Many bus, subway and train accidents occur due to human error by a driver, conductor or engineer. They may be distracted by mobile devices, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, disregard safety rules, travel at unsafe speeds or fail to keep a proper lookout. Also, buses, subways and trains can suffer equipment failures. Unsafe conditions can exist at crossings or on subway platforms. Given the immense size and power of buses, subways and trains, even “minor” accidents can result in serious injuries or death.
Transportation, municipal and other government agencies that manage mass transit have ample resources to fight against personal injury claims.. Their priority is to protect their profits over anything else, and they will do their best to fight any claim made against them. Therefore, it’s important to retain legal counsel from a knowledgeable and experienced firm that has the ability to get the job done right.
