Bay Area Public Transportation Accidents
Bay Area public transportation accidents don’t always involve private automobiles and SUVs. Sometimes the drivers of buses, trains, limousines, and taxis are responsible for serious injury light rail accidents or even fatal school bus accidents. If you or someone in your family has been injured in a collision involving a transit or hired passenger vehicle of any kind, contact Bay Area public transportation accident attorney Todd Emanuel.
At the EMANUEL LAW GROUP, we can represent you in any public transit personal injury case involving such Bay Area carriers as BART, Caltrans, Caltrain, Golden Gate Transit, AC Transit, or SamTrans. Because bus and commuter rail operators are generally publicly owned and operated in the Bay Area, special notice of claim provisions and shorter deadlines for filing suit might apply to your claim. Our experience in analyzing all aspects of a personal injury claim and in dealing with municipal and metropolitan defendants can give you a critical advantage in recovering compensation for injuries resulting from bus or train accidents.
We can also provide thorough and effective representation in motor vehicle injury accidents caused by private operators of airport shuttle services, taxi drivers and cab companies, tour buses, school buses, and limo services. San Francisco taxi driver accident attorney Todd Emanuel can unravel the complicated threads of corporate structure, local licensing requirements, regulatory requirements, and employment relationships to make sure that all of the parties who should be sued are actually called to account for your injuries.
Under certain circumstances, a public transit authority can also be held liable for injuries sustained in an assault or sexual attack on a bus or passenger vehicle, at a bus stop or train station, or in any other place where the transit company was responsible for providing a reasonably secure area for its passengers.
