Los Angeles has a highly developed public transportation system. Many people residing in this part of the world rely every day on MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) buses, DASH buses, trolleys, shuttle buses, and Metro Rail System trains to go about their daily activities. Families look to school buses to keep their children safe going to and from school. Also, private businesses offer casino tour buses regularly from Los Angeles and other cities in Southern California.
While public transportation is generally a safe and economical method of transportation in Los Angeles, mass transit accidents tend to happen often. Having an experienced Los Angeles bus and mass transit attorney by your side is crucial if you want to get full compensation for all the damages and injuries sustained in the accident. Although bus drivers, light rail operators, and commuter train conductors owe a significantly higher degree of care as “common carriers” to ensure the safety of passengers, they don’t always follow the rules and engage in careless or reckless behavior. Other motorists and pedestrians can suffer egregious harm when a bus driver is negligent and causes an accident.
Countless people get injured and die in Los Angeles while using alternative transportation methods. Passengers sustain injuries due to negligence and due to subways and buses not being properly maintained. This is when hiring an experienced attorney comes into play. A Los Angeles bus and mass transit attorney will find out who is responsible for the accident and ensure they pay for your damages. Bringing a personal injury claim in these scenarios can be a complex process that may take months or years. Evidence of the accident as well as records of your injuries need to be provided so you can be rightfully compensated.
