In a motor vehicle accident, under Florida law, each driver is responsible for his or her own percentage of fault. For example, if both drivers are 50% at fault, you can only recover 50% of the total damages against the other driver or their insurance company.
If the other driver involved in the collision doesn't have insurance, and you have uninsured motorist (UM) coverage on your vehicle, or any relative in your household has UM coverage, you may recover from your insurance company the same amount of damages as if the other driver had insurance.
Even if you are a victim of a hit and run driver, or you are a pedestrian and hit by an unidentified vehicle, you may recover from your own insurance company under your UM coverage.

Buses are largely safer than cars, but that doesn’t mean they are free from risk. As a matter of fact, over 15,000 people are hospitalized every year after being involved with a bus accident. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed while riding a bus, please call a top accident attorney from The Bernstein Law Firm.
It does not matter whether the accident was caused by the driver of another vehicle or the bus driver in accidents like these. When you board the bus, you sacrifice your right to control your situation, which means the bus company takes on the highest level of responsibilities for these common carriers. If passengers are not safely taken to their destinations, the company is liable. When the accident was caused by the other driver, your accident lawyer can help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve by negotiating with the other driver’s insurance company and the bus company. He can make sure you receive compensation for your pain, suffering, medical expenses and lost wages related to the accident.
Our Accident Attorney Represents Clients Involved in All Kinds of Accidents
Of course, it is important to remember that not all bus accidents are a result of a crash. If you slipped while walking down the aisle or if a piece of luggage fell from an overhead storage area and struck you in your head, you would still be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the company for your pain and suffering. Your accident lawyer can make sure you receive compensation from any bus accident, whether it be a crash or a simple slip and fall injury.
When you or a loved one has been injured while riding a bus, please call our offices as soon as possible to discuss your case with a top accident attorney.
Since the late 1970's, large trucks have accounted for approximately 12% of all fatal traffic related crashes. Because of the excessive size and weight of trucks and their cargos, smaller passenger vehicles (automobiles) are always exposed to great risk and injury upon impact. Truck driver fatigue, inadequate training, inexperience, and excessive speed are often common causes of truck accidents. Many times trucks are overloaded with freight, or their equipment malfunctions due to lack of proper maintenance, including the continued use of faulty parts or defective tires.
Truck accidents often cause serious injuries. You need an experienced accident lawyer on your side to ensure you recieve the compensation you require for your injury.

Semi-trucks are always a danger on the roadway, even when traveling at a lower speed.
While the average driver can most always see large vehicles on the road, the driver of a semi-truck may not be able to see the cars in the next lane. Negligent driving, poor weather and road conditions often cause semi-truck accidents. They can even be the result of mechanical malfunctions from parts of the truck that need repair.
Trucking companies must also be held liable for the actions of their drivers and the accidents they cause. If you have been injured in a semi-truck accident that was not your fault, you are owed compensation for any medical bills, property damage, and pain and suffering.

A motorcycle accident can result in severe injury or death far more often than other types of motor vehicle accidents. Because of lack of protection, a rider on a motorcycle is at much greater risk of severe injury than an occupant of a car or truck. Motorcycle accidents commonly occur when the driver of a car or truck fails to yield the right of way. Motorcycles are more difficult to notice than automobiles and therefore their riders are exposed to far more risk of physical injury than drivers of larger and heavier motor vehicles.
