Maryland’s Bus Accident Laws
The local laws that will affect your personal injury claim depend on a lot more factors than you may think. The type of bus you were riding – public, private, or school bus, for example, will determine the types of laws Maryland has in place for safe operation. If you are hurt on a train instead, there can be jurisdiction overlaps and confusion over who can be held responsible.
A personal injury attorney familiar with public transportation accidents can help you weave through all the red tape and hold the right parties responsible.
- If the bus is run by a government agency, you typically have 3 years to file a claim.
- If the bus is run by the state, you typically have 1 year to file a claim.
- You must clearly prove negligence on behalf of the common carrier or driver.
Can I File A Claim As A Pedestrian?
Pedestrians can be hurt getting on or off the bus, waiting for a train, or while entering, exiting, or waiting at a train depot. We can gather evidence to determine whether you, as a pedestrian or bicyclist, have a case. Inadequate station security, slips and falls on icy stairs, and drivers who pull away before you are on or off the bus can all result in serious injury.
