Any time you and your family trusts a form of mass-transit to help you travel to-and-fro, you are literally placing your lives in another person's hands. You have a right to expect that the driver of whichever form of mass-transit will do so safely and effectively.
Unfortunately, when an accident occurs aboard a bus or other form of mass transit, the results can be catastrophic. Simply because of the quantity of patrons aboard a bus, any type of bus accident can mean multiple injuries and even wrongful death.
If you or a family member has been injured in a bus accident, you may have legal recourse to seek financial restitution.

Can I File a Lawsuit for a Bus Accident?
When determining whether you can file a lawsuit for a bus accident, our South Florida lawyer, Eric Canter, will first investigate whether negligence can be established in your case. Negligence means that the bus driver, company the bus driver works for, or even the city in charge of the roads may have been acting outside of the normal expectations of safety. This can occur with any of the following scenarios:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Driving while under the influence of drugs
- A requirement for the bus driver to work too many hours
- The driver not obeying road signage and lights
- Uneven roads
- Improperly-marked road hazards
Our attorney will review your case for free and determine if there was any negligent behavior on the part of the bus driver, bus company, or those that maintain the streets. If we can prove negligence, we can file a lawsuit to help get you compensation for the following:
- Medical bills
- Insurance claims
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional suffering
- Loss of employment due to injuries
- Loss of benefits
