Fort Lauderdale Bus Accident Lawyer

Personal Injury Attorneys Committed to Fighting for Clients Injured in Bus Accidents in Broward County and Elsewhere in South Florida

Bus accidents are relatively uncommon, at least as compared to most other motor vehicle accidents. But the injuries sustained by victims in bus accidents also tend to be more severe than most other accidents that occur on our roadways. One reason is that buses don’t necessarily have seat belts, so passengers typically aren’t restrained by a safety device at impact. And if a bus hits a smaller motor vehicle or pedestrian, its size and weight are likely to be a big factor in terms of the injuries suffered by victims. Additional complications can arise in trying to recover compensation for injuries sustained in a Florida bus accident, as many buses are owned and operated by local government. So if you have been injured in a bus accident, you need an experienced, motivated Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer who can help you pursue financial compensation for your injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fort Lauderdale Bus Accidents

FAQ: Can I pursue legal action against a bus that is owned/operated by local government?

Yes, you can still recover compensation for your injuries if you were injured in an accident involving a public bus, though different legal rules apply to public buses. As a general rule, you need to take action quickly, so if you’ve been the victim of a bus accident you should reach out to a Fort Lauderdale bus accidents lawyer as soon as possible after a crash.

FAQ: How much financial compensation will I receive if I’ve been injured in a bus accident?

It depends on the nature and severity of the injuries you sustained—and the losses you can prove. Losses don’t have to be readily quantifiable, though it is easier to prove economic damages like medical bills and lost wages. In many cases, you may also recover for emotional distress, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium, among other things.
