Helping The Victims Of Bus Accidents With Their Injury Claims
Interstate 75, a road that goes right through Ocala, is one of the most common routes that buses take. With more buses in the area, more bus accidents do occur there. Whether you were a passenger on a bus or you were in a car that a bus hit, the city or the bus driver may be liable for your injuries.
Our lawyers at Piccin & Glynn have more than 70 combined years of experience representing accident victims. The efforts of our personal injury attorneys have helped clients earn settlements and verdicts worth millions of dollars and more, and our team is prepared to help you hold the liable party accountable for your injuries as well.
Understanding Negligence In A Bus Accident
Most bus drivers have a duty to obey the rules of the road and drive defensively. When they fail that duty, whether it is by speeding, driving while distracted or engaging in other reckless habits, they might be the ones responsible for your injury compensation.
However, if the city that employs the driver forces them to work long hours, causing exhaustion; fails to train the driver or ensure that the driver has the necessary training, or encourages the driver to ignore safety regulations, it may be the one ultimately liable for the cost of your recovery.
Our lawyers have also helped clients secure compensation for injuries that were sustained in other types of accidents on buses, such as slip-and-falls on unclean buses or fights on buses that drivers failed to end. The bottom line is that if you were hurt on or by a city bus or tour bus, our team can help.
Gathering Evidence For Your Claim
As our attorneys build your accident claim, they will look into the evidence available, including that retrieved from the Event Data Recorder (EDR) on the bus, which captures the figures and details of the bus leading up to the accident, or the Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) that most tour buses have. These and other pieces of evidence can be instrumental to your claim, and our lawyers are committed to finding all the evidence they can to maximize the compensation you earn.
