St. George's trademark is its geology — red bluffs make up the northern part of the city with two peaks covered in lava rock in the city's center. The northeastern edges of the Mojave Desert are visible to the south. Zion National Park can be seen to the east, and the Pine Valley Mountains loom over the city to the north and northwest. The climate has more in common with the Desert Southwest than the rest of the state, with scorching hot summers and mild, mostly snowless winters. The city has recently developed into a major retirement destination.

What is bus accident litigation?

Cases involving individuals who have been injured in crashes and collisions involving private or government-operated municipal bus systems. Bus accidents have a tendency to injury many people within and around the bus in a collision because the size and weight of these motor vehicles is enough to cause massive amounts of damage. When you factor in speed or adverse traffic conditions, the potential for property damage and/or loss of life is immense. People who are injured in bus accidents may be compensated for their injury, lost income, and pain and suffering.
