Coral Springs Public Transportation Accident

Florida residents who use mass transit such as buses, trains, and other systems of transportation of course expect to be safe when using public transport. After all, statistics show that car accidents in Coral Springs and Florida are far more likely when compared with bus accidents and other public transit vehicle collisions. Despite this, public transit accidents do occur and when they do they can result in serious injuries and even fatalities.

If you have been hurt in a taxi, train, or bus collision in Florida, you may have a claim against the carrier or municipality. You may be able to seek compensation for the hardships and expenses you encounter because of the accident. To find out more, you can always reach Flaxman Law Group at 866-352-9626 or through our law firm website to arrange a free, no –obligation consultation.

Types of Injuries and Accidents That Can Affect Passengers in Mass Transit Systems

There are many types of public transit accidents in Coral Springs and Florida. Injuries can involve:

  • Slipping on station or bus stairs
  • Falling off of a public transit platform
  • Slipping on a slippery bus or train floor
  • Injuries due to closing bus doors or train doors
  • Physical assault, sexual assaults, or other crimes committed on platforms, in bus shelters, or on mass transit vehicles
  • Burns or electric shocks caused by faulty equipment or devices on buses or trains
  • Falls caused by jerking motions or sudden stops of a train or bus

Essentially, any time that you are injured on board of the mass transit vehicle or on any property owned by a mass transit authority, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in order to get legal advice about your situation. If the mass transit authority or another liable party were negligent in providing you with safe transportation or a safe place to access transportation, you may have a legal claim that allows you to seek compensation.

You may be able to seek compensations for:

  • Medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages and lost income opportunities
