When economic times are tough, one way that people try to save a few dollars is by taking public transportation to work. In Denver, that may include light rail transit. Light rail is a good, safe way to get to and from work, save some money, and maybe even decrease the size of your carbon footprint. Although light rail is one of the safer modes of transportation available, there is always, of course, some risk of accident.
There are over a thousand light rail accidents annually across the country, with several hundred injuries and over $2 million in property damage. All things considered, these numbers are very small and tend to support the idea that light rail is a safe way to travel. Of course, those people who are involved in light rail accidents may have serious injuries with long-term effects to recover from. If you or a member of your family have been involved in a light rail accident, speak with an attorney at Fuicelli & Lee, P.C. as soon as possible to discuss your options: 303-355-7202.
Do I Have a Case?
In civil court, one of the most important concepts to understand is negligence. In plain English, negligence is when someone acts in a way that no reasonable person would, or fails to act in a way that any reasonable person would. If someone’s negligence was responsible for your injury, then you may be entitled to compensation for you medical bills, property damage, and possibly for non-economic damages as well.
In the case of a light rail accident, there may be negligence on the part of the agency that operates the train, an employee of that agency, or the manufacturer of the train or equipment. Negligence can be much more complicated than it sounds; and experienced attorney can look at the details of your situation and help you decide whether there has in fact been negligence.
