What Caused Your Mass Transit Accident?

Common carrier operators, including train, bus, airplanes, and taxi drivers, have heightened responsibilities. The reason is simple: the public relies on such vehicles, and their drivers, to be safe. However, these public transit vehicles can often be involved in serious collisions, crashes, and accidents that result in devastating injuries.

Common causes of mass transit accidents include:

  • Human Error
  • Inadequate Vehicle Maintenance
  • Broken Rails
  • Track Buckles
  • Sudden Stops
  • Improper Lane Change
  • Speeding

When driver negligence, poor maintenance, incorrect dispatching, or another factor contributes to a preventable accident, juries weigh what is called "aggravated liability," a perspective proportionate to the scale of the vehicle. It is not unusual for mass transit accidents to result in settlements that dwarf the kind of damages you might expect from a traditional car accident.
