Queens Bus & Train Accident Lawyer
Millions of people every day use mass transit transportation as their primary source of transportation in New York City and in the greatertri-state area. There are many benefits to using public transportation. But what one does not expect is for the bus or train to be involved in an accident. Buses share the road with other drivers and collisions are always a possibility. Trains can injure passengers with derailment, excessive speed, and sudden movements. If you or a loved one have been involved in a bus or train accident, contact us immediately.
Bus accidents are a common occurrence in New York City. Just like any other vehicle on the road, buses are just as susceptible to collisions. Bus passengers can be hurt quite easily as many do not come with seat belts, and commuters often have to stand while riding due to a lack of open seating. Thus, anything from sudden movements to collisions can seriously injure passengers or even lead to fatalities.
Train accidents happen less frequently than bus accidents, yet they are susceptible to the same variables that buses encounter on the roadways. Like buses, most trains are not equipped with seat belts, and passengers are often standing as a result of no open seating. Causes of train injuries include excessive speed, sudden jerks and movements, irresponsible driving, collisions, and derailment. The rarity of train crashes and derailment does not take away from the catastrophe it leaves behind.
Buses and trains are public carriers. They are entrusted with the safety of their commuters and hence held to a high standard of care and safety. The buses and trains (and their tracks) must be properly maintained and operated safely by professionally trained operators.
