Being struck by a bus can have horrific consequences, as these behemoths often weigh in excess of 10-15 tons, whether it be a school bus, a private commercially owned and operated bus, or a public municipal bus.
It requires great care, training, and concentration to safely operate and maneuver a bus, as the blind spots are many, and the complexities of dealing with such enormous machinery and scores of passengers at the same time can be overwhelming for some drivers.
If you or a loved one has been struck by a bus anywhere in the South Florida region, and are suffering negative effects, such as mounting medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, destroyed personal property, or loss of enjoyment of life, it is important to retain an experienced and passionate personal injury law firm to fight on your behalf.
At the Miami personal injury law firm of Brumer & Brumer, we have achieved favorable outcomes, through both settlement and verdict, for our clients for the last five-plus decades. We encourage you to call us today to discuss the specific facts of your case.
Our attorneys understand that injuries stemming from a bus mishap can be devastating and long-term.
We will work for you to ensure the party responsible, whether it be the bus driver, the owner of the bus, the manufacturer of potentially malfunctioning parts, or the negligent maintenance service provider, is held accountable and is made to pay you.
The causes for a bus accident in Miami can vary greatly. Occasionally, weather or unsafe roadways play a role.
Other times, there is only carelessness on the part of the driver to blame. Examples of bad decision-making on the part of the driver include: selecting unsafe drop-off or pick-up locations; operating a bus under the influence of drugs or alcohol; operating a bus without sufficient rest the night before; operating a bus without sufficient training and experience; and making sudden or unexpected stops.
In matters relating to school bus accidents, the drivers are often found to be distracted by noisy and unruly students.
Our resourceful and dedicated personal injury law staff works diligently to reveal the exact cause of the bus accidents that come before us. When necessary, we rely on transportation and other motor vehicle experts to offer unimpeachable evidence to bolster our clients' cases.
There is never a cost to retain our law firm. We only take on meritorious cases with a high chance of yielding a monetary award for our clients. Please call us today to schedule a consultation, at which time we will provide an honest assessment of your case and a pragmatic strategy to proceed.
