Those of us who rely on public transportation and taxicabs to get us from one place to another assume that the bus or taxi will carry us safely to our destinations, but bus accidents and taxicab accidents happen with surprising regularity.
If you are injured in a bus accident or while riding in a taxi, your legal right to receive financial compensation is similar to your right to do so after other types of accidents.
After a taxicab or bus accident contact us to discuss your legal rights, our law office has experience handling bus accident cases as well as accident cases involving taxicabs.
Common types of bus accidents include:
- Sudden stops, causing falls and broken bones
- Slips on spilled substances that the driver failed to clean
- Quick acceleration before passengers are able to take their seats or hold a support bar
