Residents of New Haven and people across Connecticut rely on all forms of public transportation. Every day, thousands of people ride buses and trains, take taxis and use other forms of public transportation to get to and from work, school or other destinations.
Transportation service providers and their employees have a duty to ensure the passenger safety. This includes the safe operation of vehicles and ensuring the safety of the vehicles themselves. It also includes the safety of passengers waiting at bus stops and train stations. Any failure in that duty puts passengers at serious risk of injury.
If you have been injured in an incident while using public transportation, you may have a claim to collect damages. At Jacobs & Dow, we represent victims in all types of public transit accidents. Whether you were a passenger taking a taxi, bus or train, or you were hit by one of these vehicles as a pedestrian, bicyclist or the occupant of a car, we are prepared to seek the full compensation for you.
