Public Bus Accident Lawsuits

Attorneys serving victims of public transit bus accidents in Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and greater Maryland

When a careless bus driver causes a serious accident, the lives of injured bus passengers and occupants of other vehicles are often forever altered. Sadly, these catastrophic accidents are all-too-common in the metro D.C. and Baltimore areas.

While most public bus drivers are focused, hard-working, and fully qualified individuals, some drivers may receive poor training, inadequate supervision, or act negligently. Because buses like those operated by MetroBus are so large and heavy, careless drivers can cause catastrophic injuries and even deaths when they fail to operate their bus in a safe manner. If you or a loved one suffered a serious, life-changing injury involving a bus, you may be able to hold the municipality or transit company responsible for your damages.

Metrobus Injury Lawyers

Metrobus is the sixth busiest bus agency in the U.S. WMATA’s Metrobus services over 11,000 bus stops in the Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area. The Metrobus fleet includes 1,500 buses and shuttles making 400,000 trips on 325 routes everyday.
