Municipal Transit Accidents
If you get hurt while traveling on public transportation or by a public transportation vehicle such as a bus, train, or subway, you may be entitled to make a claim against the public transportation operator. Many states stipulate that these “common carriers” owe their passengers a higher degree of care to provide safe means and methods of transportation than is expected by the average person. The injured person must still prove, however, that the public transportation operator was negligent in order to win the case.
