Shortly before 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 2nd, eight people were injured in a collision involving two vehicles and an MTA bus in Woodland Hills. The collision occurred in the 22000 block of West Sherman Way. Paramedics transported the eight injured people to the hospital, one of them in critical condition. Authorities are investigating the accident.
“After an accident resulting in injury, the victims may seek compensation from the negligent driver for expenses associated with their recovery,” explained California personal injury lawyer James Ballidis.
In Los Angeles County, 286 drivers and 104 passengers lost their lives and 43,120 drivers and 21,058 passengers were injured in traffic collisions in 2009, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. That year, there were 3,081 traffic fatalities in the state.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the eight people who were injured in the crash involving the MTA bus today.
