Bus Accident Case Results
We think results speak louder than words and just a few examples of our results in bus cases, include:
In 2005, Arash Homampour obtained a $12 million verdict from a Norwalk jury in a case against the LACMTA when its speeding bus crashed into a pick up truck being driven by Plaintiff Ramon Melendez (a 63 year old construction worker from El Salvador).
This was another extremely difficult liability case as Plaintiff had backed out of a driveway with a BAC of .26 when he was struck by the bus. Arash effectively shifted the jurors obvious focus on the fact that Plaintiff was intoxicated to the bus driver’s role in speeding.
In 2007, Arash Homampour settled a very tough liability bus versus pedestrian case for $5.75 million where a pedestrian entered the street against a red light and the driver had the right of way. However, Arash was able to establish that the bus driver had enough time to perceive, react and avoid hitting the pedestrian but was not using reasonable care.
In 2009, Arash Homampour settled a virtually impossible liability wrongful death action for $1.25 million against a bus operator where a disembarking customer who had a .45 BAC (legally dead) was run over by the bus after he fell against it. The customer later died and his treating doctor testified (independent of the bus incident) that he had less than 6 months to live as a result of liver failure.
But, Arash was able to establish that elderly, disabled and even drunk people rely on bus transportation, that the bus operators knew this and that the bus drive broke the rules because he did not make sure the decedent was clear of the bus before starting to drive away.
