The drivers and owners of buses and other means of public transportation are subject to the same laws and regulations as other drivers and car owners.
If you are injured while travelling on an Ottawa bus you may be entitled to medical and other benefits. If the bus you were travelling on was involved in a collision with another object (such as a vehicle, light post, or barrier wall), you will likely have benefits available to you through the City of Ottawa’s insurance coverage.
Even if your injuries were not caused as a result of the bus colliding with another object, you may still be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries, including loss of earnings, and medical expenses.
The lawyers at McNally Gervan have represented many people involved in serious bus and OC Transpo accidents, including the 2013 collision between a bus and a Via Rail commuter train. Our lawyers understand the system and are here to help accident victims get the support they need to get back on track and the compensation they deserve. Compensation for serious bus and OC Transpo accidents often includes damages for pain and suffering, past and future losses of income, and past and ongoing medical and rehabilitation costs.
