Millions of people rely on public transportation to get around Baltimore and surrounding areas of Maryland. Inevitably, some of those bus and subway trips result in injuries to riders, pedestrians or other motorists. These injuries can be devastating physically and emotionally, especially when they occurred because of someone else’s negligence.
The law firm of Belsky & Horowitz, LLC, has experience with mass transit accidents. Our Baltimore mass transit accident lawyers are familiar with the special considerations in claims against public entities. We can explain these issues in a free consultation. We will help you with your claim and fight for you to get the compensation you deserve.
There is a time limit to bring claims in public transit accidents. It’s best to act quickly. You give yourself plenty of time to gather evidence for your case and you keep the details fresh in your mind so you can give accurate descriptions of what happened. Bringing a claim forward after the statute of limitations has passed will almost certainly result in your case getting thrown out. Call today to protect your rights.
Experience with Public Transportation Accidents in Maryland
Our attorneys have brought successful claims against the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), the Maryland Transit Authority (MTA), Amtrak and locally owned transit companies. We represent clients in all scenarios:
- Injuries to Metrorail subway riders
- Injuries to Metrobus passengers
- Injuries to MetroAccess paratransit users
- Injuries to Baltimore Light Rail commuters
- People injured in collisions with a bus or train
- Pedestrians and bicyclists struck by buses or light rail
Normally we do not rush to file lawsuits, but in the case of government agencies a notice of claim must be filed within one year of the accident. We help clients identify the appropriate government agency and preserve their legal rights.
We excel at establishing that the bus driver, subway operator or other transit employee was at fault for the accident, or that the transit agency was negligent in hiring, training or lax in upkeep of its fleet. In cases when a private citizen caused a collision with a bus or train, we pursue all avenues of insurance coverage to secure compensation for our clients.
