Bus Accidents

Florida Bus Accident Lawyer

Buses are generally a safe form of transportation when traveling throughout Florida. However, as we know, accidents inevitably happen. School buses, private buses, and public buses cause serious injuries when crashing with other vehicles on the road due to their large size and heavy weight. Kids on school buses are even more susceptible to injury as most school buses do not provide their passengers with seatbelts.

According to NHTSA, from the years 2006-2015, there were 1,172 school-transportation-related fatalities throughout the United States. The study considered “school-transportation-related crashes” to mean either a school bus or non-school bus bringing kids to or from school-related activities. These accidents can be the result of bus driver negligence, improper maintenance, bad weather, equipment defects, inadequate training, and much more.

Because of the complexity of a bus accident claim, it is extremely important to contact a Fort Lauderdale bus accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident. Here at Workman Injury Law, we will help get you the treatment you need, establish liability and fight for you to get the compensation you deserve.

For example, buses do not provide airbags for their passengers and school buses often do not provide seatbelts. With these safety precautions lacking, this creates a very dangerous situation which can lead to serious injury or even death when an accident does occur. Bus accident victims may suffer from the following injuries:
