Public Transportation Accident Injuries Including Buses and Trains

Posted by attorney Mitchell Sexner

Motor vehicle accidents don't just happen between automobiles and SUVs. Sometimes the drivers of trains, public buses, school buses, limousines, and taxis are responsible for serious injuries as well. An experienced attorney can represent you in any public transportation personal injury case involving these vehicles. Certain bus and commuter rail operators require special notice of claim provisions and have shorter deadlines for filing suit than do some regular auto claims. Experience in analyzing all aspects of such a claim and in dealing with municipal and metropolitan defendants can give you a critical advantage in recovering compensation for injuries resulting from bus or train accidents. Such attorneys can help unravel the complicated threads of corporate structure, regulatory requirements, local licensing requirements, and employment relationships to make sure that all of the parties who need to be sued are actually held responsible for your personal injuries.

Public transportation accident injuries can be severe and in some circumstances fatal. When not fatal, they may still significantly affect the quality of life. Rehabilitation can also be a painful, long ordeal, with expensive health care costs and treatment that can last a lifetime. If you or a family member has suffered a public transportation accident injury, we urge you to contact an experienced attorney. Such an attorney will carefully evaluate your case and explain the legal options available to you at no charge.
