Florida Bus Accident Attorney
Buses can be a convenient mode of public transportation. Whether it is a city bus, tour bus or even a school bus, these motor vehicles are designed to provide a safe mass-transit option for passengers. Unfortunately, just like any other motor vehicle, buses are prone to accidents. Bus accidents can be caused by a negligent bus driver, a passing vehicle or can even involve pedestrians.
If you were injured in a Florida bus accident as a bus passenger, pedestrian, cyclist, or occupant of another vehicle, you may need legal help to effectively pursue compensation. Representation by a Florida bus accident lawyer may have a significant positive impact on your ability to recover and the amount of your recovery. Contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
The Truck Accident Law Firm can investigate your bus accident to see who was at fault and fight to see that you get your deserved compensation.

School Bus Accidents
School buses are subject to regulations from the National School Transportation Association (NSTA), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the American School Bus Council and others. Although school buses are designed to be one of the safest forms of transportation, accidents can still occur. As opposed to children walking to school, school buses are much safer. Most school buses are not equipped with seat belts. Whether the cause of the accident was the school bus driver, a passing motor vehicle or some type of mechanical defect, you can contact The Truck Accident Law Firm to discuss your legal options.
For more information on the types of bus accident cases our firm handles, or to learn how our firm could assist in filing a claim for compensation on your behalf, please do not hesitate to contact a Florida bus accident attorney at our firm today.
Private Buses and Bus Tourism
Since this state is a hub for tourism in Florida, tour buses are common. In the United States, Motor Coach Industries manufacture tour coaches (buses). Many of these tour buses are incredibly large and some are even double decker and open-roof buses. Tour buses are not under as strict of regulations as are city buses and school buses.
Defining the Role of Damages in Bus Crash Cases
The bus you ride on is most likely part of your regional transit system and as such they are responsible for your safety when you hire them to transport you. They are also responsible for accidents that occur while they are in transport and the damages that ensue and are insured for just such an occasion. Keep in mind that insurance companies are for-profit businesses, and care only about that… making a profit.
It is important that an injured victim retain the ability to proceed in court if the insurance company makes a decision that protect its own client and business at the expense of the injured.
Damages is the financial compensation to an injured victim after a successful personal injury suit. Economic damage awards cover losses that are more easily quantified such as compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation, and loss of income directly linked to the bus accident injury.
Non-economic damages are designed to compensate injured victims for the costs associated with more qualitative losses. If a victim’s inability to go running for pleasure after their accident represented a loss of enjoyment of life, they could pursue a non-economic damage with a Florida bus accident lawyer.
Statute of Limitations
Every state has a statute of limitations during which accident victims must file a claim or they will be denied the right to do so at a later date. It is imperative that you contact a personal injury attorney right away to fight on your behalf for both personal injury and property damage.
