Finding the Facts in Public Transportation Accidents
Public transportation serves an important and necessary role in moving people to their homes, work places, schools, medical appointments, social and family obligations. When there is a public transportation accident, it is important to understand what happened and why.
At the Girardi | Keese law firm, we have been investigating personal injury accidents for more than 40 years. Our lawyers work hard to assure that victims get the compensation they need and deserve.

Investigation is the first step to personal injury compensation.
Public transportation accidents present legal and investigatory challenges. Was there human error involved? Was there a component failure? What was the mechanical and maintenance history of the bus, train or taxi? Were the train tracks properly maintained? Was evidence was provided by the crash data recorder?
To find out what happened, our personal injury attorneys employ experts to review and reconstruct the accident. In many cases, there is a products liability component to the accident's cause. In a train accident, for example, tables came loose and forcibly struck and killed passengers. Serious injuries and fatalities require substantial compensation for the victims and their families.
Our commitment to safe public transportation is well known.
Our law firm's advice and counsel is sought by other lawyers and by community organizations that know our reputation for defending the rights of injured people. For example, we are currently on the plaintiffs' steering committee for the 2009 MetroLink crash in Los Angeles.
