Obtaining Fair Compensation for Train Crash and Bus Accident Victims Since 1988

For accidents involving Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA), Brockton Area Transit Authority, Pioneer Valley Transit Authority, Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority and Martha’s Vineyard Regional Transit Authority vehicles or vessels — call the law firm of Gillis & Bikofsky, P.C. and put our decades of experience with public transportation accidents to work for you.

Hotel shuttles, taxis and charter buses are all good examples of public transportation that is NOT operated by a government authority. These claims are handled in much the same way as accidents involving large trucks and other commercial vehicles. If you’ve been injured in a shuttle, taxi or charter bus accident — we’ll explore all potential sources of liability in our efforts to maximize your compensation.

Unique Issues Involving Public Transportation Accidents

In Massachusetts, injury and wrongful death claims resulting from a bus accident, a commuter train crash or from any type of mishap involving a government-run public transportation system are governed by a unique set of statutes. Our attorneys, each of whom has at least 20 years of experience, are well-aware of these laws, their pitfalls and of the very specific steps and requirements involved in filing a claim.

We also understand the unique state-administered funding structure that must be navigated in order to obtain settlement money or verdict awards. Beginning July 1 of each year, a pool of money is created with which to pay out claims. Money goes out on a first come, first serve basis. When it runs out, remaining claimants face the possibility of having to wait until the following year to get paid. To us, this is unacceptable and we are careful to plan our cases with this in mind.
