Public Transportation Safety Issues

In metropolitan areas, public transportation can be of almost incalculable value. It can serve to reduce roadway congestion, resulting in shorter commute times, increased productivity, and less stress for commuters who drive themselves as well as those persons who take advantage of public transportation options. Unfortunately, negligence on the part of public transit personnel or the entity responsible for overseeing an area’s public transportation can create a heightened risk of serious accidents. There can never be a perfectly safe mode of transportation – even walking comes with some inherent risks – but there can be no tolerance for negligence.

If you have been injured while using public transportation or while on the premises of related property, then it may be appropriate for you to consider filing a civil lawsuit. This may gain you compensation for your medical bills and other damages as appropriate. Contact the Des Moines personal injury lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233.

Dangers of Public Transportation

By its very nature, public transportation demands that those who utilize it place their faith in the professional competency of the public transit employees. When that faith is betrayed by negligent or reckless behaviors, then a person is not empowered to respond in the event of a looming accident or incident. Some of the dangers of public transportation may include:

  • Inadequate bus, train, or railway maintenance
  • Defective or malfunctioning vehicles
  • Insufficient security personnel
  • Negligent hiring
  • Operating a vehicle while intoxicated
  • Distracted driving
  • Drowsy driving
  • Lack of training
