Plane, Train, Bus and Other Commercial Transportation Accidents
When someone is involved in an accident with a commercial transportation vehicle, one of the vehicles was a city bus, school bus, tour bus, commuter train, subway, airplane, trolley, or another vehicle. Many specific regulations are governing these types of vehicles far different from those that regulate regular vehicles. They are larger and heavier, particularly when they are loaded with people or property.

Injuries Sustained in commercial accidents
Passengers on trains and buses typically are not required to wear seatbelts. When one of these vehicles collides with another vehicle or some other object, there are almost always injuries, many severe, and some resulting in fatal injuries and death. There can be an accident involving a pedestrian. All the additional weight increases the force exerted by the commercial vehicle. Due to the weight factor, even if seat belts are worn, an impact can be much more dynamic.
Some of the more common injuries inflicted include:
Accident Investigations in Commercial Transportation Cases
While it is not usual for an insurance representative to arrive immediately at the scene of a car versus car accident, it is very common in an accident involving a bus, train, etc. Businesses or city governments usually control and own these commercial vehicles. As such, they have many resources available to them. An investigation will often involve federal agencies, as these are the regulating authority for commercial carriers. Gathering all of the facts, interviewing victims and witnesses can take place long before the victim has recovered from any injuries.
Due to the high degree of exposure, the insurance company will work very hard to settle all claims as soon as possible. In their pursuit to settle the claims fast, you may be at risk of not getting compensated fully. Any victim of such an accident should consult an experienced attorney before signing any forms or accepting any money from the company or city or county.
Sovereign immunity is a term that means some government agencies are protected in that there is a limit on how much they can pay to people who are injured in an accident. There are some circumstances where immunity is waived, allowing an accident victim to recover a larger settlement. This is crucial, especially when there is a wrongful death or the victim suffered catastrophic injuries.
