Train, Bus & Plane Accidents

When riding on a train, bus, plane, taxi, or light rail your safety is regulated by laws governing “common carriers.”

When you use a public transportation, available to everyone who wants to ride and can afford the price of a ticket, both state and federal governments may be involved in the regulation of the carrier. If, in the course of your trip, you crossed a state line, claims for compensation for personal injuries from an accident may involve the laws of several states and the federal government. If the train, bus, or airplane was operated by a city or regional transit company owned by a government agency more restrictions on claims, particularly on the statute of limitations, apply. We can assist you with our Sacramento personal injury attorneys.

Bus Accidents

No one person on a bus or any vehicle in the vicinity is safe when there is a bus accident. Even at a moderate speed, the size and weight of a bus can cause major damage in a bus accident. Bus accidents often lead to serious personal injuries due to no seatbelts being available for passengers. Moreover, busses are not equipped with airbags, and passengers standing in the aisles raise the risk of personal injuries. Therefore, damages and personal injuries can be fatal in a bus accident. Due to buses having a high center mass relative to their wheel base, buses are prone to bus accidents when hit by a car on its side. Therefore, buses have a higher possibility to flip over when a car that is going at a moderate speed hits the side of the bus. If you have been injured in a bus accident while riding on a bus, contact David Allen & Associates for free consultation with our Sacramento bus accidents personal injury attorneys.

Train Accidents

Any lawsuit where a train or railroad is involved requires the special expertise of an experienced train accident personal injury attorney. There is no such thing as a minor train accident. Even “minor” train accidents can cause major trauma and personal injuries to victims due to the massive size and weight of most locomotive trains. Determining whose fault it is often complicated in train accidents. There can be many parties investigated to find out who is responsible. Our qualified train accident personal injury attorneys in Sacramento can navigate the process to get you the compensation you deserve in a train accident.

When someone says “train accident”, one thinks collision. There are many different types of train accidents. Some train accidents may include derailments, mechanical malfunctions, personal injuries while boarding or leaving a train, multiple train collisions, train/automobile collisions, and railroad crossing accidents and injuries that occur on the railroad. Such train accidents may be the result of numerous causes. Most commonly are conductor negligence, human error, equipment failure, or mechanical error.

Airplane Accidents

Airplane accidents can cause catastrophic personal injuries. This causes people to be fearful of flying even though they understand airplane accidents are rare. If you or a loved one sustained a personal injury from a jumbo jet, a small private airplane, a helicopter or an ultralight aircraft, our Sacramento airplane accident attorneys will do the necessary investigation to find out what caused the airplane accident. Recovering for physical injuries, medical expenses and lost wages caused by an airplane accident requires an experienced airplane accident personal injury attorney with the resources and commitment to achieve justice.

Due to airplanes being massive in size, airplane accidents can be very fatal and catastrophic. Personal injuries in an airplane accident can be heavy. There are many possible causes for an airplane accident. Some causes of airplane accidents may include pilot error, air traffic controller error, design and manufacturer defects, maintenance failures, sabotage, and inclement weather.

Furthermore, airplane accident cases can be very complicated compared to other personal injury cases. One reason could be that multiple parties may be liable for the airplane accident. With multiple liable parties, each party will definitely have their own insurance company lawyers to defend them in the airplane accident claim. Another reason of why airplane accidents can be complicated could be the estimation of damages is complex and needs expert testimony. Therefore, airplane accident claims can be daunting without the assistance of an attorney.

So, if you or your loved one has been injured in an airplane accident while riding on an airplane, contact David Allen & Associates for free consultation with our Sacramento airplane accident personal injury attorneys. Our Sacramento airplane accident personal injury lawyers can help you.
