Miami Bus Accident Attorney

Aside from the sheer size of a bus, there are several reasons why a North Miami bus accident may result in more severe injuries than a car accident. For one, the lack of onboard seatbelts can mean that passengers are more at risk of injury when a bus is involved in a collision. If you, or a loved one, have been injured in a bus accident, a North Miami attorney from Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, P.A. could channel our extensive legal experience and knowledge into recovering maximum compensation on your behalf.

Recovering damages after a bus accident can be particularly complex, as there are several people and parties who may be deemed responsible, including:

  • The bus driver
  • The owner of the bus, including the state of Florida, other government bodies, and private bus companies, as applicable
  • The person or company responsible for maintaining the bus
  • The manufacturer of the bus, or of any part which was found to be defective and causing the accident
  • The Florida municipality where the bus accident happened
  • Another person or party whose negligence caused the North Miami bus accident

Causes Bus Accidents
In North Miami, Florida?

As buses use the same roads and are, for the most part, subject to the same legislation as cars and other vehicles, the common causes of North Miami bus accidents are similar to those contributing to car accidents. These tend to include, although are not limited to:

  • Tired or fatigued bus drivers, perhaps due to excessive driving hours without a break
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs and alcohol
  • Distracted driving, including texting or otherwise using a cellphone while driving
  • Inadequately trained bus drivers
  • Driving on an unfamiliar route
  • Failure to follow traffic regulations, including running a red light
  • Overloaded buses
  • Poorly-maintained buses

Any of these can contribute to significant injuries, and even fatalities. While handling numerous North Miami bus accident cases, our attorneys regularly encounter injuries such as:

  • Brain injuries
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • Paralysis

Whatever injuries you, or your loved one, has sustained, an experienced North Miami bus accident attorneycan provide the legal guidance and support you require.

Expert Legal Representation
To Ensure A Successful Outcome
From Your North Miami Bus Accident Case

While a North Miami bus accident attorney can successfully handle any type of bus accident, it is important to be aware that the approach we take will vary depending on the circumstances. For example, a lawsuit relating to a school bus accident will be different to one involving a commuter service. However, there are some similarities and, in both cases, we can pursue monetary damages in respect of:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish

If you have lost a loved one due to a North Miami bus accident, you may be eligible to file for wrongful death compensation.

One final point to bear in mind is that bus accidents involving a bus which is owned, operated or maintained by the government have limitations on the amount of damages you can recover. If your damages total more than $200,000, sovereign immunity means you may need to name more than one defendant.

To discuss sovereign immunity, wrongful death compensation, or any other aspect of your North Miami bus accident case with an experienced attorney, call us today on 305-931-6666 to schedule your initial consultation.
