Massachusetts Public Transportation Accidents
Fighting for Maximum Compensation for Public Transportation Accident Victims
Massachusetts and federal public transportation law provides clear rights to users of mass transit. These laws protect train, bus, taxicab, limousine passengers and even people riding elevators and escalators. In the event of a mass transit accident, the accident victim has the right to take action against the transportation provider.
The most common causes of these mass transit accidents include:
- Mechanical failures
- Driver fatigue
- Inadequate training
- Driver distraction
- Driving at an unsafe speed for the conditions
Public transportation agencies and companies have their own investigators and attorneys to handle bus accidents, train accidents, taxicab accidents and other mass transit accidents. Their sole purpose in life is to reduce or eliminate their own responsibility for your damages. That is why you need the public transportation law team at Percy Law Group, PC, on your side.
