Bus accident related injuries happen every day. As many as 20,000 school bus accidents occur each year throughout the United States, with more than 15 deaths associated with such accidents. Buses are unique in the regard that they can hold many more people, often children, and they don’t require passengers to wear seat belts. Public buses and charters also usually allow you to freely move about in the cabin of the bus, or use the restroom when needed. With all of these distractions, and no restraints on passenger movements, it’s no wonder the severity of bus crashes are increasing as time goes on. At Catania & Catania we understand the laws regarding personal injury when involved in a bus style accident. Our Tampa bus crash attorneys are ready to take on your case, and help you win in the courtroom.
Not only can serious injuries occur inside the bus, but oftentimes accidents will happen while passengers are boarding or exiting the bus as well. In fact, the majority of bus-related injuries occur during this time. A common scenario involves cars unknowingly striking passengers exiting the bus, or while crossing the street in front of the bus. While each bus accident situation is unique, the fact remains that some party should be held negligent. Whether it’s the bus company, bus driver, or mindless motorist, you deserve to be compensated for any injuries sustained while riding or exiting a bus of any kind. In the event of a severe personal injury, the injured party and their immediate family members may be entitled to recover compensation for all past and future medical bills, lost wages, wrongful death, and pain and suffering. While no dollar amount can make up for your loss you are entitled to monetary recovery based on the negligence of another. Our Tampa law firm has knowledgeable bus accident lawyers ready to help you with your case today, and recover the fair amount you deserve.
Taxi accidents in Tampa are a common situation that must be addressed as soon they happen. Under the law here in Florida, taxi companies have been excluded from the state’s no fault insurance law. What this means is that if you’ve been injured as the result of a taxi accident, you can recover money based on damages you sustained without proving you’ve been permanently disabled. The amount of money you receive is based on how badly you’ve been hurt, and how negligent the taxi driver’s actions were at the time. Our Tampa taxi lawyers here at Catania & Catania have the experience necessary to help you receive the maximum compensation available for your loss or injuries sustained during a taxi accident.
Our taxi accident lawyers in Tampa know how to help you win your case. We’ve already successfully helped numerous other parties receive monetary awards based on their own taxi related incidents. We’ll fully investigate your claims, and go after the taxi insurance companies for the costs incurred as a result of your injuries. When you’ve been injured in a taxi accident, you are entitled to recover money for loss of income in the past or future, medical bills, pain and suffering, and any permanent loss you may have endured as a result of the taxi accident itself.
