Pittsburgh Public Transit Accident Lawyer

Allegheny County Port Authority Accident Injury Attorney

Attorney for Bus, Train, Taxi, and Incline Accidents in Allegheny County

While many people in Western Pennsylvania drive themselves to work or school every day, thousands of others rely on buses, light rail systems, and other forms of public transportation. Unfortunately, bus and train accidents do occur, and when they do, riders, pedestrians, and occupants of other vehicles can be seriously injured. At Colianni & Leonard LLC, we assist victims who have been injured in bus crashes and other accidents involving public transportation. If you have been hurt, we will work closely with you in pursuit of the compensation you need to put your life back together.

Public Transportation in Western Pennsylvania

The Port Authority of Allegheny County owns and operates most modes of public transportation in and around Pittsburgh, including city buses, light rail, and the iconic "inclines" that take riders up and down Mt. Washington. Due to its nature as a government agency, obtaining compensation from the Port Authority can be difficult following an accident. Attorney Vincent Colianni, however, understands that difficult does not mean impossible. He and his team understand the laws that often protect municipal entities like the Port Authority and will work hard to help you seek justice.

An accident involving a Port Authority bus or train may be investigated by state and federal agencies in addition to local law enforcement, but these entities often have little interest in protecting the rights of injured victims. Instead, such investigations are focused on reducing the possibility of future accidents. At Colianni & Leonard LLC, we understand the importance of cooperating with state and federal authorities, and we know how to use the government's findings in building your case. We will also utilize our own network of investigators and other professionals when necessary to develop a clear picture of what happened.

Wexford Lawyers Protecting the Rights of Accident Victims

The experienced team at Colianni & Leonard LLC realizes that bus and train riders are not the only individuals who can be injured in a public transportation accident. Pedestrians, cyclists, and occupants of other vehicles also may be hurt as the result of a bus or train crash.

In addition to those managed by the Port Authority, other mass-transit options also operate in the region, including Greyhound and similar bus lines, Amtrak, and a number of taxi services. Public and private transportation carriers usually carry substantial insurance policies, but coverages may vary widely. Insurance carriers can also be very difficult to deal with on your own. At our firm, we are not afraid to stand up to insurance companies and their lawyers, and we will zealously protect your best interests throughout the process. We will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your case so that we negotiate a favorable settlement if at all possible. If negotiations fail, however, we are fully prepared to take your case into the courtroom.
