Public Transportation Accidents and Legal Claims

There are many types of public transit vehicles that can lead to legal remedies and legal claims:

  • Train collisions. Train collisions can be caused by human error, defective equipment, signal problems, track problems, or negligent operators. If negligence played a role in your injuries, is important to consult with a personal injury attorney in order to ensure that you get full compensation. Upon investigation, it is found that many train collisions were completely preventable and unfortunately these types of collisions cause catastrophic injuries that can affect the victims’ lives forever.
  • Bus accidents. Buses are sometimes incorrectly maintained or the equipment that is meant to keep you safe on a bus may be defective. In addition, in a bus accident is important to investigate whether the operator was negligent, distracted, or poorly trained. Many bus accidents in Deerfield Beach and other communities are preventable and this means that you may have a claim if negligence played a role in your injuries.
  • Pedestrian accidents. Sometimes, a bus or other mass transit vehicle will hit a pedestrian because the operator of the vehicle is distracted or otherwise negligent. In these cases, it may be possible to pursue compensation as well.
  • Assault and other incidents. Traffic accidents are not the only ways that Floridians are injured on mass transit. Sometimes, slip and fall accidents occur on these vehicles due to poor maintenance and mechanical failure can also lead to electric shock or burns. In addition, inadequate maintenance on public transportation authority property can lead to assault, muggings, and other dangerous activity. In some cases, it is possible to pursue legal action in these situations as well.
