Enlist the Aid of Shelly Hawkins, Train Accident Lawyer
Every year, thousands of people are killed or sustain serious physical injuries in accidents involving subway, bus and train accidents. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are the result of negligent actions of subway, truck and bus drivers and their employers. Reasons for these tragic accidents include:
- Poor training
- Negligent driving
- Violations of vehicle or traffic laws
- Improperly maintained vehicles/vehicles that need repair
Subway, bus and train operators and their employers are under a duty to ensure that passengers are safely transported to their destination. If an operator acts negligently in any way and causes harm to passengers or pedestrians, the employee and his or her company may be found negligent. But when an accident occurs, injured parties often find themselves the subject of scrutiny and suspicion. These agencies employ internal investigators to collect evidence and conduct an investigation into the cause of subway, bus and train accidents that will be used against any claim for compensation. Your claim may be accepted, but it will be the most minimal amount possible.
