Bus & Taxi Accident Lawyer in Tampa
Don't Be Harmed By Trusted Drivers
When we hire the services of a taxi or limousine or get on a bus, we expect
that we will arrive at our destination safely and in one piece. Unfortunately,
auto accidents affect all vehicles on the road, including those for private and public
transportation. If you, a friend or a family member has been
injured in any type of bus or taxi accident in the Tampa area, please do not hesitate
to contact Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law today. An experienced
bus accident attorney in Tampa can talk to you about the accident and
your legal rights in this regard.
People use taxis and buses for convenience, to ensure they do not drive
drunk and to get to and from places of interest while out of town on business
or pleasure. Some people rely upon taxis and buses for their primary means
of transportation if they do not have a vehicle of their own or do not
have a driver's license. When we get into a taxi cab or bus, we are
essentially placing our health and safety in the hands of the driver.
We rightfully expect that we will get from point A to point B safely.
Unfortunately, if the driver is negligent in any way, this can result in
catastrophic injuries or possibly even
death to the unsuspecting passenger.
Common Bus Accident Causes and Injuries
Every year, thousands of injuries and
deaths are caused by negligent conduct on the part of taxi and bus drivers. Because
these individuals are responsible for so many others when they drive,
they should exercise even more caution on the road and in some cases should
be specially trained to operate their vehicle (as in the case of a large bus.)
Drinking on the job, inexperience, a poor driving record and a number of
other factors may all be grounds to hold the driver or the bus or taxi
company responsible for your injuries. By fully investigating all aspects
of the accident and your injuries, we can work to discover the true cause
of the accident and then prove liability.
A taxi cab or bus accident may leave you with serious injuries, including
spinal cord injuries,
broken bones, fractures,
head trauma, and internal organ damage. Treatment for these can be very expensive,
and you are likely to miss work while recovering. How will you pay these
medical bills? What will you do to pay your living expenses while you
are unable to work? You can answer these questions and many more by consulting
a taxi cab accident attorney at our firm.
