Many people depend on mass transit to carry them to and from work, school, sporting events, shopping, doctor appointments, and more. A business or person that transports passengers for a fee such as buses, taxis, trains, planes, subways, and others are called common carriers.
Georgia law regulates common carriers and requires them to ensure that their passengers avoid injuries. However, injuries can still take place. When the transportation vehicle is not maintained or the driver is negligent and fails to obey traffic signals, speeds, or falls asleep, the passengers are at risk.
Public transportation systems like railroads and aviation are the most preferred modes of transportation, as they are the safest among other modes of transportation. But, unfortunately, these modes also encounter mishaps, and, as a result, the passengers get injured. If a person gets injured because of the negligent conduct of another person, then one can file a case against them.
In a railroad or aviation accident, the victim has to face various challenges, as he/she would be one among many. It becomes very difficult to stand against a huge corporation while involved in a mass tort. The validity of the case might get lost. Huge corporations are backed by huge legal firms, and they are aware of all the legal loopholes. These situations can be really challenging.
