A Collision Involving a Bus and Train is Bound to Have Serious Injuries
Thousands of people use public transportation throughout California each and every day. Many of them rely on public transportation to help them get to and from work, to get their shopping done, and to get where they need to go. For these people, if public transportation wasn’t an option, they would have a serious issue getting anywhere.
That said, no matter how helpful public transportation in general is, it has its own problems. Humans are operating these vehicles and we all know there’s such a thin as human error. Mistakes are made. The vehicles themselves don’t have a 100% safety record. They can break down or otherwise experience mechanical failure. When they do, a lot of people can get hurt.

There are two main unpredictable issues with public transportation
A lot of different vehicles can be used for public transportation. They include passenger buses, trains (including subways), taxis, shuttle buses, and every other type of commercial vehicle. The type of public transportation used depends largely on the area in which a commuter lives.
No matter what type of vehicle a person rides, if they are involved in an injury simply while getting to work, or to and from anywhere else, the injuries can be catastrophic. Likewise, there may be numerous people or entities that are ultimately responsible for the accident. They include the driver of the vehicle, a mechanic who worked on the vehicle, the company that owned the vehicle, or even a government entity in charge of the vehicle.
