Fort Myers Bus Accident Lawyer

Commercial Bus Accidents in the Fort Myers Area

All commercial buses are regulated federally, and drivers are required to be trained, as well as adhere to regulations while behind the wheel. These regulations include:

  • The number of hours a bus driver is allowed to drive during a specific period of time
  • The speed at which the bus is allowed to travel
  • Weight of the bus
  • Bus maintenance
  • Safety systems and more

There are often very serious injuries when a commercial bus is involved in a collision or rollover.

There is currently no federal requirement regarding seat belts, air bags or other safety features as are required on regular passenger vehicles. The lack of these safety features has led to many very serious injuries or fatalities, when passengers are thrown around in the cabin in a collision or rollover.

Bus Accident Attorney Serving the Fort Myers Area: Claims and Compensation

The process by which financial compensation is recovered can be complex. These commercial buses are insured by commercial insurance companies. The insurance companies are similar to car insurance companies in that the insurer is hoping that the settlements are low; the profits for the firm can be greatly reduced when negligence is established as the underlying cause of an accident, as is often the case.

An injured person can be facing a long uphill battle when trying to get financial compensation for damages. Searching for a lawyer for a bus accident in Fort Myers, FL? At Pittman Law Firm, P.L., we have extensive experience in negotiating fair settlements with commercial insurance companies, as well as in litigation if there is any delay or a refusal to pay an injured passenger fair compensation.
