These types of traffic crashes can be even more serious than car accidents and can be more complex legally, too. This is why working with an experienced vehicle accident attorney is important if you want to seek financial recovery to help pay for your medical treatment, lost wages, property damage, and other losses.
Let’s take a closer look at each type of vehicle accident:
Bicycle Accidents. Bicyclists don’t have air bags or layers of metal and glass to protect them, the way car occupants do. In the event of a crash, bicyclists are often thrown for their bikes and can suffer broken bones, road burn, head trauma, and other serious injuries.
Boating Accidents. Boating accidents can happen due to fatigued or drunk boating or due to recklessness. When collisions happen on the water, occupants of a boat can fall overboard and can be at risk of head injuries, drowning, and other potentially fatal injury.
Bus Accidents. Bus accidents in Florida can involve shuttle buses, tour operators, or public transportation. In each case, passengers are at risk because there are usually no seat belts or passenger air bags on buses. Occupants can be thrown around the interior of the vehicle, crashing into windows, other passengers, and items that have become airborne in the crash. This can create situations where multiple passengers have sustained serious injuries, including head injuries, soft tissue injuries, fractures, and other injuries.
SUV & Van Rollover Accidents. Because of their larger side, SUVs and vans are more vulnerable to rollover accidents when compared with passenger cars, especially if uneven road surfaces or high speeds are factors in a collision. Rollovers can lead to head injuries, fractures, fatalities, and other kinds of injuries.
Train Accidents. Train accidents can happen if a passenger vehicle gets stuck on a train track and is hit or if a trail derails and causes injuries to passengers onboard. Tragically, children playing on the tracks have also been seriously injured or killed. Train accidents can lead to amputations, internal injuries, and other life-threatening injuries.Do I Have a Claim?
Florida law allows anyone who has been injured by the reckless or intentional actions of another party to sue that party for damages, including medical costs, lost wages, and any other costs related to the injury.
To have a lawsuit, an injured person needs to be able to prove that someone’s negligence or actions led to their injuries. They must also need to be able to prove that their injuries resulted in losses.
This can be difficult. You may not know, for example, whether a train operator in your collision was fatigued or not following safety practices. Experienced traffic accident attorneys work closely with professionals, such as engineers, investigators, and others, to gather evidence to prove whether negligence caused an accident. They can work to find all liable parties and can present a strong case before a court or at the negotiation table, working to secure fair compensation for your injuries.Call an Attorney Soon After Your Collision
