Using public transit is a responsible way to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases; because of soaring gas prices, it is also a smart way to save money. Unfortunately, sometimes good intentions turn sour, and public transit accidents happen regularly.

Under the new Ontario Insurance Act, public transit passengers cannot make accident benefits claims in any case except when the public transit vehicle collides with another automobile or object. The public transit driver and owner can be sued, however, in instances where no accident benefits can be claimed, since the driver and owner of the public transit vehicle will not be considered a ‘protected defendant’.

Bus accident victims can suffer from serious and fatal injuries. These injuries require substantial medical support, and cause extreme pain and suffering. We will help ensure that your losses are compensated. If you are ever involved in a public transit accident, our personal injury lawyers can help you receive the compensation you deserve.
