Bus Accidents

Bus Accidents Are a Common and Tragic Type of Florida Auto Accident

Last year 12,000 people were seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a bus. Because of the large amount of people that passenger busses carry, this type of Florida auto accident impacts a staggering number of people in the state each year.

The immense size and weight of passenger and commercial busses, as well as their large capacity, make busses especially hazardous for passengers, drivers, pedestrians and other cars on the road. In addition, the lack of seat belts for passengers often creates an added hazard.

Florida bus accidents can pose a threat to a variety of people. Bus accidents can affect not only passengers but also other individuals including:

  • Pedestrians or bikers
  • Other motor vehicles
  • People boarding or exiting a bus

Because busses are considered common carriers under Florida state law, bus drivers and owners are required to adhere to exceptionally high standards of safety. When these parties fail to adhere to these standards, the consequences can be devastating and tragic.

In the event that someone is injured or killed in a Florida car wreck involving a bus, any number of people could be held liable. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Inattentive or reckless bus operators
  • Poorly trained drivers
  • Mechanical error
  • Faulty equipment
