Types of Injuries Sustained on Mass Transit

There are many ways to sustain a serious injury when using public transportation systems:

  • Falling off a platform
  • Electric shock or burns due to defective equipment
  • Slipping on bus or station stairs
  • Injuries sustained in a traffic accident involving mass transit vehicles
  • Tripping and falling over uneven or slippery floors on a vehicle or bus vestibule
  • Falls due to sudden, jerking stops
  • Injuries caused by a pedestrian accident when entering or exiting a vehicle
  • Injuries due to a closing bus or train door
  • Assaults and battery in bus vestibules or on platforms

In many cases, these incidents and injuries are preventable and may be caused by negligence. If you have been injured and your injuries were caused by someone else’s recklessness, you may have a legal claim. Compensation from your claim can help you pay for the many expenses related to your injury, which could include hospital and medical bills, lost income, and more.

However, keep in mind that mass transportation agencies may enjoy immunities from some types of liability. If you have a claim, you will need to work with a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney in Hallandale Beach or your community in order to win your case. There may be technical and legal obstacles in your case due to the power of the plaintiffs, but an experienced attorney can give you a good chance at compensation with thorough preparation of your case.

Do I Have a Case after a Public Transportation Accident?

Some passengers are injured due to assault while using public transit because of poor lighting or negligent security. In some cases, passengers are injured in bus, train, or taxi collisions. In other cases, pedestrians are hit by public transportation vehicles. In all of these cases, personal injury claims may be possible if the injuries were caused by negligence and if the injuries are serious.
