Florida Bus Accident Lawyer

We'll help you get the compensation you deserve

Buses are an extremely common form of transportation for many commuters in the state of Florida. Large transport vehicles like busses are used to clear up traffic, and can be a great transportation alternative if you don’t want to own a car.

Operating a bus takes more skill than operating an average vehicle, and operators must be certified bus drivers. However, if you have ever ridden on a bus, you can understand why there is plenty of room for error.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, Florida Car Accident Lawyer Team provides legal representation for those affected.

From the moment we receive your case, we work day and night to build your claim’s legitimacy through extensive evidence and top-notch legal research.

Who can be at fault in a bus accident?

Florida is a “no fault” car insurance state, meaning each person involved in an accident must rely on their own insurance to cover the cost of damages. However, if you have been seriously injured in a bus accident, you can seek additional compensation for your injuries.

One of the first actions Florida Car Accident Lawyer Team will take is to establish who is at fault. But who can be at fault in a bus accident?

The bus company

The company who owns the bus can be held liable if they have failed to keep their vehicle up to standard.

The bus driver

Operator error is an extremely common reason for a bus accident. If the driver fails to maintain the vehicle, the driver can be held liable. If a bus driver is found to be at fault, the bus company will most likely be the party that is held liable. Most drivers are under protection from their employers.

The manufacturer of a bus

If the parts that are used are defective, the manufacturer of the bus may be held liable.

Common bus accident injuries

Because a bus is a large vehicle that carries a lot of momentum, the injuries that result from a bus accident can be very serious. This is especially true if the bus is travelling at a high rate of speed when the accident occurs. Here are the most common injuries we see with bus accidents:

Neck injuries

Injuries like whiplash are extremely common with bus accidents. When a vehicle the size of a bus comes to a sudden halt, the head keeps moving forward, resulting in a neck injury.

Head injuries

Head injuries normally occur as a result of an individual’s head slamming against a hard surface, like a steering wheel or dashboard.

Spinal injuries

Spinal injuries are normally a result of a sudden twist or jerk, or a direct impact to the spine. Spinal injuries require extensive medical care.

When a bus is involved in an accident with a pedestrian, it is extremely common for the result to be a fatality. If a loved one has died as a result of a bus accident, family members can still seek legal action against the guilty party.

Steps to take when injured in a bus accident

Being involved in a bus accident can be a terrifying experience, but having a plan of action can ease your mind a little bit. Here is what you should do if you are injured in a bus accident:

Call 911

Getting the medical attention your injuries require is priority number one. This can also get the police involved to make sure everything stays calm.

Document everything

Take pictures of the accident, as well as injuries you may have sustained. Be sure to note the bus company, as well as the name of the bus driver. Information like this can be crucial information when building your personal injury case.

Consult with a bus accident lawyer

Transportation companies normally have a large legal team at their disposal. Taking legal action can become extremely tricky if the party you are suing is a government organization

Consulting with a qualified bus accident lawyer can significantly improve the results of your claim, as the legal action required to take on one of these companies takes extensive knowledge and expertise.
