Transportation litigation is a far-reaching section of
legal practice with many complex issues. Our attorneys at MDR
LAW LLC have successfully litigated transportation-related
matters involving common carriers. Common carriers are individuals,
companies or public utilities that are in the business of transporting
passengers for hire. These include buses, trains, airplanes, and taxicabs.
Since such carriers offer their service for pay to the traveling public,
they owe a higher duty of care toward their passengers than the average
private citizen. Because they are paid for their services, they must
take extra precautions for the safe transport of their passengers or
suffer the financial consequences when their failure to do so leads
to a passenger injury.
