As a West Palm Beach personal injury attorney I am all to familiar with auto accidents that involve trucks or buses. On October 17th a Broward County transit bus was hit by a tow truck. The accident ended up sending 32 passengers to several different hospitals in Broward and Dade Counties.
The tow truck rear-ended the bus while the bus was on Sample Road and stopped at 14th Avenue. The reported injuries, thankfully, all seem very promising with only one person having moderate injuries. The only 31 passengers were diagnosed with minor injuries that were caused by the car accident.
We never know when a car accident is going to happen or how severe that accident may be. It is important when we are driving on our roads in South Florida that we use great caution and adhere to all of the important safety laws of the roads. If you or a loved one has been involved in a West Palm Beach car accident there are several things that you should do. First and foremost is to seek medical treatment for all of the passengers that were involved in the car accident. Secondly, you should seek the advice of a qualified personal injury lawyer. An attorney will be able to help you understand what options you have and any legal actions you may be entitled to. Our office offers a free initial consultation and all of the cases that we take on are done on a contingent fee basis. This means that you will not owe us any money unless we are able to provide results and a cash settlement for you.
