Public transportation is an invaluable part of social infrastructure throughout the entire United States, including the state of North Carolina. People from all walks of life ride buses as part of their daily commute, including students, workers and even tourists.
It is only natural for the individuals riding or taking public transportation to have complete trust in these public transport systems. These entities, after all, have a legal obligation to take necessary measures to keep their riders safe from all forms of preventable harm, and to comply with the numerous federal and state laws that govern the industry.
When bus drivers or public transportation operators act negligent or recklessly, the risk for injuries and accidents increases tremendously. Each year, thousands of people across the country suffer from injuries and a substantial loss of income due to injuries from bus accidents and collisions, and other forms of public transportation accidents. Safety codes are set into place for a reason, and if these are not met or followed, then these negligent individuals or entities must be held accountable for the damages they cause and the dangers that they create.
It is very likely that local governments and public transportation authorities will work quickly and aggressively to deny any form of negligence in order to protect their reputations, or may try to settle claims quietly and pay victims less than the amount they deserve.
