Have You Been Injured in a Common Carrier Accident?
Hundreds of people are seriously injured every year either by or on public transportation, also known as common carriers. Common carriers are companies or systems that carry passengers as part of a business operation open to the public.
Common carriers are required by law to use the highest degree of care and vigilance to ensure the safety of passengers — and the public. This is a much higher duty than that required of a normal motorist, who is required only to use “reasonable care.” Common carrier vehicles must be safe and fit to transport passengers.
