California Public Transportation Accidents Lawyer
There are plenty of public transportation options for us to choose from each day. From transit buses and cabs to planes and trains. Complicating matters is how each is regulated. If they are regulated by the government, they are held to a different standard than if they are privately owned.
The California public transportation accident lawyers at The May Firm are the leading injury attorneys handling public transportation accident injury claims.
Unfortunately, accidents happen and when they happen, they can be devastating for everyone involved. You don’t even have to be in the vehicle that causes the accident … just affected by it (i.e. run over by a bus). Even so, the accident should not leave you without any type of recourse. For most, this means filing a public transportation accident lawsuit.

Suing The Government
It’s already hard enough to get your money from Uncle Sam when it’s time to pay taxes, so you shouldn’t expect it to be any easier when it comes to suing or making a legal claim against he federal or state government for negligence. Not surprisingly, the government denies virtually 100% of all accident injury lawyers.
Thereby forcing claimants to file suit against most all California accident injury claimants. Their part or through a contractor that they hired to provide the public transportation services.
The government has special provisions in place to protect itself; provisions such as proper notice before filing a complaint and/or lawsuit against the agency for personal injury. This gives the government agency time to settle the issue with you directly. After that, then you can file a lawsuit but only within a certain time frame. Sound complicated yet?
Suing A Private Entity
There are different laws and statutes that a private entity must follow. In the event they fail to do so, you have legal right to sue them. While they do not have the same protections that the government entities have, they do have other levels of protection for dealing with potentially wrongful lawsuits.
Ultimately, you have to know what you are dealing with. If you don’t, you could get in deep over your head with no way to get what you need. In California, you have rights when whenever a public transportation carrier accident occurs.
If you were injured while using a public transportation provider, then you may have the legal right to sue for any damages that you may have incurred including compensation for all medical costs and even future costs.
