Every season of the year has unique characteristics that lead to different
types of activities and varying kinds of accidents. For example, the winter
months have road accidents due to inclement weather; spring, summer and
fall will give rise to
motorcycle accidents, and so on.
experienced Kingston travel accident attorneys know that vacationers time their travels for the summer season. All modes
of transportation are used for summer travels; cars, buses, airplanes,
boats, cruise liners, and even trains.
Each of these modes of transportation carry unique risks and recovering
compensation for negligently caused injuries while traveling in each of
these ways requires knowledge of the court system and how it treats litigation
based on different kinds of transportation and their related accidents.
In short, your rights and how litigation is handled will vary depending
on the mode of transportation you were using at the time of your accident.
Airport and Air plane Accidents:
Airplane accidents are rare as compared to motor vehicle accidents but
when they occur, the accident will involve many victims with varying injuries
ranging from scrapes and bruises all the way through to death.
Airports, plane manufacturers, and plan operators have a duty to keep safe
air plane passengers and airport patrons from foreseeable and preventable
harm. Everything these parties do is aimed at keeping the traveler safe;
however, negligence has and will continue to occur.
The experienced Kingston air plane accident attorney has the resolve to
take on regional and national airline companies to defend your rights.
Even if multiple parties are responsible for your harm, the zealous advocate
will include the airport, airline carrier, and even the air plane manufacturer
as defendants in your suit.
Summer Bus Accidents:
Bus accidents are very similar to air plane accidents for several reasons: multiple
victims with varying degrees of injuries; the possibility of multiple
defendants such as the bus manufacturer, bus owner, and bus operator;
and bus accidents are rare as compared to other types of motor vehicle
accidents. Just like plane crashes, bus accidents are largely preventable.
Bus manufacturers, owners, and operators have a duty to use reasonable
care to keep passengers safe. If they breach this duty and such is what
caused the passengers’ injury, then passengers can sue the parties
responsible for their damages.
Bus accidents have been known to be caused by vehicle defects, roadway
defects, improper maintenance, drowsy driving or falling asleep at the
wheel, and even due to inadequate driver training. Since many buses lack
airbags and seat belts, these negligent acts are compounded and injuries
turn out to be much more prevalent and serious.
Train Accident Victim Rights:
Similar to air plane accidents and bus accidents, train accidents are rare
in comparison to common motor vehicle collisions. But again, the nature
of train travel and train accidents will lead to multiple victims and
serious injury in one single event. Hundreds of people can be injured
and or killed in one single train derailment. Claims against train companies
and train manufactures would be almost countless.
Even though train accidents do happen, experienced train accident attorneys
know that such accidents shouldn’t happen. In fact, infinite precautions
are designed to prevent an accident and or derailment; nonetheless, train
accidents still occur.
When the train accident was caused by negligence, the victims can sue the
train operator and or manufacturer depending upon the facts of the accident.
Experienced Kingston personal injury attorneys have the knowledge and
resources to investigate these railroad companies and manufacturers.
Cruise Ship Accidents:
Being out on the open sea surrounded by open water is both beautiful and
frightening at the same time. Numerous summer travelers will disembark
on distant ocean cruises with jubilance. Their excitement is understandable,
but it isn’t innocent excitement. Their exhilaration is predicated
by trust. Specifically, trust that cruise owners, operators, and boat
builders have done their jobs so that passengers will be safe.
Cruise liner accidents are unique in that even if a passenger survives a collision or sinking,
the passenger may still be injured and or killed while drifting in the
open waters. Such is a too real possibility given the difficulty of sea rescues.
