When you ride on a bus, train or taxi, you are putting your health and safety in the hands of another party. You expect the driver to be professional and the safety equipment to be in good working order. Unfortunately, any type of negligence can take a devastating toll.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving public transportation, we offer a free lawyer consultation to explain your options.
Who Is Liable For My Public Transportation Accident Injury?
There may be more than one party who is responsible for your injury in a mass transportation accident. Our lawyers handle cases involving:
- Distracted driving by the operator
- Another driver who fails to yield the right of way
- Negligent maintenance
- Defective equipment
- Assault by another passenger
Common carriers such as buses and trains carry a higher duty of care to their passengers than private vehicles. Our lawyers will use experts to conduct a full investigation to determine why the accident happened and identify all liable parties.
We have the ability to take on large, public entities, including the Metrolink Orange County Line and the Orange County Transportation Authority. We also file personal injury lawsuits against smaller companies that operate party buses, taxis and limos.
