Public Transportation Accidents

The Ucheomumu Law Group's injury law attorneys are experienced advocates on behalf of clients injured in public transportation or "common carrier" accidents. Accidents can occur on buses, trains and ferries, or in taxis and van shuttles. Operators of these vehicles are often held to a higher standard of care and vigilance than the average motorist, to ensure passenger safety.

Common transportation carriers are often operated by state or local entities, which means there can be specific time limitations and requirements for filing and pursuing injury claims against these entities. Our attorneys are well-versed in such timelines, and carefully review these statutory notice and deadlines with clients to help them present their claims for compensation within the applicable mandated time periods.
