Trusted Bus and Public Transit Accident Attorney
Millions of people who rely upon public transit to commute to work, school or other destination do so believing they will safely arrive at their destination. When the companies operating public transportation systems fail to properly maintain equipment or do not properly train their drivers and other employees, accident victims deserve to be fairly compensated for their injuries and losses. A bus and public transit lawyer from The Carrion Firm, PLLC, has the skills, knowledge and determination to aggressively take on public transit companies to make them pay what victims deserve.
Our personal injury lawyer makes a difference
Private and public transit companies have teams of lawyers and insurance adjustors fighting to prevent you from recovering the compensation you need and deserve following an accident. Personal injury attorney Dennis Carrion gives you a trusted advocate capable of holding the transit companies accountable when their negligent, reckless or careless conduct causes you to suffer a serious injury.
Accidents involving buses, subways, trains, taxi cabs or other modes of mass transit frequently require an attorney to have extensive knowledge of specialized laws and regulations applicable to common carriers, transportation companies and municipal transit agencies. Our bus and public transit accident attorney works to ensure the handling of your claim for damages complies with the laws and regulations.
Our aggressive, hard-hitting approach lets the transit companies and insurance carriers know you cannot be bullied and intimidated into settling your claim for less than what deserve. We level the playing field with a seasoned attorney capable of standing up for your right to be fairly compensated.
