What You Need To Know

For many people in Southern California, public transportation is the chief means of getting around. We’d all like to think that our subways and buses are reliable. However, mass transit accidents happen all the time, causing innocent riders to suffer serious injuries.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a subway, bus, or other mass transit accident, it’s important to take steps to protect your rights. At the McElfish Law Firm, we understand that mass transit accidents can have serious ramifications, and we will fight to get you the compensation that you deserve.

Have You Been Injured in a Mass Transit Accident?

Mass transit accidents can occur in any number of circumstances. You could be hurt while riding on a bus or subway that is involved in an accident, due to operator error, equipment malfunction, or any other reason. Alternatively, you could sustain injuries as the driver or passenger of a vehicle that collides with a bus.

Regardless of the type of accident involved, most people who are hurt in subway, bus, or other mass transit accidents sustain their injuries through no fault of their own. If the accident was caused by negligence or faulty equipment, you may be entitled to bring a personal injury lawsuit to recovery for your injuries.

It’s important that you consult an attorney and bring your claims as soon as possible. Under California law, injury claims against public transportation agencies must be brought within six months of the injury, or your right to recover will be lost.

Mass transit agencies have legal obligations to ensure that their vehicles and equipment are properly maintained. Unfortunately, they don’t always do so. Every year, passengers sustain injuries when improper maintenance on subways and buses leads to accidents. In such cases, if you can show that an improperly or negligently maintained vehicle caused your injuries, the transit agency can be required to pay for your damages.

Human error can also play a big role in mass transit accidents. Driver negligence, substance abuse, and other factors that contribute to an accident can potentially place liability on the transit agency, which is responsible for investigating its employees’ records and removing unfit drivers.

Bringing a personal injury claim against a government transit agency can be a difficult and drawn-out process. While many cases ultimately settle, you should be prepared to see your case through trial, which could take months or even years. In that time, you’ll be required to provide any evidence you have about the circumstances of the accident, as well as records of any injuries and expenses you’ve sustained as a result. This includes medical records, bills, and proof of lost wages, among other things.
