Orange County has a wide variety of options for people who wish to use mass transit to get around. Mass transit is an affordable and reliable way for Orange County residents to get where they need to go. With that said, trains and buses are capable of causing great harm in the event of an unfortunate accident. Bus riders, drivers of other vehicles, and pedestrians crossing the path of busses are potential victims of bus accidents. Although trains don’t share the roads with other vehicles, they can still cause traumatic injuries if an accident occurs. If you have been injured in a train or bus accident, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim. Cressman Law Firm, P.A. can help you file and defend a claim in an effort to collect the compensation you deserve. Contact us for a free consultation to discuss your legal matter.
The LYNX Bus Service and LYMMO Downtown Circulator are great options for people in Orange County who wish to travel by bus. If a bus accident occurs, however, passengers can be seriously injured because most of these vehicles do not come with seatbelts. If you are injured in a bus accident, it is important to have strong legal advocacy guide you through each step of the claims process.
The state of Florida, including Orange County, is home to a number of different rail options. SunRail, Amtrak, and Brightline all serve the people of central Florida and allow them to easily get to and from their destinations. Train accidents are less common than bus accidents are but when they do happen, they are often very severe. Train accidents can be caused by operator speeding, derailment, sudden starting and stopping, and collisions with other trains.
If you happen to be involved in a bus accident and become injured, you should try to collect as much evidence at the scene as possible. This is important because you will be required to fulfill the burden of proof in order to have a successful personal injury claim. Some of the ways you can do this are by:
Taking photos of the accident
Collecting personal information from those involved
Save all damaged materials that might serve as evidence later
Obtain witness information if possible
