More and more, people are choosing to use public transportation instead of driving in Florida. Every day, people choose to ride the bus in order to avoid traffic, and many have found that it is actually quite convenient. Unfortunately, the number of bus accidents and reported bus accident injuries reflects the same increase that has been seen in the number of people who rely on buses for transportation. When a motor vehicle driver or a pedestrian is hit by a bus, he/she stands little chance of escaping the crash with only minor injuries. This is because buses are large and carry a great number of passengers, increasing the vehicle’s overall weight. Therefore, when a bus collides with another car or hits a pedestrian, the outcome is usually quite serious, if not fatal.
A Tampa personal injury attorney should be consulted with after any involvement in a bus accident. This is true no matter how large or small your injuries are. In a number of cases, you may be allowed to file a lawsuit in order to seek damages from the responsible party – in this case, the bus driver or company. Monetary compensation for the bodily damages, medical bills, property damages, pain and suffering can be fought for on your behalf, as long as you have the right professional working in your corner. Even lost income or lost earning potential can be compensated for when rightly represented by a skillful attorney.
