Our Attorneys Handle Mass Transit Accident Cases in Connecticut

Recover damages for bus and commuter train accidents in Connecticut

Mass transit provides commuters with inexpensive, reliable transportation throughout the Northeast region and our local communities, including Stamford, Norwalk, Bridgeport, Greenwich, Darien and Stratford. You reasonably expect the governments and private companies responsible for our bus and train systems to act with care, but this is often not the case. When accidents do occur, the resulting injuries are typically serious. The Pickel Law Firm, LLC is a well-respected injury firm in Stamford. Our personal injury attorneys possess more than 65 years of combined experience in successfully litigating challenging mass transit accident claims.

Suing the city, county or state

The Connecticut Department of Transportation — known as ConnDot — runs and oversees many of the buses and trains in the area. Several privately-owned companies have contracts with ConnDot that regulate how they conduct business and what measures are taken to ensure the safety of their passengers. ConnDot and local municipalities are also responsible for much of the upkeep of railroad tracks, train stations and bus stops on the bus and train routes.

Filing a claim against the city, county or state for damages involves different procedures than suing private businesses or people. Our law firm guides you through each step of this process, which starts with filing your notice of claim. Because of the different deadlines for suing the governments of Stamford, Norwalk, Bridgeport, Greenwich, Darien, Stratford and Connecticut, our firm recommends you consult with us as soon as possible to avoid inadvertently waiving your rights to sue for the damages you deserve.

Common mass transit accidents

No mass transit accident claim is too small or too big for our firm. We handle catastrophic and fatal injury claims resulting from:

  • A pedestrian being hit by a train or a bus
  • Train derailment
  • Bus rollover
  • High-speed collision
  • Fire
  • An assault on the train or bus or at a station

Our lawyers also hold the negligent parties responsible for fractures, sprains and lacerations resulting from poorly maintained properties and inadequately trained conductors and drivers.
