Serious Injuries In Mass Transportation Accidents And Incidents

There are many ways that you can sustain a serious injury while using public transportation. For example, you may get caught up in doors of the train or bus, leading to fractures and other injuries. You may be assaulted by another passenger or by someone on a platform or bus shelter. You may sustain head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and other serious injuries if the bus or train collides with a stationary object or another vehicle.

In all of these cases, it is important to keep in mind that serious injuries and accidents can be very expensive. You may have to pay for:

  • Emergency medical treatment and a hospital stay
  • Surgery
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Visits with specialists
  • Medical treatments
  • Physical therapy, occupational therapy, counseling, and other services
  • At-home care
  • Medication
  • Medical devices
  • Replacing lost income
  • Any property that was damaged or stolen in the incident

The reality is that a serious public transportation accident can end up costing tens of thousands of dollars or even more. If you have sustained a permanent, serious injury such as a spinal cord injury or head trauma you may need around-the-clock care for the rest of your life. The medical costs, care costs, and lost income may total more than a million dollars in this case.

If you're in a car accident in Tamarac or another Florida city, you can expect that the insurance company will pay for at least part of your costs. But how are you covered if you are in a mass transit accident? The reality is that buses and trains are covered by insurance carriers, but it often requires working with a personal injury attorney to make sure that you get fair compensation for your injuries.
