You may be able to receive compensation by filing an insurance claim against
the carrier or pursuing legal action. Either way, the process of recovering
damages from a public carrier is complicated, and you’ll definitely need an
experienced personal injury lawyer
like Attorney Joe Brad Brock to
The first thing to keep in mind is that, to collect
compensation for injuries suffered in a public carrier accident, you must prove
the carrier was responsible for your injuries. Laws and regulations hold
public carriers to high standards of safety and passenger care. Public carriers
take these laws and regulations seriously. Thus, proving your carrier violated
them and caused your injuries, can be a real uphill battle. So immediately
after you’ve been involved in a common carrier accident, you should track all
evidence that supports your injury claim.
Photos of the accident scene, medical records of your injuries
and their treatment, witness statements, police reports, and any other documents
relevant to your injuries are vital to your case.
If you work with Attorney Joe Brad Brock, you don’t have to
gather everything on your own. He’ll assist you at every step.
Some common carriers require specific notice of your
injuries within a certain time period. Usually, the act of purchasing a ticket
constitutes your agreement to comply with these requirements.
If the public carrier with which you’re contesting is owned
by the federal, state, county, or city government, you may be required to notify
not only the carrier but also the appropriate government entity of your
injuries within a specific time period before you can file a legal claim.
Sometimes the time period allowed is very short – within 30 or 60 days. Joe Brad
will determine whether notification is required, who should be notified, and what,
if any, time limits apply.
Another thing that’s typical with public carrier accidents is
an investigation by insurance and legal professionals. During the course of
your public carrier insurance claim or lawsuit, you’ll be required to speak
with parties representing the carrier. Anything you say can be used to diminish
or deny your claim, so – again – it’s best to have an experienced personal
injury attorney like Joe Brad representing you. He’ll manage your case from
start to finish, make sure your interests are being served, and keep you
in the loop throughout the process so you can make informed decisions.
Don’t try to collect damages for personal injuries received in
a public carrier accident by yourself. Instead, see that you get the
compensation to which you’re entitled by doing what so many other smart people
