While some people spend their time driving a motor vehicle, others rely on public transportation. Just the same as any type of vehicle, there is a chance you could be involved in an accident.
Public train and bus accidents, for instance, are not common, but these do happen from time to time. If you rely on this type of transportation, you hope that the driver is safe at all times and that the vehicle is in good working condition.
When it comes to personal injury law, there is nothing simple about a public transportation accident. These types of accidents can include but are not limited to:
— Tour bus and school bus
— Light rail trains
— Airport shuttles
— Railroad crossings
Just because you suffer injuries in a public transportation accident does not mean you are in a position to file a lawsuit. However, if there was any type of negligence involved, you may be in position to recover compensation for your injuries and other damages.
There are many benefits of public transportation, including the fact that you don’t have to operate a vehicle on your own. Unfortunately, the risk of being involved in an accident remains.
