Bus Accident Lawyer in Miami Seeks Justice for Injury Victims
Bus accidents are especially tragic because of the large number of passengers inherently involved in the crash. Add to this the fact that buses are not equipped with safety devices, such as seat belts and airbags, which come standard on other motor vehicles, and you have the potential for a high number of injuries and deaths in every crash. Bus accidents may be caused by a variety of factors, but the number one cause of bus accidents is negligence. Bus drivers may be negligent in operating the vehicle. In fact, inexperience and poor driver training contribute to many bus accidents each year. Driver fatigue and inattention also contribute to a significant number of bus accidents each year. In addition, a bus company's negligence in maintaining its fleet is also a factor in many bus crashes. When bus passengers are injured as a result of negligence, the bus driver and/or bus company may be held legally liable for your injuries.
Bus accidents often result in serious injuries to passengers. Bus accident injury victims may suffer brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, and internal injuries that often require painful surgery and extensive physical therapy to heal. These types of injuries may lower the quality of your life forever, rendering it impossible to perform routine daily tasks without assistance. In some cases, injury victims are unable to return to work for days, weeks, or even months after the accident.
