Scene of a car accidentBringing a personal injury claim against a government entity or transit authority is very different from filing an auto accident claim against a negligent driver. In transportation accident cases, the time and manner for filing a claim are structured in a way that favors the local government. The personal injury attorneys at Sussman & Simcox: Attorneys at Law help people navigate this complex process, representing those involved in highway, rail transportation, and bus accidents.

Highways

Montgomery County Ride-On is the main public transportation system throughout Montgomery County, Maryland. In addition to serving the Montgomery County area, Ride-On buses to transport people in the community of Langley Park in Prince George’s County, the Takoma Metro station, and Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington D.C. As Maryland roads and highways become more congested, the risk of highway accidents involving heavy traffic and high speeds increases.

Railways

The Maryland Area Regional Commuter system is made up of three lines in the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan area. MARC trains carry the risk of colliding with motor vehicles sharing the roadways, which poses a risk to nearby drivers and train passengers. These trains are carrying multiple passengers at a time, so an accident can result in mass injuries for the people aboard. This is especially true during the winter months, as these trains must navigate snowy and icy road conditions.

Metro Stations

Collisions resulting in injuries and fatalities aren’t uncommon in the Washington Metro area. The D.C.’s transit authority has experienced a number of rail breaks, which can cause a train to leave its tracks and put the passengers in harm’s way.  In fact, a 2005 article in the Washington Post criticized the frequent derailments on the Washington Metro that could have been prevented had the transit authority put in place recommended safety measures.
