Mass transit is an economical, environmentally-friendly and relatively safe way to get around Harrisburg and Pennsylvania. Taking the bus or train is considered safer than driving a car since cars have a much higher accident rate than public transit. Despite this, when public transit injury occurs, the results can be devastating because of the larger number of people and the larger size of the vehicles involved.
If you have been injured in a bus accident or train accident, contact the Harrisburg law offices of McCarthy Weisberg Cummings, P.C. to speak with a personal injury lawyer – free consultations available.
Bus accidents and injuries are often quite complex. In the event of a collision involving a mass transit bus, it’s likely there will be multiple people injured and, therefore, multiple claims. The company operating the bus is either a municipality or a larger business with at least $5 million in insurance coverage. Determining how this coverage will be distributed among those who have been injured in an accident is often complicated. Working with a public transit injury lawyer can help ensure your case is heard and you get the best chance possible at your fair share of the compensation.
School Bus Accidents
School bus accidents can be especially devastating because the victims are young children. School bus accidents can be caused by negligent car drivers, human error, manufacturer defects and other factors. When school bus accidents affect children’s lives, a thorough investigation is needed to get to the bottom of what caused the accident.
In addition, devastated families deserve to not only get answers, but they also deserve the compensation that can help them provide the best care possible for their child. A school bus accident can affect a child’s life permanently if catastrophic injury results. If your child has been injured, contact the compassionate school bus injury lawyers at McCarthy Weisberg Cummings, P.C. for a free consultation.
Because of the high speeds involved, train accidents can be especially devastating. A large number of people on a train can also mean very high rates of injuries. While not all train injuries are caused by the derailments that make the news, all injuries have the potential to change a commuter’s life. There are tens of thousands of train accidents across the country each year, and if you have been injured in one of them, you can contact an accident lawyer at McCarthy Weisberg Cummings, P.C. to discuss your injuries and any legal recourse you may have.
