Dealing with the company’s insurance carriers directly is generally not a good idea.
More and more the Tampa Bay and Clearwater area general public relies on public transportation. These days for personal, economic and environmental reasons a bus or trolley may be used for shorter trips and trains are a great alternative for longer rides.
With the rise of DUI arrests, we have seen an increase in the number of individuals who are opting for Uber, Lyft or some other type of shuttle service to avoid driving while impaired. Some people still use cab services. Children are transported to schools on school buses.
These public transportation services are great alternatives to driving. Passengers should be aware that public communication service companies are required to use the “highest degree of care” in transporting. This level of care is higher than the negligence standard in a regular automobile accident.
If you have been in an accident involving the public transportation or transit industry, you should be aware of a few important details. Most transportation companies are large corporate entities that have a lot of money and endless legal resources. Dealing with these companies directly is not in your best interest. Dealing with the company’s insurance carriers directly is generally not a good idea.

If you are injured on someone’s property, seek the advice of our experienced personal injury litigation attorneys today.
Premises liability is a form of negligence under Florida law. The legal concept comes into play when someone is injured on another person or company’s property. Florida law holds landowners responsible for certain injuries that occur on their property. The property owner may be a private individual or a large corporation. The duty of care varies depending on the type of property owner. Businesses generally have a higher duty of care towards their business visitors. This makes sense because we want business owners to protect consumers and customers that enter their property boundaries. Businesses are required to regularly inspect their property and keep it free of potentially dangerous or hazardous situations or defects.
Homeowners have a lower standard of care but still can be held responsible for injuries under a premise liability claim. Homeowners are required to warn and keep social guests safe. Social guests, in general, must be warned of unsafe conditions.
If you are injured on someone’s property you will need to seek the advice of an experienced personal injury litigation attorney. These cases are commonly known, yet property owners are not automatically liable for injuries that occur of their property. The injury must have been caused by an unsafe condition or defect.
