Our Lawyers Assist Persons Injured in Bus Accidents
Everyone expects to be safe when using public transportation. Despite this expectation, every year many people are injured in bus accidents in Gainesville and throughout Florida. The number of people injured as a result of such accidents multiplies the tragedy of a bus accident.
School buses, as well as other commercial buses, are oftentimes much harder to control in difficult conditions and the collision will affect more people than an accident involving a passenger car. Sometimes, bus accidents are caused when the bus driver is unfamiliar with the roadway, has driver fatigue, or is unskilled in handling such a large vehicle. Other factors can cause a bus accident, such as bad weather conditions, improper bus maintenance, equipment failure, or driving on roads that were not designed well to handle larger vehicles.
