Hollywood Bus Accident

Buses, including charter buses, school buses, tour buses, and public transportation buses, are among the safer modes of transportation available. Bus accidents in Hollywood are far less common than car accidents and truck accidents. However, when these accidents do occur, they can be especially devastating. The sheer size of buses, the number of passengers involved, and the fact that buses do not generally use seatbelts can all lead to catastrophic injuries.

If you've been injured in a bus accident, you deserve to get legal advice as well as information about your situation. In many cases, you will be contacted by the insurance company for the bus line almost right away and you will receive an offer for compensation. However, without getting legal advice it can be difficult to tell whether this offer is enough for your legal costs or not. To find out how much your case may be worth and to find out about all your options for pursuing fair compensation, contact Flaxman Law Group today. In a free, no obligation consultation, Flaxman Law Group can help you review any offers you received and can help you understand the options you may have.

Injuries Common in Bus Accidents

Bus accidents can be catastrophic because of the size of the vehicle and the number of passengers involved. In many cases, buses often contain cargo as well as people, and in the event of an accident all of this can become airborne, leading to catastrophic injuries, including:

  • Fatal injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Fractures
  • Disfigurement
  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Back injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries and whiplash

The costs of being a bus accident can be considerable. You may have to pay for rehabilitation, medical devices, medication, medical bills, lost wages, and more. You may also need to replace any lost or damaged property that was on the bus with you at the time of the accident. If someone's negligence or recklessness has caused the accident, there is no need for you to pay for these costs out-of-pocket. Florida law allows you to pursue the liable parties in these situations so that they are responsible for paying your costs.

Do You Have a Claim After a Traffic Accident in Hollywood?

To find out whether you have a claim after a bus accident, contact a personal injury attorney in Hollywood or your community. It is an important step to ensure that you get fair compensation for your injuries and don't end up having to pay for medical bills and other expenses out-of-pocket yourself. Keep in mind that the medical costs for your injuries may be long-term. You may be paying for your injuries for months or years to come, and you will need enough financial resources for that.
