West Palm Beach Bus Accident Lawyers

Top Rated Lawyers Who Get Results for Clients Injured in Bus Accidents in Palm Beach County, Broward County and Across South Florida

Both public and private buses are relatively safe forms of transportation—in South Florida and elsewhere around the country. Headline-generating incidents aside, the overwhelming majority of bus passengers get where they want to go with nary a glitch. But if a bus is involved in an accident, the consequences for passengers—and the passengers in other motor vehicles—can be dire. At Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A., our West Palm Beach bus accident lawyers are heavily invested in protecting our clients’ rights and work tirelessly to recover compensation for bus accident injuries caused by the negligence or recklessness of the bus driver or bus operator.

Buses aren’t equipped with the same kind of safety devices that are commonly found in other motor vehicles, with the lack of seatbelts and airbags being two prime examples. Buses also have a high center of gravity and are much more likely to roll over as compared to most other motor vehicles. Finally, when a bus makes contact with a car or a pedestrian, its size and weight often contribute to catastrophic injuries and property damage, with fatalities likely to result.

Moreover, because of the serious nature of many bus accident injuries, victims often miss work, leading to diminished earnings—and diminished future earnings.

We recognize that it may be challenging for some people to stand up to government agencies or private bus companies to obtain the compensation they deserve, so our attorneys and staffers provide support and guidance throughout the process.

Frequently Asked Questions About West Palm Beach Bus Accident

FAQ: What damages can I potentially recover in a bus accident?

In general, you can recover for many of the same damages you would in any other motor vehicle accident. That includes property damage, hospital bills and other medical expenses, lost wages (past and future), emotional distress, and pain & suffering.

FAQ: Do I need an attorney to recover financial compensation in the wake of a bus accident?

Not necessarily. In theory, you could negotiate with a bus driver’s insurance adjuster or a bus company’s representative and come to a settlement. But you’d likely be flying blind, with little idea of what your injuries are worth. Moreover, you would likely find it challenging to determine which party is potentially responsible for your injuries, another major obstacle. Finally, pursuing some damages would only be possible via lawsuit, which, for all intents and purposes, requires the involvement of an experienced West Palm Beach personal injury lawyer. All in all, it’s strongly recommended that you retain a qualified attorney if you have been injured in a bus accident. An attorney can not only help shepherd you through the legal process, but he or she can also free you up to focus on recovering from your injuries.
