Public Transportation Accidents

While public transportation can provide a safe and convenient way to get around, a single accident can affect dozens of families. There is no room for negligence when you are carrying hundreds of passengers to their destination.

At Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante in New Haven, Connecticut, our attorneys hold public transportation companies accountable when their negligence results in serious injury or wrongful death. We handle cases involving accidents on CTtransit (Connecticut Transit) buses, the Metro-North commuter railroad and other types of public transportation.

Negligence And Public Transportation Accidents

Accidents on public transportation may occur for a variety of reasons:

  • Excessive speed
  • Improper maintenance
  • Distracted driving (In Connecticut, bus drivers cannot use handheld or hands-free cellphones)
  • Inadequate security
  • Drug use by employees
  • Defects in the roadway
  • Defective equipment
  • Unsafe driving by other motorists

While no one can undo the damages caused by a serious accident, our lawyers have the ability to help you obtain the full compensation you deserve for everything you have lost. A number of our lawyers have been listed in the publication, "The Best Lawyers in America." We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.
