Southfield Bus Accident Attorneys
Representing Mass Transit Accident Victims Nationwide
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:
- Taxi cabs
- Light rail
- Commuter trains
- Cable cars
- Van pool services
- Paratransit services for senior citizens and people with disabilities
- Ferries and water taxis
- Monorails and tramways
Under the law, these forms of public mass transportation are considered “common carriers,” and as such, their operators are held to a higher standard of care than other drivers. That means they are accountable for your safety and well-being.
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.
We’re not afraid to fight private or government entities, and you shouldn’t be either—not when we’re working on your case.
