If you were taking public transportation in the Tampa Bay area when a bus accident left you injured, you may be eligible to receive more financial compensation than you realize!
Rely on us to win a maximum settlement
Tampa is home to one of the worst public transit systems in America, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Although public buses (including school buses) are usually considered one of the safest forms of transportation, no vehicle is immune to the possibility of driver/passenger injury or fatality. When there is a crash involving a bus, sometimes the injuries are even more severe because most riders do not wear seatbelts, and because the buses are so big, pedestrians have a higher risk of going unseen and getting hit. The Florida Law Group specializes in litigating Tampa bus accident injury cases. We have recovered millions of dollars in damages for our clients, and you don’t pay for any of our services unless we reach a settlement!
Passengers, pedestrians, and motorists can all suffer serious injuries in a bus crash, including concussions, fractured limbs, whiplash, spinal cord injuries, and more. Victims of these accidents may not be able to work while they recover and incur enormous medical costs for medications, therapies, surgeries, doctor visits, hospital stays, testing, home assistance, equipment, and more, which is why it is important to have an experienced attorney handling your case. Seeking damages from bus accidents can be difficult because there are multiple parties who could be negligent and multiple potential causes. Our lawyers are nationally recognized for our skilled representation and our ability to reach high settlements for our clients. Contact us today for a free Tampa bus accident case evaluation!
Mastering the complexities of bus accident injury cases
There are many ways that injured parties can seek a settlement after a bus crash. When a bus hits a smaller vehicle, and the bus driver is found negligent, all injured passengers in the bus and the smaller vehicle can hold the bus driver and bus company that employed the driver responsible. If the other driver is found negligent, all injured bus passengers can hold that driver responsible. In some situations, dangerous conditions inside the bus can cause injury, such as a slippery aisles or steps; if the company does not maintain their vehicle’s safety, they can be held liable.
