People living in Toronto and its many surrounding communities rely on the Toronto Transit Commission, which is the city’s main public transportation venue. Whether they use it for commuting purposes or other reasons, they expect to arrive at their destination safely. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Although it is a rare occurrence, BLPC Law has recovered a considerable amount of compensation on behalf of clients who were injured in public transit accidents.
Reasons for the Accident
We realize that bus, street, sideways, and subway drivers are not perfect. However, there are times when those accidents happen due to a number of contributing factors, such as:
In some cases, these public transit accidents were serious enough that our clients needed extensive medical care, and long-term rehabilitation in order to recover sufficiently, and restore their quality of life. While in some cases, the injuries have rendered them immobile or caused partial to full disability. As their legal representative, we ensured that their personal injury claim would be handled in a timely fashion. Our desire is that they experienced the best possible outcome in each of their cases.
When clients suffer from serious public transit accidents, this usually creates a financial hardship for them, as well as their families, because there are a lot of out-of-pocket expenses; including ever-mounting medical expenses and lost earnings. Sometimes public transit drivers make mistakes and an accident occurs. BLPC Law has handled numerous personal injury claims because these individuals were exhausted, fatigued, or over-worked. In other cases, they simply didn’t care, got lazy, or were negligent.
When any of these factors are involved, TTC passengers are at risk of serious injury. From broken bones or chronic pain and suffering, to devastating, life-altering injuries such as lost limbs and traumatic brain injuries; we have seen it all. Fortunately for our clients, our personal injury lawyers have the expertise and the tenacity to ensure that they are compensated for their injuries, and can have a better quality of life afterwards. Under tort laws, we can help you get justice.

As we mentioned above, the results can be financially devastating for the victims of these types of accidents.
