Can I sue a transit authority for my injury?
There is no easy answer to this question. The best answer is a qualified “yes.” Transit authorities are often protected by special laws that give them immunity from many kinds of claims. There are also legal notice provisions, where a claimant must formally notify a transit authority prior to filing a claim, and where the right to bring a claim will be lost if notice is not filed properly. Having experienced counsel to assist in avoiding the potential pitfalls with bringing a claim against a transit agency will turn a qualified “yes” into a definite “yes.”
If you or a loved one are injured by a transit authority, please seek the assistance of trained and experienced counsel. The Lietz Law Firm stands ready to assist when injury or death occurs due to the acts or omissions of transit authorities.
