Liability in Public Transit Accidents
While public transportation injuries occur, it is not very common. Injuries do happen to passengers are on public transportation. When an accident occurs, the most common accidents include passengers or pedestrians or to other passengers inside a vehicle. At Braff Law , we know that while the individuals maybe at fault, they will suffer pain from the injuries which can alter their entire life. There is a tort law to help protect the individuals who received injuries due to someone acting in a negligent manner. While it may sound simple, the accident is not always a simple accident; in many cases, it is very complex.
An example of the complexity is if you were injured and you file a claim against the bus driver, there is also a chance that you filed against the municipality because it is public transportation that was involved in the accident. With good representation, you can prove that the accident is due to negligence.
