Miami Springs Public Transportation Accident
As more people rely on public transportation, accident-related injuries on trains, buses, and other mass transit vehicles can increase.

“Public transportation accidents” tends to be an umbrella term that can refer to a number of incidents and collisions that lead to injury. Accidents involving mass transit can include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Traffic collisions
- Robbery, sexual assault, or other crimes on board a public transit vehicle
- Burns or electric shock caused by mechanical failure or poor maintenance
If you have been injured as a rider on a bus, train, or other type of mass transit, it is important to get legal advice. You may have a legal claim. If a slip and fall accident has caused injury to you, for example, the question to ask is whether the public transit authority did all they could in order to keep the vehicles safe and reasonably clean for passengers. If a traffic collision has caused your injuries, you may be able to seek compensation through the mass transit carrier’s insurance policy. If you have been injured due to a criminal act on board a mass transit vehicle or property, then your personal injury attorney may question whether the mass transit authority did everything possible in order to prevent the crime. For example, if there was a rash of crimes on board mass transit buses or trains, did the transit authority take appropriate action? If the vehicle was poorly maintained and this led to burns, electric shock, or collisions, did the transit authority take the appropriate steps to prevent serious injury or to maintain their fleets correctly? A personal injury attorney in Miami Springs or your community can help find the answers to all these questions and can help you pursue a claim for full and fair compensation if you qualify.
