Bus Accident Lawsuits
Bus accident lawsuits are often more complex than other types of motor vehicle lawsuits, but the experienced attorneys at Baron & Herskowitz have the skills necessary to help injured parties navigate the legal process with confidence. Depending on the ownership of the bus in question, it may be difficult to establish liability in bus accident lawsuits. If the bus is privately owned, the state of Florida considers that owner to be a common carrier, which means that both the bus driver and the owner of the vehicle have a heightened responsibility to ensure the safety of passengers and other vehicles with which the bus shares the road. However, if a bus is owned by a government authority, governmental immunity laws can make it more difficult to recover compensation, even if the bus driver was clearly at fault.
Financial compensation in successful bus accident lawsuits varies according to the situation and the injuries sustained. An experienced bus accident lawyer may be able to help a plaintiff recover compensation for the following types of damages:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical costs
- Rehabilitative costs
- Lost wages
- Punitive damages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Wrongful death
