Public transportation litigation can be complex and confusing. When you are injured, you need to focus on recuperating. Let our caring team handle pursuing the legal remedies for your injuries resulting from:
- Railroad accidents. A train can cause an accident due to defective equipment, human error or track and light signal problems.
- Bus accidents. If you are injured on a bus, we investigate whether the driver was negligent, the equipment was defective or the bus was improperly maintained.
- Airplane accidents. An aircraft that crashes from the sky almost always leads to death or very serious injuries for the people on board. Bad decisions by pilots and crew members can cause accidents, but so can instructions to fly in unsuitable weather, mistakes by controllers on the ground, defective parts and bad maintenance.
