Public Transportation Injuries
Bus accidents, subway accidents, light rail accidents, police car accidents, fire truck accidents, garbage truck accidents, accidents involving parks and recreation vehicles, department of transportation vehicles or city/county/state/federal government vehicles: any of these can add a challenging touch to getting compensation for your injuries.
Accidents involving public transportation can result in catastrophic injuries, involving many people, organizations of many kinds and complex issues. Victims may be passengers, employees or bystanders. In some cases, you may not even be aware of the public transportation element of your injury.
Reasons to File a Case
If an accident involving public transportation has affected you or someone in your family, whether as a passenger or bystander, it may result in severe or permanently disabling injuries, even death. In addition to medical issues, you may be facing loss of income. Your life and the lives of others in your family may be changed forever.
At the same time, the odds are that you’ll also be facing very large insurance companies, each of whom employ armies of lawyers whose job it is to save their clients money by doing whatever they can to prevent claims from being paid or get them settled for as little as possible.
Although insurance companies should pay claims promptly and those payments should be enough to cover your entire medical costs, lost income and whatever else is needed to make you as whole as possible after your injury, the reality is that these for-profit companies will do whatever they can to make sure that does not happen. If they’ve got an army of lawyers to fight for them, you need your own.
