Public Transportation Accidents
If you have been injured as a passenger on BC or Vancouver public transportation such as the bus, SkyTrain, SeaBus, West Coast Express, ferry, a taxi or private bus; and were not at fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering and any financial losses due to the accident.
Not all public transportation accidents are caused by a collision: they can include falls on the vehicle due to sudden braking or encountering hidden hazards. Public transportation accidents can either be minor or catastrophic, involving multiple victims and severe results such as head injuries and spinal cord injuries.
No matter what type of accident you have experienced, DO NOT speak with TransLink, ICBC or a representative from the transportation company right away—be sure to consult a personal injury lawyer first. Your BC or Vancouver public transportation accident claim may be more complicated than it seems, involving several parties such as additional victims, the driver(s) and/or maintenance staff, to name just a few.
