Boston Bus Accident Lawyer
If you are involved in an accident with a taxi or a bus, sorting out the liability can be confusing. The taxicab or bus company will have insurance adjusters and lawyers working to protect the company’s interests after an accident. You need a Boston bus accident attorney who can protect you and make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
At Rawson Merrigan & Litner, LLP we have more than 75 years of combined personal injury experience. Our bus accident lawyers represent people who were injured in taxi and bus accidents in the Boston and Greenfield areas.
Were Regulations Followed?
Drivers of buses and taxis are held to higher standards than non-commercial drivers. They are required to follow driver regulations specific to their industries. When they do not follow these regulations, accidents often happen. Our Boston accident lawyers will investigate your accident and find out if the driver underwent drug and alcohol testing, if he or she had been driving for more hours than they are allowed by regulation and if he or she was distracted while driving.
The companies that own the buses and taxis also have regulations to follow. It is important to investigate soon after the accident to see if their negligence was the cause. If the vehicle was not properly maintained or if the company hired unqualified drivers, they can be held liable for the accident.
