Bus Accidents Are Devastating
King County is ranked as one of the most dangerous counties in the country when it comes to public transportation accidents. King County Metro and Sound Transit contribute to this tragically high accident rating. Whether these accidents are caused by poor bus maintenance, improper screening of potential drivers and operators, insufficient training of drivers and operators, or ineffective management and enforcement of rules and policies, the results are the same: pedestrians and the motoring public suffer severe injury and damage. Not surprising considering a pedestrian or even a motor vehicle are at a severe disadvantage when up against a massive double-tall or double-length metro bus. As a result of this imbalance, public transportation companies need to be held to a higher standard of care when it comes to their operation on public streets. Issaquah Law Group has the knowledge and the experience to hold them to this higher standard on behalf of our clients.
