More Complicated Than Automobile Accidents
Public transit accidents can be more complicated than other motor vehicle accidents when it comes to determining fault. The operator as well as the municipality may bear responsibility depending on the individual situation. If there was negligence on the part of the operator, a claim can be made against the responsible operator. Additionally, pedestrians and the occupants of other vehicles can suffer serious injury in collisions with these larger vehicles.
Like any other motor vehicle accident, the victim of a public transit accident can suffer grave injuries. Add the fact that these are large vehicles with often numerous occupants. Occupants of buses and trains can sustain injuries during an accident due to the lack of seat belts. The most common injuries sustained after a bus accident are bruises, cuts, head injuries, spinal injuries, and fractures.
