Proving Liability For Your Bus Accident
The causes of a bus accident will vary with each case, but some examples of how the bus driver’s or bus company’s negligence may have contributed to your accident include:
- Driving while impaired or distracted
- Driving too quickly for the posted speed limit or the weather conditions
- Ignoring traffic signals or road signs
- Driver fatigue, which may be due to being overscheduled
- Improper bus maintenance
- Poor training for the bus driver
- Defective products, which may lead to mechanical failure
These are not the only ways that negligence may have caused your accident. If the bus’s driver or owner caused or contributed to your accident, we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve. To find out more, call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine.
Potentially Recoverable Damages After A Bus Accident
Following a bus accident, you are entitled to pursue compensation for your injuries, losses, and other expenses following Florida public transit statutes. While every case is unique, this could include both immediate and long-term costs, such as:
- Ongoing medical care
- Compensation for lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- In-home aid and home modifications
- Pain and suffering and emotional distress
- Property Damage
- Funeral costs and related expenses, in the case of wrongful death
A Boca Raton bus accident lawyer can explain the costs that may be covered and how to start the legal process. We can gather a variety of documents to support your case. For example, we may compile your medical records, bills, and your wage statements. We may even hire an expert witness, such as a medical professional. Our personal injury attorneys are dedicated to seeking fair compensation in the form of a settlement or court verdict.
We Can Negotiate With The Insurance Company
We can handle all the communications with the negligent party, their insurer, and their defense attorneys. If an insurance adjuster tries to undervalue or deny your personal injury claim by shifting the blame onto you, we can conduct our own investigation and present our evidence to challenge their determination of fault.
Our personal injury lawyers will handle all of the negotiations for you while you rest and recover. If an insurer refuses to offer a fair settlement, we will not hesitate to file a personal injury lawsuit and represent you in a trial. There, we can take legal action and argue your case before a judge or jury.
Do Not Miss Out On Your Right To Compensation After A Bus Accident
It is important not to wait too long before reaching out to legal counsel. Florida’s statute of limitations (Florida § 95.11) means that bus accident victims have a limited amount of time to file their lawsuit. The sooner we get started, the more quickly we will be able to begin collecting the evidence we will need to build a strong case that supports your claim.
Our bus accident attorneys offer responsive legal care and can help by managing communications between you and all other parties, filing paperwork within the necessary deadlines, representing your issues at the negotiating table, and standing by your side at trial, if necessary. We will be working for you at every turn while we fight to hold the liable party accountable for their actions.
Let our team work on your case and handle the details on your behalf while you focus on getting better. For further details and an assessment of your claim, contact a Boca Raton bus accident lawyer today with the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine.
