We all need to be even more vigilant with this new introduction on our roads. Not only do we have to adapt our driving to include the new lanes and crossings but we must also remember our defensive driving skills because sometimes it might just come down to “electronic failure”. Remember, there are no 2nd chances for an injured person, no matter what the circumstances. The best course of action is to drive defensively and keep a lookout for roadway hazards. This is the best way to avoid accidents and stay safe.
However, in the event an accident occurred by way of the malfunctioning of the light rail, or due to another circumstance involving the fault of a city, county or state, it is important to know that the time for bringing a claim for damages against the responsible governmental entity is considerably shorter than an accident with another vehicle. Should such an accident happen to you or a loved one, please do not hesitate or delay in seeking legal advice from an attorney experienced in this area of the law.
