Representing Victims of Mass Transit Accidents
You are more likely to be injured in your own car than in a bus, train, shuttle or other form of mass transit. When accidents do occur on public transportation, however, they are often catastrophic, involving serious injuries and fatalities.
If you or a member of your family was seriously injured or killed in a mass transit accident, it is important to discuss your case with a lawyer who understands these cases and has a track record of success.

Mass transit accidents are legally different from other vehicle accidents for a number of reasons. First, in most cases, the liable party is a governmental entity. Whenever the defendant is the government, it is important that your attorney understand the nuances of governmental liability, including the strict deadlines and exemptions that apply.
Our law firm has prevailed in a wide range of governmental liability cases, including those involving public transportation.
The Duties of Common Carriers
Second, mass transit accidents involve common carriers, who have a higher duty of care to their passengers than does the owner of a private vehicle. Our law firm understands this standard, and knows how to demonstrate to a jury that the carrier failed to meet it.
