Buses, railroads, taxis, cable cars, trolleys, light rail vehicles and other forms of public transportation are called common carriers. As such, they owe passengers, pedestrians and the public at large a higher duty of care than a licensed driver who is not involved in commercial transportation. In Florida, pedestrians are at risk of injury by all forms of public transportation. Drivers and operators of public transportation cause accidents, injuries and, sometimes, wrongful deaths because of their negligence. Success in pedestrian accident claims provides our clients with the compensation they are entitled to receive by law. It also serves a broader purpose: Large verdict or settlements encourage other common carriers to behave more responsibly toward pedestrians and the public at large.
