According to the American Public Transportation Association, people ride on mass transit vehicles for 10 billion trips a year. That number accounts for all forms of transit, including:

  • Buses
  • Taxi cabs
  • Light rail
  • Trolleys
  • Subways
  • Commuter trains
  • Streetcars
  • Cable car services
  • Ferries
  • Water taxis
  • Monorails and tramways
  • Paratransit services for senior citizens and people with disabilities

So when a bus/mass transit accident occurs due to the negligence of a public transit employee, it is inexcusable, and at Fieger Law, we won’t accept it. Geoffrey Fieger and his team have won millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of clients injured in bus/mass transit accidents.
