Mass Transit Accidents
Although using mass transit has numerous economic and environmental advantages, it is possible to sustain a serious injury if there is an accident. Mass transit accidents commonly cause catastrophic injuries for passengers because many of these vehicles lack standard safety equipment. If you or a loved one has been hurt in an accident involving a plane, cruise ship, bus, or train, please contact Impact Law to find an attorney in your area.
Although air travel is one of the safest forms of mass transit, accidents do occur. Pilot error, mechanical dysfunction, and mistakes by ground control are just a few causes of airplane accidents. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, a plane accident can have overwhelming effects, including catastrophic injury and wrongful death. Victims and/or their families may be eligible for compensation for their injuries and/or loss.
Going on a cruise can be one of the most exciting, relaxing activities. However, when a cruise ship or yacht has unsanitary or unsafe premises, a lack of security, faulty equipment, poorly trained staff, or another cause, passengers face an increased risk of illness and personal injury. An experienced maritime law attorney may be able to help you.
Like an auto accident, a bus accident can happen in the blink of an eye, due to traffic conditions, machinery malfunction, and other causes. Since bus lines and school bus drivers are required to exercise the highest level of care to assure the safety of passengers, passengers who are injured in a bus accident are generally entitled to compensation for their injuries.
Although train accidents are rare, they do occur occasionally because of derailment, equipment malfunction, and other causes. Whatever the cause of the train accident, the results can be devastating. Victims may suffer loss of property, fractures, brain injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis, and even wrongful death. Persons harmed in a train accident can pursue damages for their injuries.
