  Bus & Taxi Accident Injury Attorney

Even though riding public transportation is a safe and reliable way to travel, accidents do happen. When they do, they can be devastating and one single accident can injure numerous people at the same time. Public transportation accidents can involve any vehicle operating as a mode of public transportation, including:

  • Trains and Subways
  • Buses
  • Taxicabs
  • Airport shuttles
  • Light rail shuttles
  • Cable cars and Streetcars

In general, drivers who operate public transportation vehicles are required to be properly trained and licensed and the public holds them to a high standard of care and safety. Drivers who are often overworked, sleep deprived or who are not properly trained pose an extreme risk to all of their passengers and to those who occupy the roads around them.

Bus and Shuttle Accidents:

If you are injured in an accident with a bus or a shuttle, chances are that the injuries you sustain will be catastrophic and life changing. Motorcyclists often fall victim to bus accidents when they mistakenly ride in the wide blind spot of the bus. As a result, traumatic brain injuries and severe spinal cord injuries can occur and result in a lifetime of permanent disabilities. In 2007 alone, more than 250 Colorado buses were involved in an accident and those accidents resulted in more than 55 serious injuries.

In addition, the large number of airport shuttle buses circling the Denver airport, are a constant presence on Interstate I-70 and have resulted in many accidents to date. Whenever more than 5 people occupy large passenger vans, the likelihood of a rollover increases. When you add extra luggage to an already crowded shuttle van, they can become unstable on roadways, especially during emergency maneuvers and under icy winter conditions. When they are involved in an accident, the chances of a rollover accident is increased and with it the chances of severe injuries and death.

Taxi Accidents:

Taxicabs are often taken as a fast and reliable transportation alternative. Unfortunately, when an accident does occur, there may be many people to blame.

  • Taxi driver
  • Taxicab company
  • other drivers
  • city or county
  • Taxicab manufacturer
  • pedestrians or other persons involved

If you are involved in a taxi accident, the police report alone may not be enough. Your personal injury attorney may need to hire accident experts and obtain witnesses to validate your side of the accident and get you the compensation you deserve.

If you are involved in an accident with a bus, shuttle bus, light rail train or taxicab, don't delay. There are strict statues of limitations involving bus accidents and other public transportation accidents. Contact a personal injury attorney immediately to ensure that you meet all deadlines associated with your accident.
