Who is Responsible for My Public Transportation Accident?
Many of us rely on public transportation every day. We use it to get to work and around our cities and towns. Trains, buses, shuttles — all of these get us where we need to go and we trust that the operators, drivers, and infrastructures are safe. However, sometimes accidents and injuries occur. If you are a victim of one of these accidents, it’s in your best interest to contact a public transportation accident law firm to protect your rights immediately.
The lawyers at Nagle & Associates, P.A. serving Greensboro, North Carolina are experienced in public transportation accidents and personal injury cases. They are prepared to take your case and work through all the red tape so you can focus on your recovery.
Who Should Take Responsibility for My Accident?
Perhaps you were a passenger on public transportation, a pedestrian or bicyclist struck by a public vehicle, or even in your own vehicle and hit by a public transportation vehicle. No matter what the circumstances, if the accident was due to someone else’s negligence, you likely deserve compensation under the law.
Public transportation operates under state laws that ensure passenger safety, as well as safety to those around the vehicles. Therefore, public transit safety is typically the responsibility of the government and they can be held liable for any violations and accidents. Operator error or negligence is also a factor in many accidents, and they too can be held responsible. Additionally, many public transportation systems are privately funded,and your attorney will find out the correct company or municipality to deal with.
These companies are typically large with lots of legal firepower behind them and will attempt to bully you into settling your claim for a low amount. Nagle & Associates will never accept a low settlement for their clients and work aggressively to get you the maximum compensation possible. You deserve recovery for your damages — whether they are financial, physical, or emotional.
