- Investigation to collect evidence to support your claim.
- Expert consultation, such as accident reconstruction, if needed.
- Identifying the parties responsible for the accident.
- Filing a claim with their insurance carriers.
- Negotiating with insurance companies.
- Filing a lawsuit if the other party refuses to settle.
Can I Sue a Bus Company After an Accident?
Yes, you can if there's evidence to suggest that the bus driver, the company, or any of its employees acted negligently or failed to fulfill their duty of care, leading to the accident. This can include situations where:
- the bus driver was driving recklessly;
- the bus company failed to maintain the vehicle properly;
- the bus company was negligent in its hiring process (hired underqualified drivers to cut costs, for example); or
- the company did not adequately train or supervise its drivers.
Recoverable Bus Accident Damages Under Florida's No-Fault Laws
In the Sunshine State, if you're involved in a bus accident, your own Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance initially covers you, regardless of who was at fault. This coverage can help with medical expenses and lost wages, but it has limits. PIP typically covers up to 80% of your medical expenses and 60% of lost wages, up to the limits of your policy, which is usually $10,000. However, the severity of bus accidents often means that damages exceed these limits.
If you sustained serious injuries—typically involving significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function, permanent injury, significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement, or death—you may step outside the no-fault system and pursue a claim against the at-fault party. In such cases, you can seek compensation for the full range of damages to which you may be entitled.
