Public Transit & TTC Accidents
At McLeish Orlando, we represent people who have been injured in accidents involving public transit vehicles. We are experienced in dealing with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC accidents), Metrolinx and other regional transit authorities to resolve injury claims as quickly and effectively as possible.
We focus on representing the drivers and passengers of vehicles who have been involved in serious accidents with public transit vehicles. This portion of our practice encompasses:
- Buses, including TTC buses, charter buses, motor coaches, GO buses, VIA buses and school buses
- Trains, including GO trains
- Airport shuttles
- Taxi cabs
Some possible causes of public transit accidents include:
- Operator error
- Drunk, drug-impaired or distracted drivers or operators
- Improper vehicle maintenance
- Defective vehicles or equipment
- Improper operator training/unlicensed drivers or operators
Regardless of the cause of your public transit accident, we will put all our resources and experience to work in pursuing claims against the operator, transit company, maintenance crew or any other potentially liable party.
Our skilled Accident Benefit Clerks will also work toward recovering the maximum amount of benefits for our clients. In Ontario, accident benefits are considered “no fault,” meaning that you are entitled to the benefits even if there is a dispute as to who caused the accident. These benefits are typically available through your own insurer and are meant to provide an immediate source of relief and recovery. This includes benefits such as partial (or total) income replacement benefits, attendant care benefits, supplemental medical and rehabilitation benefits, non-earner benefits, and funeral and death benefits. It is our top priority to ensure that you get the proper medical treatment and rehabilitation necessary to embark on a path to recovery and regain maximum functionality after the accident.
