A bus accident can quickly lead to a class action suit that involves multiple claimants who are all trying to secure a settlement from the city government, bus company, or their insurance company.

We Will Determine Who is Responsible for Your Accident
To win your case, our law firm must establish that someone’s negligence or careless actions are what led to your injuries and subsequent damages. Negligent parties in a bus accident case may include:
- Bus driver
- Bus company
- City government
- Bus manufacturer or designer
- Inspection agency
- Road crews
Keep in mind that not all transit systems are privately owned. Some municipalities provide local public transportation services. Florida Statute §768.28 allows you to file a lawsuit against local or state agencies if the accident involved a government-owned vehicle.

Losses You Can Recover in a Bus Accident in Florida
What you can recover after your bus accident depends on several factors, such as how the accident occurred and who is at fault. If there is a class action suit against the bus company, they may have limited resources due to the heavy financial burden. Depending on the situation, you may be able to include the following damages:
Bus accidents can cause catastrophic injuries that take you months to recover from. You may require medical services such as emergency room care, specialized medical procedures, hospital stay, follow up visits to the doctor, rehabilitative services, or in-home care. A Boca Raton bus accident lawyer can calculate your current and projected future medical expenses.
Lost Pay During Recovery
If you were out of work for several weeks, you may have lost several weeks of pay, bonuses, tips, or benefits. Instead of turning to your employer to make up your lost pay, the at-fault party should compensate you. If you are disabled or physically limited in your abilities due to the accident, we can also calculate lost income based on your diminished earning capacity.
Pain and Suffering
You may have experienced severe pain and discomfort while you were recovering from your accident. The accident may have also caused emotional or mental trauma. If so, we can add pain and suffering to your personal injury claim. We can calculate damages based on the amount of suffering you experienced.
If you lost a loved one in a bus accident, your family may be entitled to receive compensation for death-related expenses and losses. For instance, we may be able to claim funeral/burial expenses, medical expenses prior to death, or loss of household income.
Your Boca Raton bus accident lawyer’s goal is to get you fair compensation based on your actual losses. Do not let the insurance company determine what your case is worth. Our law firm can help you assess your losses and negotiate a fair settlement form the bus company and their insurer.
