Specialized transit services, such as paratransit, dial-a-ride, and senior transportation, play a crucial role in providing mobility to individuals who may not have access to regular public transportation. However, accidents involving these smaller transit services can still occur, leaving passengers with serious injuries and mounting medical bills. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a specialized transit service in California, it’s essential to understand your rights and the steps you need to take to secure the compensation you deserve.

At Kash Legal Group, our experienced personal injury attorney, Jonathan Kashani, has helped numerous clients navigate the complex process of filing a claim against transit authorities and smaller specialized transit services. In this article, we’ll discuss the unique aspects of these cases and how our firm can help you achieve the best possible outcome.

Injured in a Specialized Transit Service Accident? Here’s What You Need to Know

Understanding California’s Government Claim Requirements

When pursuing a claim against a transit authority or specialized transit service, it’s crucial to follow the procedures outlined in the California Tort Claims Act. This act requires that you submit a written claim to the appropriate government entity within six months of the accident date [1]. Failing to meet this deadline could result in your claim being denied, leaving you unable to seek compensation for your injuries.

Attorney Jonathan Kashani and his team at Kash Legal Group can help you navigate the complexities of the government claim process, ensuring that your claim is properly completed and submitted in a timely manner. We’ll work diligently to gather the necessary evidence, including accident reports, witness statements, and medical records, to build a strong case on your behalf.

Establishing Liability in Specialized Transit Service Accidents

To secure compensation for your injuries, it’s essential to demonstrate that the transit authority or specialized transit service was negligent in causing the accident. California case law, such as Bonanno v. Central Contra Costa Transit Authority (2003), has established that these entities can be held liable for injuries caused by the negligent operation of their vehicles [2].

Our personal injury attorney, Jonathan Kashani, has the knowledge and experience to investigate your accident thoroughly and identify the factors that contributed to your injuries. Whether the accident was caused by driver error, inadequate vehicle maintenance, or other negligent actions, we’ll work tirelessly to hold the responsible parties accountable and secure the compensation you deserve.

Maximizing Your Compensation with Kash Legal Group

Accidents involving specialized transit services can result in significant injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord damage, and traumatic brain injuries. These injuries can lead to substantial medical expenses, lost wages, and ongoing pain and suffering. At Kash Legal Group, we understand the devastating impact these accidents can have on your life, and we’re committed to fighting for the maximum compensation available in your case.

Attorney Jonathan Kashani will work closely with medical experts and other professionals to fully assess the extent of your injuries and the long-term impact they will have on your life. We’ll negotiate with the transit authority’s insurance company to secure a fair settlement that covers all of your damages, including future medical expenses and lost earning capacity. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we’re prepared to take your case to trial and fight for your rights in court.
