At our firm, your case will receive the individualized attention that it deserves.
While the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) has required all passenger vehicles to be equipped with seatbelts since 1968, buses are strangely exempt from this rule. Given the absence of seatbelts for passengers and the massive size advantage of commercial buses over most other vehicles, collisions involving buses can cause incredible devastation to all parties involved. If you have been injured in a bus accident either as a pedestrian, driver, or passenger, a highly-trained Coral Springs personal injury lawyer from the Law Offices of Jason S. Goodman, P.A. can help.
Having represented the rights of injured clients for more than 25 years, our founding lawyer Jason S. Goodman has an intimate understanding of the strategies necessary to maximize your chances of securing the compensation they deserve. Having recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of our past clients, your case is sure to be in excellent hands.

Common Causes of Bus Accidents
A bus accident can be caused by a nearly infinite number of circumstances, though in many cases they occur as a direct result of some form of negligence. Collisions involving commercial buses can expose those involved to a wide range of serious injuries, including broken bones, whiplash, concussions, brain damage, spinal cord damage, and in serious cases, death.
A bus accident can be caused by any of the following negligent acts:
- Driving while distracted
- Driving while exhausted
- Driving under the influence
- Failing to check blind spots
- Skipping bus safety inspections
- Improper bus maintenance
If it can be proven that your collision was the result of another party’s careless or reckless actions, you may be able to recover monetary compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and earning ability, rehabilitation costs, property damage, and pain and suffering. If you have lost a loved one as the result of injuries sustained in a bus accident, you may be able to secure additional compensation for wrongful death.
