Types of Public Transit Accidents
Public transportation most commonly refers to buses, subways, and trams. Each of these transit options is open to the public for a fee.
Since public transit is open to the public, providers must follow a strict set of safety guidelines. Unfortunately, they sometimes fail to do so, either knowingly or unknowingly. Regardless, the entity that runs the public transit service may be liable for any injuries that result from their services.
Common public transit accidents include traffic collisions and derailing. These accidents all may lead to serious injury or death, especially since they involve a large number of people sharing a relatively small space. Many times, public transit accidents result from negligence.
