Many people use alternative means of transportation every day. For instance, instead of using a car, some people will take taxis, buses, or shuttles to work each day.
Like all other types of transportation, taxis and buses are involved in accidents almost daily. These accidents can often lead to injuries to both the passengers and the drivers.
When passengers are injured in these accidents, they are often unsure whether they can file personal injury lawsuits. In most cases, the answer is yes.
However, the passenger may not be able to file the claim against the driver but against the company that employs the driver. This company may have insurance and be interested in settling the case quickly, but if the company believes the passenger was not traveling in a safe way, then that company may take the case to court.
