A: Yes there are many steps you should take before you file a lawsuit. You need to get to a doctor. You may need physical therapy and/or an MRI depending on your injuries. You should put the bus company on notice that you were hurt. You may also try to settle your case with the insurance company for the bus company prior to filing a lawsuit.

A: Contact a member of the Fla. Assn for Justice--they give free consultations. It's not d.i.y. time.
