Public Transportation Injuries
Posted on Monday, December 12th, 2016
In the United States, there are approximately 30 million people a day that ride public transportation. People take public transportation for many different reasons including going to and from work, school, home, sporting events, medical treatments, or even just to get from point A to point B regardless of what it is. When a person or company accepts money for transportation, this service is considered a “common carrier,” which include:
- Buses (public, school, tour, etc.)
- Water taxis
- Movable walkways
- Airport shuttles
- Plus, many more, but you get the idea
With millions of passengers getting a day on and off public transportation, it seems almost impossible to keep everyone safe all the time. Unfortunately, auto accidents can happen and can ruin the lives of so many people. Aside from auto accidents, faulty equipment and unmarked hazards can also cause harm to passengers who ride public transportation.
