Passenger Van and Private Bus Accidents


Passenger vans and private buses are frequently used for short travel to and from the airport, from hotels and popular destinations, or even for group events. These modes of transportation can also be used for longer trips. You may have found yourself involved in a passenger van and private bus accident in Miami and may have sustained injuries to your body and damage to your property. Acting quickly is essential to protecting yourself from further loss and to giving yourself the greatest chance of a fair recovery. Let our experienced attorneys help you file your personal injury claim today.

Given their larger-than-average size, buses and vans tend to be less stable on the road and more prone to rolling over, leading to catastrophic injuries for the individuals inside. Buses and vans can also cause significant impact to those in other vehicles, resulting in serious injuries. You or a loved one may have suffered irreparable brain, spinal cord, or bone injuries that have caused you to lose time from work, more importantly decreasing your quality of life. Your case is worth fighting for, and we’re here to fight alongside you. With over 100 years of cumulative experience guiding clients and challenging huge insurance companies, Friedman, Rodman, and Frank are prepared to help you navigate through the legal system.

Post Passenger Van and Private Bus Accidents

Acting quickly can make a vast difference in any case, especially when considering the extent of damage you may have received. Do not allow the hardships you and your family member have endured to detain you from seeking help immediately because the sooner you have an attorney on your side, the better the chances of making a successful claim against the party at fault. Remember that the culpable party will do anything in its power to try to show that he or she was not at fault. So, it is important for our firm to obtain evidence in support of your claim as soon as possible.

After you’ve been in an accident, being medically examined by a professional should be the first thing on your list. You’ll want to be evaluated even if you are showing no initial symptoms, as often the symptoms develop later on. This will help you receive better care and documentation supporting your injury claim.

Contact the authorities if you believe the driver was driving under the influence of a substance or was otherwise impaired leading to the accident. It is important that all involved parties are vetted at the scene of the accident in order to substantiate your claim against those who were at fault. Once he or she leaves the scene, it is much more difficult.

If you have personal insurance that can cover your injuries, be sure to report the accident. The insurer that provides coverage for the bus or van will begin to try to quickly mount evidence in their favor. Therefore, make sure you can collect your evidence efficiently. We use the help of technical experts and investigators when pursuing your claim because they are capable of delivering information that can help your case that an untrained eye not in the field might have missed.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
