Bus drivers, taxi drivers and other commercial drivers have the same responsibility to exercise caution and follow all traffic laws as other drivers on the road. However, these drivers can make mistakes or misjudge a situation leading to a serious accident.
If you or a loved one was injured on public transportation or in an accident involving a commercial vehicle, you may have a claim if the accident was caused by another’s negligence. Summit Injury Law has extensive experience assisting victims of all types of motor vehicle accidents occurring in Salt Lake City, Park City and elsewhere in Utah.
Determining the cause of a bus accident or taxi accident can quickly become complex. Depending on the circumstances, it may be necessary to file a claim against the Utah Transit Authority, against a private transportation company or against an individual driver and his or her insurance company.
Summit Injury Law can explore all possible avenues of liability, drawing upon a network of investigators and other experts who can analyze the cause of your accident and financial impact of your injuries. We can then use this information to seek maximum compensation to which you are entitled by law.
