Coral Gables Public Transportation Accident

If you have been in a car accident in Coral Gables or your community, you often have a decent grasp of your rights. You understand that you need to exchange contact information with the other driver and you know that you can report the accident to your insurance company in order to file a claim. But what happens when you have been in a public transportation collision or in a collision with a public transportation vehicle? Who is responsible for these types of crashes? Are you even entitled to compensation in these situations?

If you have been hurt in an accident involving a train, public bus, or other public transit vehicle, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney and to get legal advice before you proceed. In these cases, the attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have seen all too often situations in which injured victims are blamed by the public transport company or by a municipality for causing the accident or are otherwise denied benefits that they could use to pay for medical expenses, car repairs, and other costs. The attorneys of Flaxman Law Group would like to invite you to contact the full-service law firm at any time to arrange for a free, no obligation consultation. Our attorneys can discuss your legal options with you.

Types of Public Transportation Crashes in Coral Gables

Public transportation collisions can involve any type of public transportation vehicles, including:

  • Streetcars
  • Public buses
  • Trains
  • Shuttles
  • Subways

These accidents are separate from the types of private operator traffic collisions that may involve limos, taxis, and other vehicles owned by private companies. The challenge with public transportation cases is that they often involve the government entities that own the railways or the city buses. It can be very intimidating to try to get fair compensation from a government entity, which is why many people turn to personal injury attorneys in Coral Gables or their communities order to build a strong case and in order to aggressively pursue justice in their situation.

You Have Rights After Your Injury

There are challenges if you have been injured on board a public transit vehicle, but you do have rights. If the transit company or bus operator failed to take reasonable precautions to protect patrons or if negligence played a role in your injuries, you may qualify for compensation. If you are not sure whether you have a claim, contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to find out whether you have a case.
