Workers’ Compensation

People who get hurt or sick at work have the right to state workers’ compensation benefits to cover lost income and health costs. In many cases, sick and injured workers find collecting these benefits to be difficult and complex.

If you have been injured or become ill at work, you may have questions about how to claim and get workers’ compensation. The best way to get answers and receive guidance through the process is to seek advice from an experienced New Port Richey attorney who understands the procedures and laws surrounding workers’ compensation in Florida. This is the best way to become informed of your options and to collect the benefits to which you are entitled.

Common Injuries from Bus Accidents

Bus passengers have very little protection at the time of an accident. Many buses do not have seat belts, so a collision can severely jar a passenger around – especially a young child. Passengers commonly strike the inside of the bus, including windows, walls, and floors, which can lead to several traumatic injuries. Some passengers might fall through windows or on top of one another if a bus rolls over.

Passengers are not the only ones who might suffer injuries, as a bus might collide with another car, injuring the occupants. Buses are much larger than passenger cars, so they often cause serious injuries and damage in a collision.

Common injuries that victims sustain in bus crashes include:

  • Soft tissue contusions
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic head and brain injuries
  • Lacerations and abrasions
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Crush injuries

Following an accident, the injured victim may require significant medical care. Some injuries might heal after a few weeks or months, but they still leave behind costly medical bills. A child might miss school and fall behind if they have severe injuries. An injured adult might miss work and lose income.

Other injuries have lasting effects, and a victim might have their entire life changed by the bus crash. In tragic scenarios, bus accident victims do not survive their injuries.

If you or your child has sustained any of these injuries in a bus accident, the Tampa bus accident attorneys at Lucas, Macyszyn & Dyer Injury Firm are here to help. Our team can handle all of the legal aspects of the case while your child focuses on getting better and fully recovering from their accident-related injuries.
