Public Transportation Attorney Miami, Broward, Palm Beach
Public transportation is popular in towns and cities across Florida. It is an economical and convenient transportation option for thousands of working-class Floridians. But public transportation doesn’t just refer to taxis and buses. It can also refer to trains, airplanes, trolleys, ferries, shuttles, moveable walkways, elevators, and escalators.
Local government bodies and companies manage most public transportation systems. Therefore, they have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of their passengers and all the pedestrians surrounding their vehicles. If they fail to keep people safe due to a mechanical problem or employee negligence, these responsible entities will owe compensation to the victims.

When Do You Need to Hire a Public Transportation Attorney?
Public transportation requires you to put your health and safety in the hands of another person. When a public transportation accident occurs, it usually affects more than one person. That is almost always the case with bus and airplane accidents. In addition, there could be several liable parties for the accident, such as the driver and their employer.
If you have been injured in a public transportation accident, you need to immediately consult with a public transportation attorney. They will inform you of all your legal rights in the matter, and the estimated amount of compensation owed to you. The cause of the accident and the severity of your injuries are the two primary factors in calculating your compensation value.
Here are the typical causes of public transportation accidents:
- Bad weather
- Reckless driving
- Poor maintenance
- Driver negligence
- Intoxicated driver (drugs or alcohol)
- Poor safety precautions
If the responsible parties are found to have committed any of these acts, you’ll have a much stronger case to seek more compensation for your claim. But the only way you’ll know how much compensation you are entitled to receive is if you consult with a qualified and experienced public transportation attorney.

How do public transportation accident claims work?
Public transportation accident claims can be rather complicated. That is why you need the services of a professional attorney with experience in managing these claims for their clients.
First, we’ll investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident and collect evidence to support your claim. Since you were likely an innocent passenger, there is virtually zero chance of any blame getting put on you. Instead, the entire responsibility falls onto the vehicle operator and their employer. We will file a personal injury claim against these entities on your behalf.
Their insurance carrier will likely want to negotiate a settlement to avoid a civil trial. If the settlement amount is fair and equal to the value of the damages you incurred, then we’ll agree to the settlement. Otherwise, we will pursue a court case against the liable parties to ensure you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries and other damages incurred.
