Accidents can happen anywhere, whether a person is driving in a car, riding a motorcycle, or traveling on bus or in a taxi. Accidents in multi-passenger transport vehicles can and do occur, and many times those involved in the accident do not know what to do or how to proceed. Because there may be many people involved in the accident on the metro bus, the tour bus, or in the taxi, the case can be quite complex. Before you agree to sign anything that will settle the matter, it’s important that you talk with an experienced personal injury attorney. A San Bernardino personal injury attorney will be able to make sure that you are getting the best deal for the injuries you have suffered.

The term multi-passenger transport might not be familiar to everyone. The definition is simply any vehicle that carries more than one passenger in a professional capacity. This could include vehicles such as taxis, limousines, tour buses, gambling buses, subways, trolleys, and public buses. It can even include shuttle buses, such as the ones that people use to go to and from the airport.
As with all other types of motor vehicles, accidents can and do happen. Collisions with other vehicles, dangerous conditions on the roadway, defective parts in the vehicle, and negligence on the part of the driver of the vehicle in which you are a passenger may be a cause for the accident. Defective crossing guards or missing signals might be the cause of an accident involving a train or a trolley. Some buses are top heavy, and if the driver doesn’t have proper training and enough experience, they can topple. Large vehicles such as a bus can be difficult to control and stop as well.
Finding out the cause of the accident is important, and it can be the determining factor in how you fare in your case. When you’have been in an accident on one of these vehicles, contact our law offices so we can help determine the best actions for you to take.
