Oklahoma City Injury Attorney Representing Bus Accident Victims
If you are injured on a bus or train, it's important to seek legal representation as soon as possible. While private transportation companies are required to carry substantial insurance policies to pay for the damages of the people they injure, an accident involving a large number of passengers can exhaust the available coverage. Early victims may receive full compensation, while those who file later claims may be left with nothing.
Personal Injury Lawyers Standing up for Victims of Metro Transit Accidents in Oklahoma City
At the law office of Joseph J. Reinke in Oklahoma City, our bus accident attorneys represent victims of metro transit, bus, casino limo and train accidents. If you or a family member has been injured in an accident involving a common carrier, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and your options.
What Is a Common Carrier?
Transportation carriers such as casino buses and the Oklahoma City Metro Transit are known as "common carriers." As such, they have a high level of responsibility toward the safety of their passengers as well as other drivers on the road. By law, transportation companies are required to hire qualified drivers and to perform safety checks on their vehicles.
If you are injured in a bus or train accident, it's important to investigate such issues as:
- The history of the driver
- Safety checks on the vehicle
- Maintenance records of the vehicle
- Past safety violations by the company
- Whether the transportation company operated under a different name in the past
Our personal injury lawyers handle all bus and train accident cases on a contingency fee basis, so until and unless our attorneys win a favorable judgment or settlement in your case, you will not have to pay attorney fees.
