We Can File Several Types of Accident Claims.
Not all mass transit accidents are the same, and we will not file the same type of claim in every case. Once we have a clear understanding of the circumstances of your accident, we can determine which type of claim applies to your accident.
A negligence claim asserts that another party had a duty of care to you and did not uphold that duty, resulting in your injuries. For instance, if a bus driver operated the vehicle carelessly in traffic and caused a crash in which you suffered injuries, they may have been negligent. Similarly, a train conductor who fails to see an upcoming hazard might also be liable for injuries that arise from the resulting crash.
By gathering evidence, we can make a strong case that such a person—or their employer— is liable for your injuries due to negligence.
In a product liability claim, we seek to prove that a defective product caused your injuries. In doing so, we can hold the manufacturer or the entity responsible for maintaining the product liable for damages. Typically in a product liability case, we do not have to prove that negligence was a factor. As long as you did not materially alter the product before your injury occurred and you were using it for its intended purpose, any flaw or defect that causes injury can leave the manufacturer open to a product liability claim.
Here are a few situations in which product liability might apply to a mass transit accident:
- A bus blew a defective tire, resulting in a rollover crash;
- Defective tracks caused a train to derail; or
- The brakes on another vehicle malfunctioned, causing it to run a red light and collide with a mass transit vehicle.
If you lost a loved one due to a mass transit accident, we can pursue a wrongful death claim against the responsible party or parties.
Our Attorneys Pursue Several Forms of Compensation.
As a mass transit accident victim, you might be eligible to receive compensation for some or all of the following losses:
- Medical costs;
- Lost wages;
- Reduced earning capacity;
- Pain and suffering;
- Loss of consortium; and
- Emotional anguish.
