Did This Florida Shuttle Company Hire Unsafe Drivers?

This past week, Broward County officials put the ShuttlePort airport shuttle service company, on notice for having drivers with unsafe numbers of violations. According to officials, at least eight of the company’s drivers have too many violations to qualify for a contract with Broward County.

The interest by officials comes from a fatal collision that occurred recently involved a ShuttlePort driver who had an inadequate driving record to be working for the company. An investigation into that fatal car accident showed that the driver in question had six points on his driving records. Although no charges have yet been laid in the accident, the crash is still under investigation. However, the contract between ShuttlePort and Broward County does state that all drivers hired by the company must have less than three points on their record. Based on this, charges are possible against ShuttlePort.

Although the recent fatal car accident is the first involving one of ShuttlePort’s drivers, the company’s possible violations are a cause of concern. Although many people assume that car accidents usually involve personal vehicles, many thousands of people each year are injured or killed when using taxi cabs, shuttle buses, and other transportation services.

If you are involved in a car accident in a shuttle bus, taxi, or other public or commercial vehicle, it is important that you:

*Get the name and contact information of any other drivers or persons involved in the car accident.
*Get as much information as possible about the incident and the company. At the very least, get the driver name and contact information, the name and contact information of the company the driver works for, and the registration number of the car you are in.
*Get the names and contact information for any witnesses to the accident.
*Take photos of the accident scene, if possible.
*Get medical attention at once and get medical attention for anyone involved in the accident. Get a doctor to document your injuries thoroughly.
*Contact a good personal injury lawyer to help you get the best medical treatment and the best legal help possible.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
