Fatal Transit Bus Crashes in Florida

Brandon, FL - One Killed in Crash with HART Bus at Kings Ave & Hickory Lakes DrTransit buses can be a threat when not operated correctly. A HART bus driver was cited in a collision that resulted in 9 hospitalizations in July 2013. The bus driver was charged with cutting in front of a car and crashing it. Passengers on buses accounted for seven of the injuries. A motorcycle rider was tragically murdered in a collision with a HART bus in April 2013.

In the state of Florida, the only people who are eligible to submit a claim for wrongful death are those who had a personal connection to the person who passed away. Legal action for wrongful death is distinct from criminal prosecution. The party that is deemed to be at fault may be subjected to both types of proceedings simultaneously. It is possible that you have the legal right to seek compensation if the death of a loved one was caused by the negligence or carelessness of another person.

For those who do not have a significant amount of expertise in the law, the process of filing a lawsuit and interacting with the legal system in Florida may be extremely difficult and perplexing. We are aware that there is no amount of monetary compensation that can fix the emotional pain that you are undoubtedly going through. We still believe that it is important for you to receive compensation because it can help support you financially and act as evidence that some form of justice has been served.

If you have lost a loved one as a result of an event that was not their fault, then you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim. A Brandon HART but crash lawyer at Rebein Law will be able to assist you with this process. If this describes your situation, then you should seek the assistance of a wrongful death attorney.
