Taking a bus or train can be a convenient and environmentally friendly mode of transportation. Although less common than other types of motor vehicle accidents, incidents involving a bus or train result in serious injuries.
Both the size and weight of busses and trains, as well as lack of seatbelts make passengers particularly vulnerable.
Fault and liability in bus and train incidents can complicate the aftermath of an accident, whether the vehicles involved are operated by public transit or owned by a private company. If safety features are not properly maintained, or drivers not properly trained, companies may be liable to compensate passengers injured in an incident involving their vehicles.
It can be difficult to assess the best course of action if you have been involved in a bus or train accident. If multiple passengers were involved, you may be wondering if joining a class-action lawsuit it your best option. Our experienced Personal Injury Group has acted for claimants in numerous cases involving public transit vehicles and are equipped to help you through the process.
