The increased demand for public transit leads to an increased chance of public transportation accidents involving bicyclists, joggers, pedestrians and the passengers on board the bus or train. Considering how large these vehicles are, the physical trauma sustained in a collision can be serious and life-altering.
Public Transportation Accidents in Metro Atlanta
MARTA is funded by taxpayers and is therefore obligated to maintain all buses, trains and facilities it operates. This means if you slip and fall due to rainwater not being moped up or sustain an injury from using stairs or equipment left in disrepair, you may be entitled to a negligence settlement.
When trails derail and wreck, the insurance provider who represents the rail line will immediately dispatch adjusters and investigators to document the crash site and take every measure to minimize their legal liabilities. In order to receive just compensation, you will most likely need to seek out representation from an experienced accident and injury lawyer.
