Metro Micro Accident Lawsuit Lawyer – Understanding the Statute of Limitations

Metro’s introduction of their rideshare service is definitely convenient to Metro customers. However, like all other rideshare services, there is always a risk of injury to passengers. In fact, any vehicle on a road (whether it’s a rideshare vehicle, a bus, or a personal vehicle) can be involved in an accident at any time. Most people know what to do after car accidents, in general, but things can be quite confusing as soon as rideshare services are involved.

Were you or a member of your family injured in a Metro Micro accident? If so, you might have grounds to file a lawsuit. That is, you might have grounds to sue Metro for the harm that you suffered during an accident while using their Metro Micro rideshare service. Because Metro is a government entity, things can get a little complex – especially if you do not have the necessary information.

Do I have to File a Government Claim?

Yes, you have to file a government claim against Metro. This is because Metro – officially, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority – is a government entity. This means that you have to first file a government claim, or an administrative claim, directly with Metro before being able to file any civil lawsuit after an accident.

The Statute of Limitations

All claims are subject to a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations essentially determines the total length of time that claimants have to sue; time limits ensure that claims are filed promptly. Most injury claims are subject to a 2-yeear deadline; however, time limits for government claims are much stricter.

Your government claim against Metro has to be filed within 6 months of the accident; Metro will then have 45 days to respond. If Metro responds to your claim with a rejection, then you will have 6 months to file a civil lawsuit. If Metro does not respond to your claim within the allotted time (45 days), then you will have 2 years to file your civil lawsuit. Although it’s possible to get the 2 years to file your claim, you should never assume that you will have so long to file your claim; rather, you should always take action as soon as possible, as government claims are among the most time sensitive.

For more information about the specific length of time that you have to file your Metro Micro accident lawsuit, do not hesitate to contact the experts at our law firm as soon as possible. We will help you file your claim on time.

How to File a Lawsuit against Metro for a Metro Micro Injury

Of course, filing the lawsuit on time is one of the most important factors when it comes to taking legal action after an accident. Besides filing within the statute of limitations, it is important that affected parties act accordingly immediately after their accident and essentially gather the necessary evidence.

After any sort of accident, including a Metro Micro accident, it is important that affected parties do the following:

  • Take photos of all visible injuries
  • Take photos of the entire scene of the accident, including damage to the vehicles involved in the crash
  • Seek medical care for your injuries as soon as possible
  • Speak to witnesses and collect their contact information for later reference
  • Gather the driver’s information and all relevant insurance information
  • Identify surveillance cameras that could have captured the incident (take note of the approximate time of the incident)
  • File an accident report with local police
  • File an accident report with the company involved (in this case, Metro)
  • Gather all relevant medical records
  • Gather all records of lost wages associated with the incident
  • Gather all records of property damage
  • Seek legal assistance with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible

Of course, because your claim is subject to a strict deadline, it is essential that you seek legal assistance as soon as possible. If you are ever unsure of how to proceed or what to do next, you can trust our experts to guide you every step of the way and help you sue Metro to fight for your right to get a fair payout.
