Bus Collision? Passenger Injury While Riding the ‘T’?

You may be able to collect damages if you were injured as a passenger on a public transportation vehicle, or if your vehicle was struck by a Boston area bus or trolley. But there are special rules and time limits for bringing a claim.

We Must Investigate and File a Claim Promptly
To preserve your rights and maximize your recovery, contact the Law Offices of Steven M. Houde in Wellesley. We have helped clients throughout Greater Boston secure compensation for bus accident injuries. We offer a free initial consultation.

Bus or Trolley Accidents

Our experienced lawyers have brought successful claims against the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority or third parties that caused a bus accident. We have secured settlements for:

  • Occupants of cars struck by a ‘T’ bus
  • Passengers injured in falls while riding (sudden acceleration or stop)
  • Passengers injured when a negligent driver crashed into a bus or trolleybus

We are familiar with the filing deadlines, limitations and specific procedures for bringing claims against the MBTA. We work to get statements from other passengers or witnesses, and may even send accident investigators to prove shoddy maintenance or negligence of the bus/trolley driver. We also work closely with your doctors to demonstrate the extent of injury and costs of recovery.

A Somerville woman suffered serious back injuries when she was hit by a bus while reaching into the trunk of her parked car. We’ve recovered $30,000 from the bus’s insurer and medical benefits from the client’s auto insurer. See more Verdicts and Settlements
