Were You Injured Using Public Or Mass Transportation?
Residents of San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland and other communities throughout Northern California rely heavily on mass transit carriers (“common carriers”) every day to get to work, school and other important appointments.
The Bay Area’s Different Mass Transit Operations
There are many common carriers throughout the East Bay Area:
- BART trains and stations
- Amtrak trains and stations
- AC transit buses
- The San Francisco Bay Ferry
- The Alameda/Oakland Ferry
- The Sausalito Golden Gate Ferry
- Taxi services
- Cable cars
The Responsibility Of Common Carriers
These common carriers are required to make their services safe for riders and operate with a high level of care.
If they don’t, they could be liable under the law for injuries to passengers using their services. They could also be responsible for injuries from assault or other criminal activity on their premises.
