The Washington metropolitan area is a sprawling, densely populated region centered on Washington, DC. The area has an estimated population of nearly 6,000,000, making it the largest metropolitan area in the Southeast and the seventh-largest in the United States. Although the heart of the metro area may be its urban core, there are numerous outlying communities and jurisdictions closely connected to DC. Every morning and every evening, public roads and highways serve as vital arteries that transport thousands of local residents throughout the region, many of whom travel from parts of Maryland and Northern Virginia to work in Washington, DC. At any given time of day, streets are crowded with commuters on foot, bike, rail, bus, and other forms of public transportation. While this hustle and bustle serves as the lifeblood for such a booming region, it also creates a number of dangers for those who venture onto the public roads.
As impressive and advantageous as public transportation has become throughout the years, technology and advancements have not eliminated all risks and dangers. Any form of transportation has its risks and public transportation is no different.
When victims are injured in a public transportation accident that they did not cause – regardless of its nature or type – they have the right to explore their legal options for recovering their damages. As personal injury claims filed on the basis of a bus accident, train accident, or other pubic traffic accident can be complex, subject to various laws and regulations, and disputed aggressively by financially powerful companies and insurance corporations, working with experienced Northern Virginia auto accident attorneys is of the utmost importance.
