Pembroke Pines Public Transportation Accident
Public transportation accidents in Pembroke Pines and other Florida communities are often very difficult for the victims involved. Of course, when we step onto a bus or train we expect that the transit authorities have done everything reasonably possible to keep us safe. Unfortunately, when Florida residents are injured on board buses, trains, and other mass transit vehicles they sometimes find that they have a hard time getting compensation for their injuries.
The reality is that public transportation systems do have immunities from some types of liability. This can make getting fair compensation more challenging, but certainly not impossible. The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have handled mass transportation and traffic accident cases before and understand how to build strong cases that improve clients’ chances of getting fair compensation.

In many cases, public transportation accidents occur because of operator distraction or under-training or due to unfamiliarity with an area. In some cases, these accidents are caused by unsafe driving conditions or due to mechanical failure. Brake failure as well as tire issues can be a problem on buses, for example. If it is discovered that the company who owns the bus or train has been negligent in maintaining the bus or train or has been negligent in hiring safe operators for their mass transit vehicles, there may be liable parties in your case and you may have a legal claim that allows you to seek compensation for your injuries.
The reality is that mass transit agencies and other liable parties are protected by powerful insurance companies as well as teams of attorneys. You, as someone who has been injured, deserve at least the same. Speaking with a personal injury attorney in Pembroke Pines or your community ensures that you have someone offering you legal advice about your situation and ensures that you have someone fighting for your rights.Are You Protected After a Serious Injury or Collision?
Public transportation agencies often have their own investigators as well as teams of attorneys. For this reason, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney so that they can act quickly on your behalf and conduct their own investigation to get information about any possible liability on the part of the public transportation agency and any other parties. An attorney can investigate by:
- Working with private investigators
- Taking witness statements
- Interviewing employees
- Running background checks on public transportation agencies and employees to check for previous safety violations
