Some common carriers require specific notice of your injuries within a certain time period. Usually, the act of purchasing a ticket constitutes your agreement to comply with these requirements.
If the public carrier with which you’re contesting is owned by the federal, state, county, or city government, you may be required to notify not only the carrier but also the appropriate government entity of your injuries within a specific time period before you can file a legal claim. Sometimes the time period allowed is very short – within 30 or 60 days. Joe Brad will determine whether notification is required, who should be notified, and what, if any, time limits apply.
Another thing that’s typical with public carrier accidents is an investigation by insurance and legal professionals. During the course of your public carrier insurance claim or lawsuit, you’ll be required to speak with parties representing the carrier. Anything you say can be used to diminish or deny your claim, so – again – it’s best to have an experienced personal injury attorney like Joe Brad representing you. He’ll manage your case from start to finish, make sure your interests are being served, and keep you in the loop throughout the process so you can make informed decisions.
