Filing an accident claim against a government agency or transit authority is very different from suing a negligent driver. Unlike with auto accident claims, the time frame for presenting a transit authority claim is subject to strict requirements that favor the local government. As a result, investigation and case preparation is crucial for proving a public transportation accident claim.

This news clip takes a look at a 2012 train derailment accident occurring fifteen miles outside of Baltimore. Following the accident, federal safety officials were dispatched to investigate the operations, equipment, and safety checks prior to the incident. Even though the crew didn’t see or feel any disturbance before the crash, the train jumped the tracks, killing two college students.
