We Can Handle Your Space Coast Bus Accident Case
If you were the victim of a bus accident in Titusville, greater Brevard County, or elsewhere along the Space Coast, our team can take your case and pursue damages on your behalf. This is true no matter if you were:
- Riding a bus when the accident occurred
- Driving your own vehicle when a bus hit your car
- Hit by a bus while you were a pedestrian or riding a bicycle
Bus accidents occur for several common reasons. Ways bus drivers may act negligently include:
- Speeding to stay on a strict schedule;
- Distracted driving including texting or cell phone use;
- Careless acts, such as running red lights;
- Driving recklessly in the rain;
- Drowsy driving;
- Failure to yield right of way during turns;
- Misjudging turns and not leaving enough clearance; and
- Changing lanes improperly, often without signaling.
We sometimes see bus fleet operators who fail to provide the necessary upkeep on their vehicles to keep them in proper working condition. Poor or improper maintenance may support a negligence lawsuit. Let our bus accident lawyers in Titusville, FL review your case and take legal action on your behalf. Call 1-800-747-3733 to learn more about how we can help.
The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine Can Take Legal Action in Your Titusville Bus Accident Case
Identifying the liable party and building a strong case after a bus accident can be complex. The team from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can manage even the most complex cases, providing responsive legal care while still going the extra mile to ensure you get the support and guidance you need. We will go to work for you as soon as you give us the OK.
We start every case with a thorough investigation that helps us determine negligence and liability. The liable party plays a significant role in how we proceed with your case. For example, imagine:
A Private Company Owns and Operates the Bus
When a private company owns and operates the bus, things are somewhat more straightforward. We can build a case based on the driver’s negligence, often holding both the driver and their employer liable thanks to the legal doctrine of vicarious liability. Florida law gives us four years to take this type of action, but we need to get started as soon as possible.
The Bus Is Owned and Operated by Public Transit
If the bus belongs to Space Coast Area Transit or another public agency in Brevard County, the case becomes more complicated. When there is a municipality or other government agency involved, sovereign immunity comes into play. This legal doctrine dictates how and when we can hold a government agency liable. In a bus accident case, we need to meet strict deadlines and follow specific steps before we can take legal action.
The Bus Belongs to a School
When the bus belongs to a public school, sovereign immunity also applies. We must meet the same short deadlines and strict protocols to pursue a payout in this type of case as we do when the bus is public transportation. If the school is private or run by a corporation or nonprofit, the case proceeds as it would against a private owner/operator.
Recoverable Damages in a Bus Accident Case in Titusville, FL
If we can reach a settlement agreement or take your case to court and get an award on your behalf, you can collect a wide range of damages to compensate you for your accident-related losses and expenses. No two cases are the same, but your recoverable damages could include:
- Medical care;
- Ongoing care and future care;
- Home health care;
- Treatment at rehabilitation or long-term care facilities;
- Lost wages and benefits;
- Diminished earning capacity;
- Property damages, such as repair of your vehicle;
- Other accident-related expenses;
- Pain and suffering;
- Mental anguish; and
- Wrongful death
We cannot give you an accurate potential value for your case until we complete our investigation and have a better understanding of your expenses and losses. However, our injury lawyers have decades of combined experience identifying and proving damages in this type of case. We will pursue the maximum compensation available to you based on the case we build. Call us today to get started: 1-800-747-3733.
