need to take immediate action. People who have endured nursing home abuse in California have legal remedies available to seek justice and compensation. They may file a civil lawsuit against the facility or individuals responsible for the abuse.

Adult Protective Services or the local law enforcement agency should be informed. Additionally, documenting any evidence of abuse, including photographs, medical records, and witness statements, can be valuable in supporting an abuse claim. It is advisable to consult with an attorney experienced in elder law or nursing home abuse cases to understand your legal options as it can get complicated.


IL injury lawyerYou may have seen the headlines in California about electric vehicles suddenly catching on fire. By 2025 one in ten cars will be electric. But firefighters are finding it harder to extinguish fires created by electric car batteries. That is because some 25,000 gallons of water are needed to extinguish a car when it erupts into flames compared to 300 gallons of water for a gas-powered vehicle. While this is not a common occurrence, if it happens to you or a loved one, you may be wondering, who should be held accountable for your personal injuries?

Defective Batteries

When safety measures fail you, you and your loved ones deserve legal representation to attain adequate compensation. If you are injured in an electric car fire, you may have a claim against the car makers and battery manufacturers.

Nowadays, lithium-ion batteries are the most commonly used and they are not the same as the traditional lead batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are stronger and can be charged faster. The battery is made up of thousands of cells so when the energy cells are damaged, the battery’s temperature rises to extremely high levels, causing the battery to catch on fire. Most firefighters are not well equipped to carry 25 thousand gallons of water to extinguish the resilient fires created by electric cars.


CA injury lawyerSports activities are important to keep kids healthy and for them to learn about teamwork. However, sports injuries are a reality. In California, when you play sports you are required to sign a waiver thereby assuming the risk of harm. So, if your child is injured while playing soccer you cannot sue the company or the player responsible. But what if the soccer field has gopher holes that can easily twist a player’s ankle or snap a knee? A recent study found that a top reason for soccer player injuries is inadequate sports facilities with soccer athletes suffering the highest rate of injuries. If you have suffered a personal injury due to an improperly maintained field you may have a premises liability case and Tahmazian Law Firm, P.C. can help.

School Fields

A school has a duty of care to provide athletes with well-maintained facilities. If a soccer field has any holes in the field that could cause an athlete to trip or worse, break an ankle, it is the obligation of the school to quickly fill those holes. Premises liability laws apply to property owners, business owners, and public parks. The laws are in place so that owners adhere to a legal duty of care and ensure that the premises are safe.

Park Fields and Who Bears Responsibility?

When it comes to public parks it is the responsibility of federal, state, and local government officials to properly maintain those parks depending on who has jurisdiction, to ensure the safety of public park visitors. When a government agency fails to uphold its responsibility to keep park visitors safe, it may be considered negligent. If injuries occur, you may receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. You will need to file a claim which can be complicated without the proper legal guidance. Government entities may be entitled to immunity from lawsuits unless certain procedures are followed. Some legal steps must first be taken.
