The Metropolitan Transit System (MTS), which regulates local transportation in San Diego County, runs the city bus and trolley system. The San Diego trolley is a light rail transportation system that is used by many city and county residents on a daily basis. The trolley travels at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour on rails stretching across our busy city streets. When an operator is not paying attention or is negligent, accidents with vehicles or pedestrians can and do happen. If you or a loved one has been involved in a trolley accident, the San Diego accident attorneys at our law office can help you obtain justice and financial compensation for your injuries or loss.
When bringing a claim against a government entity, there are strict statutory time deadlines and procedures that you must follow. Otherwise, your claim will be forever barred and nobody will be held accountable for your injuries or loss. By immediately contacting a San Diego trolley crash attorney at our law office, you will secure competent representation and your rights will be protected. The city is a formidable opponent and there are strict time limits and procedures from bringing a claim against a government entity. Without an experienced attorney on your side you will have little chance of preserving your legal right to be able to hold negligent actors responsible and obtain justice.
The most common cause of crashes is carelessness on the part of trolley operators. Sometimes the carelessness can rise to gross negligence, for example, where an operator is speeding through the busy downtown streets or speeding to pass a yellow light instead of slowing down and stopping. Trolley engineers must realize that they are not operating a train on tracks outside the city limits. They are operating big, heavy trolley trains, than have the destructive force of a train, and they are operating these heavy machines in the middle of busy streets and intersections where vehicles pass and pedestrians may be walking. Train engineers and operators must exercise extreme caution while guiding these huge machines (in relation to the pedestrians and vehicles on the street), through busy city streets.
