When we get on a city bus, or a train or other public transportation vehicle we never expect to be in an accident. Even if we’re in our own vehicles or walking, we typically think of public transportation as safe vehicles on the road. Unfortunately accidents can and still do happen.
If you’re in an accident with a public transportation vehicle, the consequences can be dire and the injuries you can suffer can be devastating and even life threatening.

Being in an accident on or because of a public transportation vehicle are traumatic experiences that no one should have to deal with alone. Not only can it be confusing knowing what to do, but getting the compensation you need to be made whole is a difficult affair without effective legal counsel.
Why Choose the Law Offices of John Phebus?
Public transportation accidents can be more difficult than a regular accident, such as car accidents. Depending on who’s at fault you may have to deal with the city that controls the public transportation system. This means that the pressure to settle will be higher and it will require legal assistance to get the money you deserve. Public transportation accidents often cause more severe injuries, and the death rates are much higher for this type of accident.
The first thing you should do is document the accident by calling 911 and reporting to any parties involved. This way each party is notified and the process can begin to document the accident, the circumstances surrounding it and the extent of the damages.
The next step is to gather what evidence you can of what happened. Pictures of the accident, witness testimony or statements from other drivers will go a long way in bolstering your case when it goes to trial. This information will be very important in your claim, and your Glendale public transportation accident lawyer will help fight for your case.
If you haven’t sought medical attention at this point, now is the time to do so. Going to the ER or a physician to get medical care serves two purposes. You can get the treatment you need to get on the road to recovery, and the documentation you need to verify your injuries. This documentation is crucial in proving your case and getting just compensation.
The last thing to remember is to not talk about your case or accept any offers from insurance companies. Any offer you receive will not be comparable with your injuries. Instead, get in touch with one of the lawyers at the Law Offices of John Phebus and find out what your case is really worth.
