Florida Public Transportation Accidents

Hundreds of people are seriously injured every year either by or on public transportation, also known as "common carriers." Common carriers are companies or systems that carry passengers as part of a business operation open to the public. An Experienced Florida Personal Injury Lawyer in this field will advance the costs and expenses necessary to successfully litigate these cases.

Common carriers are required by law to use the highest degree of care and vigilance to ensure the safety of passengers — and the public. This is a much higher duty than that required of a normal motorist, who is only required to use "reasonable care." Common carrier vehicles must be safe and fit to transport passengers. A knowledgeable Florida Personal Injury Attorney in the Public Transportation Accident Claims subject will assist you to successfully litigate these cases.

Common carriers have a heightened duty to ensure:

  • Extra help for elderly and disabled passengers and seating for disabled and elderly seating
  • A seat for every passenger (except for municipal buses)
  • Vehicles are not overcrowded
  • Equipment is maintained in excellent working condition
  • Vehicles and equipment are free of debris
  • The vehicle does not start and stop suddenly
  • That the vehicle is not driven erratically
  • Passengers are discharged in a place of safety and at their destination
  • Regular schedules are followed
  • Baggage is not damaged

Accidents and injuries involving public transportation such as buses, trains, or cable cars include the following:

  • Sudden stops or starts
  • Closing doors on bus or train
  • Pedestrian knockdown involving bus, train, or cable car
  • Jerking motion on cable car
  • Struck on train platform

In most accidents involving public buses, trains, or cable cars, injury victims suffer head trauma, spinal cord injury, broken bones, and neck and back injuries. As a result, losses include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In order to ensure you receive compensation proportional to the scope and nature of your injury, our attorneys consult medical economists and life care planners who can accurately quantify the costs involved in your injury.
