When an accident on public transportation leads to serious injury

While public transportation is statistically very safe, accidents happen regularly. When a major injury happens from an accident on a metro bus, a school bus, a taxicab, a ferry, or a community transit shuttle, the resulting claim is complicated and requires an experienced personal injury attorney.

Attorney Bill Coats has the experience to manage your bus, mass transit, or transportation accident claim

Bill’s 20 years of legal experience in Bellingham and Whatcom County enables him to efficiently oversee all aspects of a complex transit accident claim. These claims tend to be complicated, with multiple at-fault parties and large insurance companies fighting aggressively to defend the claim.

Common causes of transportation and bus accidents include:

  • operator error;
  • poor staff training;
  • equipment failure and lack of maintenance;
  • aggressive driving by drivers of other vehicles;
  • road congestion and construction zones.

Injuries from bus and transportation accidents can be serious and permanent

An accident from a bus, taxi, or mass transit collision can cause more serious injuries because often the passengers are not wearing seat belts and have no airbags or other safety gear to protect them. Even a fairly minor collision can result in serious or permanent injuries. Bill Coats knows that mass transportation companies and government agencies employ aggressive insurance companies and defense attorneys to protect them from liability. He knows how to deal with insurance adjusters to negotiate a full settlement for his clients. And he knows that when a full settlement is not offered, it’s time to take the claim to a jury.

Don’t take on a huge insurance company alone – you will lose.
