Lawsuit Filed Over Fall from Palo Alto Shuttle Bus Settled

On a school field trip in 2007, Palo Alto, California teen Rodolfo Flores boarded a city shuttle bus and congregated with several friends near the back of the vehicle. However, when the bus turned a corner, Flores fell through the rear door of the vehicle, sustaining several significant injuries in the process. Months later, Flores began experiencing neurological symptoms, including difficulty concentrating. The suit filed in the case claimed that the city was negligent in allowing the bus, which had recently had a wheelchair station removed from its rear seating area, continue to serve passengers. Ultimately, the Flores family received a $125,000 settlement in the case.
