Do You Need a Lawyer?
The aftermath of a Los Angeles Metro accident can be difficult to deal with as a victim. You may have suffered debilitating injuries that cost thousands of dollars in treatments, on top of lost wages from being forced to miss work – not to mention significant pain and suffering. Meanwhile, the city’s legal team might be disputing your injury claim or the insurance company could be offering less than you think your injuries deserve.
Hiring a lawyer from Rose, Klein & Marias LLP could save your claim. Rather than settling for less than your injuries are worth, our attorneys can aggressively negotiate for a fair award. We can take care of complicated legal processes in a claim against the City of Los Angeles, giving you peace of mind so you can focus on you. After you hire one of our lawyers, you can sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Why Do Los Angeles Metro Accidents Happen?
In our years of experience, we have connected with top investigators in Southern California to get to the truth of each case. When you come to us with a potential LA Metro accident claim, our lawyers and hired personnel can analyze the case to get to the bottom of who or what might have caused the crash.
- Negligent drivers or operators
- Improper employee training
- Third-party drivers
- Negligent vehicle maintenance
- Dangerous vehicle defects
- Roadway or railway defects
If an LA Metro subway, bus or railway operator caused your accident, the City of Los Angeles could be vicariously liable for your damages. The city could also pose as your defendant if it contributed to the crash directly, such as through inadequate Metro maintenance.
When Should You File?
Act quickly to bring a Los Angeles Metro claim to avoid missing your deadline. While you would generally have two years from the date of an auto accident to file in California, claims against the City of Los Angeles have shorter time limits. The California Tort Claims Act gives plaintiffs just six months from the dates of their accidents to file written notices with the city.
If you fail to file your lawsuit within six months, the courts in Los Angeles could refuse to hear your claim to damages. Always contact an attorney as soon as you can after a serious or debilitating accident involving the LA Metro. Starting a case against the property owner right away, while evidence is still fresh, could strengthen your claim to damages. It could also help you avoid missing an important deadline.
