Injured While Riding Public Transportation? We Can Help You

For people throughout Pennsylvania, public transportation is how we visit friends and get to work. However, your safety is not always guaranteed. Whether you are on a bus, are riding in an Uber or are in a taxi, it doesn’t mean you are immune from accidents.

When you find yourself in this situation, Ches-Mont Personal Injury Law Center, LLC, and attorney George Gerasimowicz can help. For more than 40 years, he has represented injury victims in Montgomery County and the entire tri-county area.

Who Is Liable For My Injuries?

With public transportation injury cases, determining liability can be challenging. For example, if the bus driver is at fault, they are often protected by government immunity. This means that the amount of compensation riders can receive is limited. For rideshare companies, drivers can be considered independent contractors. This means the rideshare company might not be liable for your injuries.

It is important to note that drivers who participate in rideshare programs are required to have their own insurance. Furthermore, Uber and Lyft also have their own insurance that covers riders after the driver’s insurance has been exhausted.

At Ches-Mont Personal Injury Law Center, LLC, our role is to seek the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries. No matter what type of public transportation you were injured on, we will strive to hold the negligent parties accountable.
