Common Types of Accidents in Massachusetts
Since so many residents travel on public transportation all across the country, it is important to know what rights you have in such cases.
Major accidents we can represent clients in include:
- Airplane Disasters: Touted as one of the safest forms of transportation, when airplane accidents do occur, they normally cause tremendous injury and loss of life. Airplane accidents most often occur from pilot error.
- Train Accidents: Train and railroad accidents can also pose problems to rescue crews in that the victims can be difficult to reach and treat with the speed required. Additionally, when they happen in rural areas, there are few rescue / emergency medical personnel and facilities to handle the large number of victims.
- Bus Collisions: Similar to train and plane collisions, a bus accident can involve many victims who all require emergency treatment. The most common causes of bus accidents include inexperienced or insufficiently trained drivers, driver fatigue, driver negligence or recklessness, defective safety equipment, improperly maintained buses, and hazardous road and weather conditions.
- Subway or Metro Collisions: A major concern in our nation is the improper maintenance of public transportation roads and facilities from budget problems. When standard maintenance is not done, the results can be devastating. Just as important is the personnel who engineer the cars. They should be properly trained and responsible individuals.
