Common Accidents at Transportation Facilities
According to statistics, public transportation is a multi-billion dollar
industry that employs close to 400,000 people; there are close to 10.5
billion trips taken on public transportation every year. That means that
most public transportation facilities are extremely busy and fast-paced—making
them inherently risky.
There are many dangers that a transportation industry employee may face, such as:
Accidents may involve slipping onto train tracks, getting crushed by a
bus, airplane, or other heavy machinery. Catastrophic injuries may be
caused by train collisions, tram, or rail accidents, or even ferry accidents.
Often, transportation facility dangers or accidents are caused by some
form of negligence. Whether an accident is caused by lack of training,
improper safety standards, or blatant violations, it is crucial that you
get the legal help you deserve.
