Miami Beach is a resort town located on a barrier island off the coast of Florida. It was incorporated in March 1915 and has since grown to a population of more than 92,300. Millions of tourists visit the area each year, which creates crowded conditions on the beach, sidewalks, and roads.
Miami Beach is served by the Metrobus system, including an express bus Route 150 between Miami Beach and the Miami International Airport. This route stops at 41st Street, Alton Road, Collins Avenue, Lincoln Road, and Washington Avenue.
Another popular bus in Miami Beach is Route 120. This is a circular route that stops at popular destinations in Miami Beach, Surfside, Bal Harbour, Aventura Mall, and Haulover Park Marina.
Metrobuses are hardly the only buses on the road. You may utilize other passenger buses to get to Miami Beach. If you are part of a large group, you may have your own charter bus for your trip. You also may utilize smaller shuttle buses provided by your hotels.
Miami Beach also offers a free trolley Monday through Saturday, 6 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday, 8 a.m. to midnight. The Miami Beach Loop and North Beach Loop come about every 15 minutes. The Collins Express comes about every 17 minutes. The South Beach Loops A and B come every 20 minutes, and the South Beach Loop via 11 Street comes about every 40 minutes.

At Gerson & Schwartz P.A., our Miami Beach bus accident attorneys handle all types of claims. We are experienced in addressing injury claims that arise from incidents that occur on buses. Whether you were injured because of a physical assault that took place on the bus, a careless and sudden stop that sent you flying forward, or because of a single-bus crash, we are here to help.
Many of the cases we take on are due to car-bus collisions. After a crash, we conduct an in-depth investigation into what went wrong and who was at fault. We will determine whether the bus driver or the personal vehicle driver caused the wreck. We can take on your claim whether you were on the bus and injured when a car caused a collision or when you were in a personal vehicle and struck by a negligent bus driver.
We also represent pedestrians who are injured in bus crashes. We have handled many claims in which a negligent bus driver or other motorist causes a significant crash that injures passengers and nearby pedestrians.Were You Injured in a Crash Involving Public Transportation?
If you were injured in a crash involving a Metrobus, the Miami Beach Trolley, or another form of public transportation, you need to call a Miami Beach bus accident lawyer right away. When the bus driver or trolley operator is at fault for the crash, then your claim is not against a private individual or business. Instead, your claim is against the government agency that operates the public bus or trolley system.
When you need to go up against a municipality in pursuit of compensation, you need to talk with a lawyer right away. Your claim may be limited by Florida Sovereign Immunity laws. You also face much harsher time restrictions than if you had a typical personal injury claim.
A bus accident attorney in Miami Beach will guide you through filing a notice of claim against the appropriate government agency. It can be frustrating to wait, but you must then allow the government six months to make a decision and respond. Only after the six months can you take additional steps, such as filing a lawsuit.
Also, when your claim is against public transportation, your compensation is limited. Florida limits compensation paid by government agencies to $200,000 per person. If the accident led to more than one injury claim, the limit increases to $300,000.Call Our Miami Beach Bus Accident Lawyers for Help Today
