Bus and Train Accidents

Making a Personal Injury Claim After a Bus or Train Collision

Mass transit accidents have unique characteristics. If the bus accident or train collision involves a public transit authority, then special legal rules may apply that shorten the period of time that any injury victim has within which to file a claim. If the bus collision or train accident involves a private company, then your attorney may have to carefully untangle ownership and employment relationships to determine who the ultimately responsible company or companies are.

Bus accidents and train accident injuries may result from unexpected stops, collisions, derailments or other causes. After a mass transit accident, the best way to protect your rights as an injury victim is to consult an experienced attorney who can immediately begin an investigation into the causes of the accident.

Greenberg & Stone, Is a Nationwide Truck and Mass Transit Accident Law Firm

The AV-rated* law firm of Greenberg & Stone, is led by partners Stewart G. Greenberg and Mark D. Stone, who have been practicing law since 1979 and 1986, respectively. Joined by associate attorney Howard J. Weitzner, our legal team offers more than 60 years’ collective experience litigating personal injury claims after serious accidents.

With the help of our professional staff and our Rapid Response Team, we have the resources to travel anywhere in the country to investigate and litigate major injury cases. Whether the defendants are the driver, owner, lessor, the manufacturer of the vehicle, an independent contractor or any combination of the above, we conduct a thorough investigation to discover who is truly responsible. Headquartered in Florida, we work nationwide through our network of local associate law firms.

Our trial lawyers offer strategic and personalized legal service to injury victims. We take the time to understand the full effect of accidents on the lives of our clients. We then work with financial and medical experts to create a complete picture of our clients’ losses and needs that will prove persuasive to a jury.

Accidents Involving Commercial Vehicles or Mass Transit

Our trial lawyers fight for clients who have been injured in many types of commercial vehicle and mass transit accidents:

  • Airport shuttles
  • Hotel shuttles
  • Rental car shuttles
  • Street cars/trolleys
  • City buses
  • Light rails
  • Theme park monorails
  • School buses
  • Private coaches
  • Party buses

Finding all responsible parties is a fact-intensive inquiry. It involves firsthand legal and factual research by your lawyer and his support staff, but this investigation is necessary to help ensure the best possible results.

The trucking and commercial bussing industries are full of complex business relationships. Just because there is a name on the side of a truck does not necessarily mean that name is responsible, or that other parties are not responsible. At Greenberg & Stone, we conduct the research necessary to determine all parties who may be liable for the crash. We carefully analyze the applicable state and federal regulations and rules, depending on the circumstances and location of the case.
