Buses are a sound way to get around for people in Tallahassee and throughout Florida. The idea that using public transportation is good for safety and convenience is widespread and, in general, accurate. However, an auto accident can occur at any time and it can even injure those who are in a large and heavy vehicle like a bus. When there is a collision, people who have suffered injuries or even lost a loved one should be cognizant of the potential aftereffects from medical expenses to lost time on the job to long-term damage and death. A legal filing is a way to recover compensation for all that was lost.
When Floridians are in a passenger vehicle and are sharing the road with a large truck, there is an understandable fear. Not only are these vehicles massive, but they travel at significant speeds and drivers can be distracted, negligent, reckless or under the influence. One issue that had receded into the background was the amount of time truckers spent on the road and whether truck driver fatigue was a factor. The vigilance drivers are required to have with their trucking log and oversight on the part of the Department of Transportation was meant to enhance safety.
