What Makes Public Transit Accidents Different From Other Types of Accidents?

Public transit is a popular mode of transportation in Alberta, with countless people relying on buses and trains daily for commuting. However, public transit accidents present unique challenges in personal injury law. Here’s why:

Involvement of Larger Vehicles
Public transit vehicles like buses and trains are much bigger than regular cars, which can lead to more severe injuries. The sheer size and weight of these vehicles can cause significant damage upon impact, resulting in more extensive injuries for victims.

Higher Number of Passengers
Public transit accidents often involve many passengers, increasing the potential for injuries. With more people on board, there is an increased risk of passengers being thrown around or colliding with each other during an accident.

Many Other Causes
These accidents can also happen due to driver negligence, mechanical failures, poor maintenance or hazardous road conditions. Such complexities require a thorough investigation to identify all responsible parties and determine liability accurately.

Despite these challenges, legal representation from our specialist public transit accident lawyers at BILAB significantly increases your chances of obtaining a fair settlement for your public transit accident case. Our expert lawyers understand all the intricacies of these types of accidents and navigate the complex legal landscape for you, which is a far better strategy than attempting to defend your case on your own. We fight to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve while taking into account all the unique factors involved in your public transit accident.

To win an injury lawsuit against a public transit authority or driver, you must prove they were negligent – and that this negligence led directly to your injuries. The process typically involves establishing four key elements:

Duty: You must demonstrate that the defendant (the driver or transit authority) owed you a duty of care.

Breach: You need to show that the defendant breached this duty through some act of negligence.

Causation: It must be evident that this breach of duty caused your injuries.

Damage: You should provide proof of your injuries and other damages.

This answer may surprise you. To begin, identifying the liable party in a public transit accident in Alberta is crucial for your claim. But a common misconception is that operators (such as bus or train drivers) are always at fault. While it's true that operator negligence such as distracted driving or violating traffic laws can lead to accidents, they are not always solely responsible. For example, if a malfunctioning signal led to the collision, the company maintaining the signals could be liable. The public transit company itself may also bear responsibility. This could be the case if they failed to maintain vehicles properly, or didn't provide adequate training for their operators. In some cases, another motorist could be at fault. If a car cuts off a bus causing it to swerve and crash, the driver of that car may be held responsible. Government entities may also be implicated. Road design flaws or lack of proper signage can also contribute to an accident. BILAB Law, with its vast experience handling public transit accident injury cases in Alberta, is highly skilled at identifying all possible liable parties and building the most robust cases against them.
