Limo and Party Bus Accidents
Florida accident attorneys hold negligent parties accountable
There’s nothing like climbing into a limousine or party bus for that special occasion, whether it is a night at the casino, a big football game, or the senior prom. And opting for this mode of transit is certainly preferable if alcohol consumption is involved. But regulations and safety standards of these types of vehicles are different than those of regular cars so it is important to understand the differences before you reserve your spot, or if you have been involved in a limo or party bus accident. Florida accident attorneys at Ged Lawyers, LLP hold negligent parties accountable and successfully recover just compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and other losses.
Safety standards for vehicles
While the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) establishes standards for newly manufactured vehicles, in some instances limousines are modified after they are off the assembly line. In this way, these modified vehicles bypass regulatory oversight. Modifications to a vehicle may affect the vehicle’s handling and its ability to tolerate crashes.
Limo accidents and personal injury law
Personal injury law is a broad area of law that applies to a variety of accidents, including slip and falls, dog bites, and vehicle accidents. When there is an accident involving a limousine or party bus, and the cause of the accident is negligence on the part of an individual or entity, then personal injury law provides protection for the injured. In the case of limo or party bus accidents, things become more complicated due to the number of entities who may have some level of responsibility for the accident. For example, the limo driver may at fault, or the manufacturer of the limousine may be liable, or perhaps the company responsible for maintenance of the limousine. Companies that operate a fleet of party buses can be intimidating in their size and scope, and go to great lengths to protect themselves and their business. It is in your best interests to discuss your limo accident with an experienced, accomplished accident attorney who is knowledgeable of the personal injury laws in the state in which the accident occurred.
What type of compensation can I receive for my limo accident?
When an individual has been injured in a limousine or party bus accident and they file a personal injury lawsuit, they are seeking compensatory damages for the injuries they sustained and other losses. Specifically, the injured party may receive compensation for any of the following:
- medical expenses resulting from the accident
- loss of income due to time away from work
- lost earned sick and vacation time
- pain and suffering
- mental anguish
