There are several things that can cause bus accident. Buses can be hit by other vehicles. If that happened to you, you can file a case against the driver of the other vehicle.
Many bus accidents are also caused by the bus driver’s negligence. If the bus was not properly maintained, for example, or if the driver demonstrates carelessness while operating the bus, or if the driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, an accident can occur. When this happens, you can make a claim against the driver of the bus.
A school bus is considered one of the most convenient and safest ways to transport children to and from school, but school buses also cause crashes.
If you or your loved one were injured by the driver of a county bus, public school bus or city bus, your case will be against a governmental entity (either the City or the County). This case is known as a case of sovereign immunity. There are some strict limits regarding the dollar amount a claimant can recover in such a case. Just, for example, only $200,000 can be recovered from the governmental entity typically. In order to recover more, a “Claims Bill” must be passed in the State Legislature in Tallahassee.
It is also very important to note that statutes of limitations give deadlines for how long you have to pursue your claims, so it is very critical to consult with an experienced Miami Bus Accident Lawyer as early as possible to find out the applicable legal time deadlines and to ensure you take all required actions in a timely fashion.

If you or anyone you love has been injured in a bus accident in Florida, it will be important to find out exactly what caused your injuries. It might be that missing or defective equipment in the bus worsened your accident. For instance, many buses don’t have seatbelts when really they should. In that case, you may be able to make a claim against the owner of the bus or against the manufacturer of the bus. If this happened to you, then this Miami Bus Accident Attorney may hire a specialist on bus safety to verify if the bus was up to code.
Moreover, buses operators must make sure that disabled citizens riding on electric scooters inside buses are protected (i.e., the scooters are strapped down). You might have a claim against the operator of the bus or his or her employer if your scooter was not strapped down and fell over during the bus ride. This can cause you serious injury or even death.Pursue your Rights with a South Florida Bus Accident Attorney
