Andover Public Transportation Accident Lawyers

Every day, hundreds of thousands of people in Massachusetts entrust public transportation providers such as the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) to get them safely to their destination. Unfortunately, serious accidents can occur while riding or sharing the roadways with mass transit vehicles such as buses, subways, trolleys and taxicabs.

If you have been in an accident involving a public transportation vehicle, it is important to contact an experienced lawyer immediately. You have only two years from the date of your accident to file a claim. Additionally, because mass transit entities are governed by the state, there are different rules and requirements for filing claims against them.

At Connell & Foresta, we are intimately familiar with the laws that govern the public transportation system. We will help you take the right steps to ensure that you receive the compensation you need and deserve. For a free consultation with one of our experienced Andover public transportation accident attorneys, call 978-794-7900.
