Are you the Victim of an Accident Involving a Train or Bus?
The drivers of subways, trains, buses and other public transportation vehicles are required to be highly trained and particularly careful to protect the safety of others, particularly their own passengers. When they fail to meet this duty, they can be held accountable.
At the law firm of Okun, Oddo & Babat in Midtown Manhattan, our experienced personal injury attorneys represent public transportation passengers and others injured by mass transit vehicles.
Representing Passengers Injured by Negligent Drivers
Public transportation authorities and their drivers owe a greater duty of care toward their passengers. In legal terms, they are known as common carriers. In New York, this category includes the light rail system and public buses as well as private bus companies.
If you’ve been injured in a light rail accident or other public transportation accident, we may be able to help you recover compensation from the responsible organization.
Many public transportation accidents occur when someone is entering or exiting a vehicle and the driver pulls away too quickly. Motor vehicle accidents involving public transit vehicles can also cause catastrophic injuries and even fatalities.
Seeking Compensation for People Injured in Public Transit Collisions
Our firm also represents people who have been struck by subway, rail road trains, buses and other mass transit vehicles while riding in other vehicles or walking. Trains and buses are heavy vehicles that can cause serious accidents, so their drivers need to be particularly careful.
