Miami Lakes Public Transportation Accident

In most ways, public transportation is an excellent choice. It is environmentally friendly, has a lower risk of collisions, and reduces traffic congestion on roads. However, while it is an economical choice and a good choice in most cases, public transportation accidents can and do occur and these can be catastrophic, leading to severe and even permanent injury. Although public transportation collisions are far less common than car accidents in Miami Lakes and Florida, if they happen to you, you and your passengers could sustain severe injury.

If you have sustained a severe injury, Flaxman Law Group attorneys are available to inform you of your legal options and your rights. We can aggressively pursue fair and full compensation for your injuries and we can help you deal with the insurance carriers involved.

When are Mass Transit Legal Claims Possible?

Mass transit accidents often lead to injuries. One issue is that buses, trains, and other public transportation vehicles tend to be much larger than passenger cars and therefore exert more force in a collision. In addition, most trains, buses, and other public transportation vehicles do not involve seatbelts and other safety devices. In the event of an accident, you may be thrown about the vehicle, crashing into other passengers or into their suitcases and other personal property. If you have been injured while using public transportation, you may have a claim if your injury was caused by negligence or recklessness.

Mass transit legal claims in Miami Lakes and Florida can occur after many types of accidents and incidents, including:

  • Charter bus accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Train accidents
  • Shuttle accidents
  • Subway accidents
  • Taxi accidents
  • Violence on mass transit authority property
  • Injuries resulting from incidents onboard public transportation vehicles

In general, if you have been injured due to negligence, you may have a claim. If you are not certain whether you have a claim, contact a personal injury attorney who can review your case with you. An experienced personal injury attorney in Miami Lakes or Florida can quickly tell you whether you have a claim and can start to immediately protect your rights and pursue compensation on your behalf.
