Call Winning St. Petersburg Bus Accident Injury Lawyers For A FREE Consultation!
Were you or someone you loved seriously injured in an accident involving public transportation? The Florida Law Group can fight for maximum compensation!
Buses are generally considered to be safer forms of transportation than cars, motorcycles, or bikes, but no vehicle is immune from the possibility of a crash, particularly in St. Petersburg. The Tampa Bay Area (of which St. Petersburg is one of three major metro cities located here) is home to one of the worst public transit systems in the country. For people who have trusted this system with their safety, and who have been injured due to someone’s negligent actions, there is a way to get paid for the cost of the accident and hold the guilty party accountable! Our experienced St. Petersburg bug accident injury lawyers can advocate for you to get the damages you deserve, regardless of the many obstacles that may stand in your way.
Riders on public transportation generally do not wear seatbelts, and because buses are so much bigger than other passenger vehicles on the road, any accident is likely to cause severe injuries. If you’ve been injured in an accident involving a city bus, school bus, or other type of bus, you may be faced with costly bills related to ambulatory transport, emergency room care, hospitalization, surgery, imaging tests like X-rays or MRIs, physical therapy and rehabilitation, medical devices, medications, copays, deductibles, mental health counseling, and more. You may have to take off days, weeks, or even months off of work without pay in order to recover. You may have to cancel travel plans, forgo participating in activities you once enjoyed, or even require lifelong care for permanent injuries. All of this can add up to thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars! Rarely do St. Petersburg residents, who already live in an expensive area, have this money in savings, and even if they do, it’s not fair that they have to pay it when the incident wasn’t even their fault.
If you find yourself in a similar situation, filing a personal injury lawsuit against the bus driver, bus company, or passenger vehicle driver may be the best chance you have at getting the responsible party to pay for the injuries they caused. However, bus companies have many legal protections and large legal teams, and they will do everything in their power to avoid paying out a full settlement; it is in their best interests to pay out as little as possible. That’s why you need to enlist the help of an aggressive accident attorney who can stand up for your rights and negotiate a fair offer.
The Florida Law Group has recovered over $1 billion for injured accident victims. We’re confident in our abilities to get monetary compensation for what your injuries are really worth! </h3
When it comes to recovering compensation after a bus accident, it matters what firm you choose to represent you, as bus accident cases can be complex (especially when it comes to who the lawsuit is filed against and who is found negligent). In a public transportation incident, you may be able to sue the bus driver, the driver of another passenger vehicle, or even the city, county, or state governmental body. Because lawsuits involving government entities are so complicated, you need an attorney who understands the local laws and has successfully secured verdicts for bus accident victims before. That describes each of the lawyers at The Florida Law Group!
