The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority is responsible for providing public transit throughout Greater Boston and is one of the busiest transportation systems in the United States. Thus, the chances of an injury occurring is greater due to the sheer volume of passengers and number of rides provided each day.
Many types of injuries are possible, including:
- Slip and fall on the premises at a transit station
- Negligent operation of a bus or subway train resulting in an accident
- Accidents involving pedestrians
- Negligent security or maintenance resulting in injury
If an injury occurs due to the fault of the MBTA, it is important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible in order to protect your ability to receive compensation. Claims against the MBTA must be filed within three years of the accident, and notice of the incident must be reported to the MBTA within two years of the accident.
If you or a loved one sustained an injury resulting from an accident while traveling in transit provided by the MBTA, contact an experienced personal injury attorney at Iannella & Mummolo today.
