Mass transit accidents are especially devastating because of the size, weight, speed, and power of vehicles involved. To make matters worse, mass transit systems are often overcrowded, with passengers practically piled on top of one another as trains and buses hurtle through town at high speeds.
If you suffered injuries in a mass transit accident, you have rights. A mass transit lawyer in Langhorne can defend them. It is normal to feel scared and uncertain after a crash with injuries, but you should not have to face the days and weeks to come alone. The lawyers at Cordisco & Saile LLC want to be with you every step of the way, helping you get the full compensation you deserve so you can put your life back together.
Our Mass Transit Lawyers Help You Pursue the Compensation You Deserve.
The laws governing mass transit accidents are complex. That means you need an attorney who focuses on mass transit and knows how to navigate the legal system and win your claim.
A typical mass transit claim deals with several types of law, including negligence, product liability, and perhaps even wrongful death. With our focus on mass transit, Cordisco & Saile LLC can pursue the right type of claim to get you the fairest and most robust settlement possible.
It starts with a free consultation. You can sit down with us, ask any questions or bring up any concerns, and we can go over the details of your accident. Once we begin working for you, we start with a full investigation of the accident. We will identify all responsible parties and start the process of gathering the proof we need for a successful claim.
Throughout this whole process, we do not get paid until you do. We charge only for results.
Mass Transit Accidents Are Complex. We File the Right Claim to Get You Paid.
We have a few options when it comes to claims we can file for your mass transit injury. Which we choose depends on a few factors, most notably the circumstances that surround your accident. For instance, was it the result of an errant conductor, a defect in the tracks, or the actions of a third party?
With a negligence claim, we are alleging that some party had a duty of care to you and shirked that duty.
An example might be an at-fault bus driver that makes a careless maneuver behind the wheel, causing the vehicle to wreck and causing several passengers—including you—to suffer injuries. Because the driver has a duty of care to the passengers under their charge, any careless behavior might qualify as a breach of duty.
Our team would gather evidence of the driver’s carelessness and use it to pursue a negligence claim against the driver or their employer.
Product Liability Claims
Product liability claims charge that a defect in a product caused or contributed to your injury.
Defective products can cause mass transit accidents in a number of ways. For example:
- A defective tire on a bus may fail, causing the vehicle to crash;
- Train tracks can become uneven, causing a train accident; or
- A traffic light may malfunction, leading to acrash at the intersection.
Product liability cases are unique in that we do not have to prove any sort of negligence on the part of the manufacturer. Even if the manufacturing company did nothing wrong in creating the product and taking it to market, we can win a claim against the business as long as we satisfy two conditions:
- You were using the product for its intended purpose; and
- You did not materially alter the product from its original form.
Wrongful Death Claims
A wrongful death claim is what we pursue in a worst-case scenario—your loved one died in a mass transit accident.
