Take Action Against The Government For Negligence
We’re not in the business of suing the government just because it’s the government. We’re in the business of representing people in need. And if you’ve been injured in an accident involving government property, you might be eligible for compensation.
The cases we handle often include the following Texas transit authorities:
- VIA Metropolitan Transit: operates bus lines, a vanpool commuter service, and historic downtown streetcars in San Antonio. A light rail project is also in the works, which would fall under the public transportation category.
- Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority: operates bus lines, light rail, vanpooling and carpooling services in Austin.
- Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART): operates bus lines, light rail, and rideshare services.
- Fort Worth Transportation Authority (“the T”): operates bus lines, vanpools and carpools.
In addition, the transit authorities in Dallas and Fort Worth jointly operate the Trinity Railway Express, a commuter rail service that runs between the two cities. And there are numerous other local government transit authorities, besides those in San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas-Fort Worth, that operate bus and rail lines.
Because we’ve been representing injured people since 1990, we know how to prosecute personal injury cases against local government authorities and their employees. Accidents involving government property are not as common as other types of accidents, but they happen with surprising regularity, and negligence is negligence no matter who caused the accident.
