Motor vehicle accidents can happen to any type of vehicle, even airport and commute shuttles. Accidents involving these types of vehicles often result in greater injuries to the victims because the passenger vans are heavier and distribute great force. The unexpected nature of any type of motor vehicle collision that causes serious injuries can put the individual’s life on hold. The physical and emotional recovery comes with great financial burden for both the victims and their loved ones.
At the Law Offices of Samer Habbas, our Orange County airport shuttle accident attorneys have the experience, knowledge and resources to hold major companies, businesses, and even government entities responsible for their negligent behaviors that caused your injuries.
Holding The Right Parties Responsible In an Airport Shuttle Accident
If you were injured in an accident that was caused by the negligent actions of an airport shuttle van, you will be able to file a claim and will most likely be successful in recovering compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of wages and other out of pocket expenses.
If you were the passenger in an airport shuttle van when the accident occurred, the case may be more complicated. Commuter shuttle companies are considered “common carriers.” This means that they have a heightened duty to make sure that their passengers are safe during the ride. In order to obtain monetary compensation for your injuries, your Orange County airport shuttle attorney will need to prove that the shuttle company breached its duty of “utmost care” to you, the passenger.
Common Airport Shuttle Accident Injuries
Airport shuttles typically take a large number of passengers to and from the airport. As useful as these large commuter vans may be in transporting people, they can also cause serious injuries to the passengers in the event of an accident. Common injuries stemming from airport shuttle accidents include:
- Head trauma
- Broken or fractured bones
- Neck and back injuries
- Muscle and soft tissue damage
Recovery from any of these injuries can be extensive and require expensive medical care and treatment. Hiring an experienced Orange County airport shuttle lawyer can be invaluable in ensuring that you obtain the full compensation that you deserve. The legal team at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas is experienced and has successfully represented commuter shuttle clients who have seriously been injured in accidents.

Airport SuperShuttle Transportation Accident Settled for $750,000
The Law Offices of Samer Habbas & Associates represented a client who was struck by a SuperShuttle Airport Transportation van in the city of Corona. Our client had mechanical issues with his vehicle that caused it to stop functioning on the roadway. While our client was pulled over onto the side of the road, he was struck in the rear by a SuperShuttle. The impact caused him to sustain neck and shoulder injuries resulting in cervical fusion neck surgery and shoulder surgery. Supershuttle denied responsibility for this accident and also argued that our client’s injuries were not caused by this collision and were preexisting in nature. Attorney Samer Habbas filed a lawsuit against SuperShuttle and underwent a very aggressive litigation strategy including multiple depositions and a very thorough inspection of the SuperShuttle. As a result of Attorney Habbas’ approach, the case resolved without trial in the amount of $750,000.00.
