Injured in a bus accident in Coral Springs? Our Coral Springs Personal Injury Lawyers Are Ready to Help!

Unfortunately, school and public bus accidents are too common. Charter, tour, or school bus transportation systems are convenient alternatives for individuals who do not own motor vehicles, do not have time to drop off or pick up their children at school, or traveling long distances. However, due to the large vehicle size and lack of seat belts in many buses, children, passengers, and travelers are at a risk for enduring serious injuries in the event of a bus accident.
