If you or someone you love has been injured in a BART, Muni or Caltrain accident, you need experienced Bay Area counsel. At Needham Kepner & Fish LLP, we understand that train accident cases are complex because they involve government entities.
Our attorneys have decades of experience successfully representing train accident victims throughout Sacramento, San Francisco and San Jose.
Causes of Mass Transit Accidents in California
Our firm’s experienced mass transit accident attorneys have observed that many injuries have the following causes:
- Human error: Examples of employee negligence that can cause train accidents include fatigue, distraction and intoxication.
- Lack of maintenance: If a train company fails to perform routine maintenance, cars and tracks can break down and lead to accidents.
- Mechanical failure: Sometimes the blame in a Caltrain, Muni or BART train accident rests on the vehicle manufacturer. Train car defects that go undetected can affect virtually any part of a train system and cause serious injuries.
Our Attorneys Also Have Experience With Taxi Accidents
In addition to helping train accident victims, the lawyers at Needham Kepner & Fish LLP have considerable experience representing clients who have been injured in taxi accidents. We investigate your case and determine whether negligence by the cab company and driver caused you injuries.
