Miami Bus Accident Attorneys
Let Our Miami Bus Accident Attorneys Help
After any Florida vehicle accident, your first priority should be calling 911 and getting the medical care you need. This is especially true for bus accidents, which often cause extensive personal injury and property damage. Buses are heavy, difficult to maneuver, and particularly dangerous in congested metropolitan areas like Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach. Crowded streets, bicyclists, and pedestrian traffic compound the problem. If you are thinking of making a legal claim for personal injury or wrongful death related to a Florida bus accident, then you should retain an attorney as soon possible. Attorneys at Viñas & DeLuca handle cases throughout the state and are here to help. 24/7/365.
Our attorneys can help ensure that critical evidence is not lost or destroyed. We will work on your behalf to secure important evidence from the crash scene, preserve any “black box,” surveillance video, or other electronic data, speak to witnesses, and begin the process of collecting important physical evidence and building your bus accident case. We do this so you can focus on getting better. The sooner you speak with one of our Miami bus accident attorneys, the sooner we can get to work for you.
Causes of Miami Bus Accidents
Buses crash for a variety of reasons. They are hard to steer, occupy large portions of the road, and are slow to stop and accelerate. That is why proper bus design and driver training is critical to safety. Many Miami bus accidents occur or cause injury because of driver fatigue, driver distraction, inadequate driver training, poor bus design, improper weight distribution, and lack of crashworthiness. Every bus accident case is different and may require extensive investigation to accurately determine the probable cause of the bus accident and properly assign legal liability. Our attorneys have experience investigating bus accident cases, and are available for consultation in Miami, Boca Raton/Palm Beach, Tampa, and throughout Florida.
Who Pays When a Bus Crashes?
There are multiple parties who may be financially responsible for the physical injury and losses resulting from a bus accident occurring in Florida. These parties typically include the bus operator, the person or entity that owned the bus, and any government or corporate entity responsible for routing the bus or training, instructing, employing, or supervising the bus driver. The bus manufacturer may also be responsible if there is an issue of crashworthiness or product defect.
