St. Louis Metro Transit Injury Lawyer
Public buses and light rail carry millions of riders every year in St. Louis and communities throughout Missouri and the United States. Fortunately, the Metro Transit Authority has an excellent record in most communities and very few injuries occur. But every year, serious injuries result from lack of security at bus stops and on the vehicles. Pedestrians and bikers are struck at crossing points and intersections and buses get into crashes. The local authority maintains liability for covering injured passengers for financial damages resulting from any incident or accident on their vehicles.
If you were injured in an accident involving a bus, train or other form of public transportation anywhere in Missouri, talk to an attorney at Bley & Evans, LC, right away. We know the civil liability laws regarding public transportation authorities and government entities and we aggressively pursue strategies for full and fair settlements. Since we opened our doors in Columbia, we have helped numerous plaintiffs recover the money damages they are entitled to for their injuries involving negligence on the part of a public bus or mass transit authority.
There may be a filing deadline
Local government entities may have a time deadline for filing an intent to claim damages against one of their departments. The deadline may be as short as 30 days. If you were injured in an accident involving a bus or other form of public transportation, do not wait to talk to an experienced personal injury attorney at our firm. Let us help you start the process right away.
