Bus accidents and other accidents involving large commercial vehicles are quite likely to leave at least one person seriously injured.
For one, the size difference between a commercial vehicle and a private passenger vehicle is significant, meaning that the smaller car, and the people inside it, usually bears the full brunt of the accident.
It is not a surprise, then, that people walk away with very serious injuries, including permanent injuries to the spinal cord or to the brain. These injuries can leave a person needing a lifetime of medical care and relying completely on others for support. Such injuries can cost a person millions of dollars just in actual financial losses, not to mention the fact that their pain and suffering also has value.
Because the stakes are so high, it is often a good idea for a victim of a commercial vehicle accident to get the help of an experienced attorney who has knowledge of how the different courts operate in the counties in and around the Tampa area.
