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.
