Bicycle Accidents Caused By Unused Train Tracks – Lawsuit Info


Bicycle Accidents Caused By Unused Train Tracks – Lawsuit Info Over the past 30 years Cars and other transportation vehicles have become increasingly safer. In contrast however, due to a lack of funding by federal and state agencies, our roads have become more hazardous. Bicycle and motorcycle riders are at the greatest risk of suffering serious injuries due to the failure local, city and state agencies to properly pave over unused railroad, subway and trolley tracks. Liability on such cases can be established if the public-government agency had prior notice of the dangerous roadway conditions due to the presence of unused railway tracks by failed to resolve the issue in a timely manner.
