Finding the Facts in Public Transportation Accidents

Public transportation serves an important and necessary role in moving people to their homes, work places, schools, medical appointments, social and family obligations. When there is a public transportation accident, it is important to understand what happened and why.

At the Girardi | Keese law firm, we have been investigating personal injury accidents for more than 40 years. Our lawyers work hard to assure that victims get the compensation they need and deserve.

We hear the story far too often: We were on the plaintiffs’ steering committee for the MetroLink crash in Los Angeles in 2009, as one example. When something goes wrong, individuals and their families suffer, and we fight passionately for their rights. Call 800-401-4530 to speak with one of our experienced litigators.

Investigation: The First Crucial Step in Personal Injury Claims

Public transportation accidents present legal and investigatory challenges. Was there human error involved? Was there a component failure? What was the mechanical and maintenance history of the bus, train or taxi? Were the train tracks properly maintained? Was evidence was provided by the crash data recorder?

To find out what happened, our personal injury attorneys employ experts to review and reconstruct the accident. In many cases, there is a products liability component to the accident’s cause. In a train accident, for example, tables came loose and forcibly struck and killed passengers. Serious injuries and fatalities require substantial compensation for the victims and their families.

Our law firm’s advice and counsel is sought by other lawyers and by community organizations that know our reputation for defending the rights of injured people. As one example, we were on the plaintiffs’ steering committee for the 2009 MetroLink crash in Los Angeles.
