Are you one of the many Connecticut residents who depends on public transportation to get you where you need to go? Were you injured in a public transit accident? If so, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your losses.
Connecticut has an amazing public transportation system. Thousands of residents take trains, buses and taxis to school, work and a variety of other places. These individuals depend on these vehicles being safe for use and count on their operators being fit to drive them. Unfortunately, though, accidents happen.

When a mass transit accident occurs, quite a few people may get hurt in one fell swoop. The injuries suffered may be severe in nature, as most public transportation vehicles lack seat belts or other protective devices. When injured in a mass transit accident, who is responsible?
The answer to this question really depends on the details of the incident. If you choose to pursue legal action in an effort to seek compensation for your losses, an experienced attorney will need to take time to fully investigate the matter. In doing so, it may be possible to pinpoint who is responsible for the public transit accident, whether it be the city, the driver or a third party. Once the responsible party or parties is identified, personal injury claims may be filed and litigated in civil court. If litigation proves successful, the court may award you maximum relief for your documented losses.
