Chelsea, MA MBTA Injuries and Why They Occur
Many of the residents of Chelsea use the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to commute into Boston for work. Often referred to as the “T,” the transit system runs throughout the greater Boston area and consists of buses, ferries, trains, and the subway.
With over a million people utilizing some form of the MBTA every day, it’s not surprising that accidents resulting in injury occur frequently. The owners and operators of the MBTA are obligated to ensure that all passengers arrive safely to their destinations. However, accidents often occur due to unsafe property conditions, recklessness, and other forms of negligence.
MBTA injuries, such as slip-and-falls, can occur before a person even sets foot on a train. It is the responsibility to ensure that any potential hazards are quickly addressed and that there is clear signage to warn people of possible dangers.
The following are some possible scenarios that have lead to injuries:
- Slip-and-falls on platforms, escalators, or stairs
- Malfunctioning turnstile
- Electrocution from contact with tracks
- Falling due to improper guardrails
- Defective train doors
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed, don’t delay in contacting a Chelsea personal injury lawyer. There is a statute of limitations on filing a claim or lawsuit against the MBTA. The sooner that you contact us, the sooner we can build a solid case and pursue financial compensation for you.
Quite a few residents of Chelsea rely on MBTA buses to take them safely to work or wherever else they need to go. The MBTA bus system is huge, providing rides to around a million people every single day. While the bus system provides a valuable service to Massachusetts residents, there are many bus accidents each year that injure or kill hundreds of passengers.
Common causes of Massachusetts bus accidents include:
- Driver distraction (texting, eating, talking on the phone, etc.)
- Poor weather conditions
- Maintenance violations
- Defective equipment
- Unsafe property conditions
Tragically, bus accident victims may sustain injuries causing severe or lasting harm. If you have been injured in a Massachusetts bus accident, a personal injury attorney with Jason Stone Injury Lawyers can help you recover compensation for your losses.
We typically think of ferries as being a relatively safe form of travel. While not as common as traffic collisions, accidents happen on the water, just as they do on land. A ferry may collide with another boat, crash into a dock or other fixed object, or even capsize as a result of an equipment malfunction.
Ferry accidents may be the result of operator error, poor weather conditions, defective equipment, or poor maintenance. If you were injured in a ferry accident, you shouldn’t have to face the physical, emotional, and financial burden alone. The personal injury lawyers at our law office can help you. Call Jason Stone Injury Lawyers today at (800) 577-5188 to schedule a free case consultation.
Every day, trains transport thousands of people across Massachusetts, including many residents of Chelsea. Train accidents aren’t as common as car, truck, or motorcycle crashes, but they’re usually catastrophic when they do occur.
Train accidents are often caused by human error or equipment malfunction. A train crash can affect more than just an individual or family. A train may be carrying hundreds of people and can have a devastating impact on an entire community. If you were injured or a loved one was killed in an MBTA train accident, contact our Chelsea personal injury lawyers as soon as possible.
