Injured in an accident involving a bus? The Perazzo Law Firm provides legal representation to those injured because of a bus crash in Miami or any of the Cities We Serve
Miami roadways have a constant flow of buses crossing the State of Florida, and though taking a bus is safer than driving a car, buses on occasion get into accidents. And when they do, the results can be devastating and sometimes tragic. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were close to 2,000 bus accidents over a seven year period, with over 1300 fatalities and some 3500 reported injuries as a result. Though not all bus accident injuries involve the passengers on the bus, but rather those that may be on the receiving end of an impact with a bus. A bus traveling at high speed on a Miami highway may crash into another vehicle and trigger a chain reaction of collisions and motorist mayhem. Buses are heavy and tall vehicles that unless they flip over, passengers may not necessarily suffer serious personal injury from a bus crash. Nevertheless, Perazzo Law urges bus accident passengers to seek medical attention and legal representation if they have suffered a bump on the head or been propelled in any direction because of a bus crash on a Miami highway. Perazzo Law is fully-dedicated to seeking compensation for its personal injury clients and families.
Bus accidents on city streets can be a serious safety issue, as they can result in injuries or even fatalities for passengers on the bus, pedestrians, and occupants of other vehicles involved in the accident. There are many potential causes of bus accidents on city streets, including driver error, vehicle malfunction, poor road conditions, and traffic congestion.
To prevent bus accidents on city streets, it is important to address these underlying causes. This can involve improving driver training and supervision, ensuring that buses are properly maintained and inspected, improving road infrastructure and traffic flow, and implementing policies that discourage dangerous driving behavior.
In addition, it is important for city officials to work with public transportation companies to develop and implement safety protocols and procedures. This may include regular safety audits, ongoing driver training and education, and regular maintenance and inspection of buses.
Ultimately, preventing bus accidents on city streets requires a comprehensive and collaborative approach, involving government agencies, public transportation companies, and other stakeholders to ensure that the safety of all road users is prioritized.

Transit Bus Accidents
Transit bus accidents are not very common in Miami but they do happen. Miami-Dade Transit Public transit carries over 390,000 commuters per day over a distance of 30 miles, and with some 815 buses in operation, the chances for a bus accident exist. But what to do if you are in a bus accident in Miami? The Perazzo Law Firm recommends that you first analyze the situation surrounding the accident. See the examples below:
- I was injured as a passenger on a Miami Transit Bus.
- I was travelling on a transit bus when it crashed into another vehicle.
- I was on a transit bus when a motor vehicle crashed into the bus.
- I was a on passenger bus that lost control and crashed on a Miami highway.
- I was in my car when a transit bus crashed into me.
- I was run over by a transit bus while crossing at an intersection.
- A friend or relative was run over by a transit bus.
The situation above exist. Transit bus do get into accidents. And do transit buses have seat belts? No, they don't. Thus, a transit bus traveling at a moderate speed can cause a passenger's head to be jerked forward or cause a passenger to fall on the bus upon sudden impact. Furthermore, transit buses may sometimes run into pedestrians or other motor vehicles as a result of third party negligence. When a transit bus runs over a pedestrian, the result may be serious if not tragic. Pedestrians, cyclists, and scooter riders may suffer bodily injury that may require medical intervention and rehabilitation. Bus accident victims must seek professional medical attention immediately following a transit bus accident in Miami. The Perazzo Law Firm urges that transit bus accident victims in Miami contact their medical healthcare practitioner and our personal injury offices in Miami or North Miami Beach for ZERO OUT-OF-POCKET representation. We strive to make sure our personal injury bus accident clients get the money they deserve for their injuries, damages, and losses.
