Trusted Toledo OH Transit Accident Lawyers
We help the injured get the compensation they need and deserve
There are many ways to get around in Toledo without driving a car. Some people take a TARTA bus to different locations in the city. Others travel out of town by taking a bus or train out of Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza. But an accident can happen that leaves several people hurt. The transit accident attorneys at Gervelis Law Firm fight for the rights of the injured.
People traveling by bus or train usually don't wear seatbelts, so a sudden crash can throw them from their seats. Depending on the severity of the crash, passengers can be left with a wide range of injuries. These include broken bones, cuts and bruises, whiplash injuries, traumatic injury or a spinal cord injury.
Treatment for a transit accident injury can involve surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, medication and multiple follow-up appointments. Recovery can take weeks, months or even longer. Some victims may never fully recover. The cost of treatment can become overwhelming very quickly, and injuries may leave victims unable to work.
Our attorneys know the impact a transit accident injury can have on you and your family. That's why we are determined to help you get the maximum compensation possible. You should not have to pay the costs for recovering from an accident that was not your fault.
Fighting for a resolution that meets your needs
Transit accident cases can be complicated, as there can be several parties involved. These include the driver or operator, the company that owns the bus or train, companies that built or installed parts on the bus or train, and multiple insurance companies. And they will all have lawyers looking out for their best interests. That's why you need an experienced lawyer who will fight for you.
Our legal team investigates your transit accident to get the facts and find out who was responsible. We look for evidence of negligence by the driver or operator, such as fatigue or alcohol or drug use. We check to see if the company acted responsibly and if any defective parts led to the crash.
Our attorneys know how to build strong cases. We aren't interested in quick and cheap settlements. We approach every case prepared to fight for you in court. When insurance companies see we are ready to go the distance for you, they often agree to negotiate a settlement that meets your needs.
