Do I Qualify for Compensation After an Aventura Bus Accident?

If you suffered a bus accident within Aventura, the law allows you to file for compensation in the form of an injury claim. Further, if you suffered pain due to injuries, you could claim damages in many forms, including lost wages, medical costs, and emotional trauma.

Who Is to Blame for My Injuries?

It can be a complex affair determining fault for your bus accident injuries. This can be complicated since many parties may be involved in the accident. Sometimes the bus driver can be held primarily responsible for the accident. In this case, the transportation company could be held liable for the accident. Otherwise, the jury may find both parties accountable for the accident.

Florida is classified as a "no-fault state," which means you should first contact your insurer before filing an injury claim. Suppose the monetary aspect exceeds the terms of your policy. In that case, you may make a compensation claim against the city, the government, the bus driver, or the transportation company. However, there's a time limit within which you can file a claim against any governmental institution in Florida.

The regulation also means drivers will first turn to their insurer to compensate them and recover other losses and injuries sustained in a bus accident regardless of who is responsible. If your bus accident injuries are minor, filing such a claim may not be necessary. Nevertheless, you may file a claim if you sustained severe injuries.

What Would It Cost Me to Hire a Lawyer From Dolman Law Group?

Our team typically charges clients on a contingency basis. Essentially, this means we won't charge you anything unless we win the case and secure a settlement for your bus accident injury claim.

We certainly understand the importance of getting results for clients. Our attorneys will work diligently on your case. We have decades of experience handling insurance companies and have helped thousands win damages.

What's the Deadline To File a Lawsuit in Florida?

Florida Statutes § 95.11 generally prescribes no more than four years from the date of a bus accident to file your claim. You may file a compensation claim from the driver involved or another party responsible for your injuries in the accident.

Don't be pressured by your insurer to accept an offer too soon. It's perfectly within your right to wait. You only have to observe the Florida statute of limitations terms.
