Jacksonville Bus Accident Attorney
If you've been involved in a bus accident in Jacksonville, Florida, traffic and insurance laws allow the injured to file for compensation after such an accident. That said, you should expect the other party to fight back and try to settle for the lowest amount possible. That's because insurance companies mostly care about profits, not doing the right thing. If you're in such a situation, a Jacksonville bus accident attorney from Morgan and Morgan can help even the playing field. Contact us today to get started.

What Types of Buses Are Usually Involved in Accidents?
These accidents can occur on any type of bus, especially when negligence is a factor. Given that Jacksonville is home to several bus companies, including the Falcon Charter Bus, Jacksonville Charter Bus Company, Gogo Charters, ABSOLUTE Transportation Service, Kimberly Charters, and many others, our attorneys have witnessed different types of bus accident cases over the past few years.
These include but are not limited to accidents involving:
- City or urban transit buses
- School buses
- Charter buses
- Tour buses
- Shuttle buses (to and from airports, hotels, etc.)
- Double-decker buses
- Coach buses
- Party buses
- Intercity buses (e.g., Greyhound)
- Low-floor buses
Most of these buses operate right here in Jacksonville. Those that don't may still traverse this city on their way to other destinations across the state or country.
Liability in Bus Accident Cases
Many different gears work together for these buses to operate in our streets. The same applies to how liability plays out when someone gets involved in a bus accident. Sometimes, more than one party might be held responsible for the accident.
That said, common liable parties in such cases include:
- Bus driver
- Bus company or operator
- Bus manufacturer (in case of vehicle defects)
- Maintenance companies (for poor maintenance)
- Other drivers (in multi-vehicle accidents)
- School districts (for school bus accidents)
- Government entities (for public transit buses)
- Property owners (for accidents due to hazardous conditions on property)
- Construction companies (for accidents caused by road construction or poor road conditions)
Don't Be Another Statistic; You Deserve to Be Heard
A bus accident can change your life. You shouldn't walk away and become another statistic. If you don't take legal action, insurance companies will be smiling all the way to the bank. Even worse, such accidents will keep increasing due to a lack of accountability.
Don't be another statistic. Contact us today for a free case evaluation. Our Jacksonville bus accident lawyer might be able to help.
