Coral Gables Bus Accident

Located in Florida’s Miami-Dade County, Coral Gables is the home of the University of Miami, the Coral Gables Trolley, and many quirky shops and restaurants. Close to Miami but with a unique urban flavor, Coral Gables is a great place to live and work. With plenty of amenities and easy access to Miami, Coral Gables has stable real estate prices and plenty of opportunity, in part because of the university in the city.

Since Coral Gables is a university city and since many students decide to use buses to get around, the city sees its fair share of bus accidents. While not as common as Coral Gables car accidents, bus accidents can cause serious injury. Coral Gables bus accident victims are often rushed to hospital with neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, Coral Gables head injuries, broken bones, and other serious injuries. In some cases, these types of accidents result in a Coral Gables wrongful death claims. A common problem with bus accidents is that buses usually do not require passengers to wear seatbelts, which can mean that in a Coral Gables bus accident passengers are violently flung about and injured. On many buses, passengers are standing or are carrying objects which can become projectiles in the event of a crash, exacerbating injuries.

Florida law sees buses as common carriers, and this means that they are subject to many rules and regulations to keep passengers safer. Passenger vans, city buses, tour buses, county buses, charter buses, and commercial buses are all considered common carriers when it comes to Florida law. When bus companies fail to keep passengers safe and a bus accident results, victims have the right to seek compensation for their injuries. However, these cases can be quite complex due to the fact that bus companies are often protected by powerful insurance carriers. Victims need to work with experienced Coral Gables personal injury attorneys in order to increase their chances of getting fair compensation.
