Public transportation providers are considered common carriers and are required by law to use the utmost care and diligence in regard to the safety of their passengers. Our attorneys are committed to holding common carriers accountable for the safety of people who have contracted their services.

The term common carriers refers to a wide range of vehicles that move large groups of people, including commercial buses, light rail, trains, ferries, charter buses and any transportation operated by the Sacramento Regional Transit District, commonly referred to as the RT.

Public Transportation Accidents

Truck and train wrecks, bus accidents, and light rail accidents have the potential to cause serious and catastrophic injuries. High speed, broken cross gates and lights, and improper maintenance often contribute to the severity of injuries. Many public transportation vehicles and stops have video cameras that enable our attorneys to clearly demonstrate the cause of an accident and the liability of the carrier. We are dedicated to helping victims of public transportation accidents optimize the compensation they receive for their injuries.
