Buses run by the Detroit Department of Transportation (DOT) and Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation (SMART) are a common sight at the Rosa Parks bus terminal and throughout the greater Detroit area, where public transportation is popular among residents, tourists and commuters alike. While being involved in a crash while using the city's many transportation options might be the last thing on your mind, accidents do happen - and these accidents often leave victims with serious injuries. Find out how a Detroit bus accident attorney can help protect your rights. Contact Fraser & Souweidane today to discuss your legal options.
Public transportation can become hazardous in Detroit due to a number of factors, including negligence on the part of both the driver and the company that hired the driver. Overworked, fatigued drivers could fall asleep at the wheel. Bus drivers may become distracted by cell phones. Public transportation workers may even cause an impaired driver accident after operating their vehicle under the influence of alcohol. Bus companies, too, may be at fault if they've failed to properly maintain their vehicles or document known safety issues.
Here are a few of the Detroit public transportation options that can become deadly if involved in a traffic accident of any kind:
- SMART bus routes
- DDOT bus routes
- Detroit People Mover light rail
- AMTRAK Wolverine Line
- Airport shuttles going to or from Detroit Metropolitan Airport
