Buses in Miami are EVERYWHERE. Connecting us to our beautiful shopping centers, entertainment areas, hospitals, workplaces, and schools — Many Floridians rely on these essential bus services every day.
A bus is classified in the US as a vehicle transporting nine or more passengers at one time. This generally includes school buses, transit buses, airport buses, intercity buses, and tour buses. While almost 90% of Florida residents live within close proximity to these services, even if you are not a passenger, you are likely to come into close contact with buses regularly.

We understand victims can be left with lost wages, medical bills, property damage, and long-lasting pain. Neufeld Law Firm wants you to focus on getting BACK TO NORMAL, while we pursue the compensation you are entitled to. If you’ve been involved in a bus, truck, boat, or any other type of car accident, choose a team of lawyers that know how to WIN.
A bus can be one of the safest methods of transportation… But they are not accident-free vehicles. With the sheer number of daily users, bus accidents can still be quite common occurrences. There are a number of unique risk factors in place that could lead to serious injury in a Miami bus accident:
Being involved in a bus accident can be VERY confusing for anyone involved. These accidents can quickly escalate into hazardous HIGH TRAFFIC situations involving personal injury and property damage. Victims are often unsure of who to contact, what information is needed, and ultimately what to do in these situations.
Always make sure the scene is SAFE! — If there are ANY injuries whatsoever the police MUST be contacted. The authorities will call all necessary medical resources for anyone injured.
You will need to remain at the scene of the accident, or in safe proximity until the authorities arrive to complete a police report. Note the officer's name, and badge number to help you easily obtain your report once it's filed.
Next, you should gather as much information from those involved as possible. This includes the drivers of any vehicles, passengers of the bus, or any others who may have witnessed the accident. Witness statements can prove to be extremely beneficial when building your claims. As a driver of any vehicle involved in the accident, you are required to share your insurance information with all other parties.
Got a mobile phone? Take pictures of the accident. Record the location the accident happened at, any property damage, any injuries that were incurred. Take pictures of license plates and insurance cards for quick reference when completing your statements. A time-stamped photo could be an important piece of evidence that helps win your case.
Your injury may not hurt immediately — Pain could set in hours, days, or even weeks after the initial accident. Even if your injuries were not severe enough to be taken to the hospital from the accident, you should always VISIT A DOCTOR right away to document any injuries for your report.
