If you have been involved in an accident on public transportation, it’s vitally important to call a lawyer immediately.
Accidents on public transportation may be governed by different laws from other accidents, and there may be special notification or limitation periods and special laws that determine who is responsible for your injuries and what you can and can’t claim for. For example, certain laws will bar you from claiming any accident benefits unless your bus collides with another vehicle or obstacle. Changes in the Ontario Insurance Act may prevent accident benefit claims by you if you are a public transit passenger. You need an experienced lawyer to help you sort this out.
