The accident attorneys at Skousen, Gulbrandsen & Patience can do just that.

Who is Responsible if I am Injured in a Mesa Light Rail Accident?

While significant improvements have been made to the traffic signals around the light rail, accidents can still happen. Whether the result of inattentive drivers, faulty rails or trains, operator negligence, derailing, or dangerous intersections, it can be difficult to determine who, or what, is at fault. If you are involved in a light rail accident, you need an attorney that can analyze the liability aspects of the case, hire experts to inspect the train, analyze evidence, and make a case for your compensation.

Arizona law cites that you only have 6 months, or 180 days, from the date of the light rail accident to submit a claim against the city or state (ARS-12-821.01). Because the time frame for making a light rail accident claim is so much shorter than the time frame for an accident with another driver, you need to move fast. Get in touch with our Mesa light rail accident attorneys right away to see whether you have a case and start the investigation process.

When to Hire A Light Rail Attorney

As the Phoenix Metropolitan light rail continues to expand, drivers need to be more careful than ever. From unfamiliar signals and an increase in pedestrian traffic, to neglect and equipment malfunctions, the growth of the rail system presents more risks to those on the road. When an accident involving the light rail does occur, it takes an experienced team of investigators and attorneys to sort out the cause and make sure justice is served. Because it can be so difficult to determine fault in a light rail accident, you need an attorney on your side if you are involved in an accident on or with the Valley metro.

At Skousen, Gulbrandsen & Patience, PLC in Mesa, AZ, you will find attorneys who are committed to offering you dedicated representation for your light rail accident. In some cases, the rail operators may be responsible for inattentiveness or neglect, while in other cases, the fault lies with motorists that did not acknowledge traffic signals, stop lights, and warning bells. In other cases, the cause of the accident may not be clear at all. Let us investigate who is actually at fault for the accident so we can hold them accountable for your sustained injuries and other related losses.

Call Now to Discuss Your Case

If you have recently been in a light rail accident, it’s important to take immediate action. Because these cases involve a government entity, the deadline to file a claim is much shorter than other cases and the last thing you want is to miss important details in your haste to get the case in on time. In most cases where the victim attempts to file paperwork themselves, the claim is dismissed ꟷ usually because it was missing critical details. That's where our attorneys come in. Once we have requested the necessary legal documents, we work quickly to file your claim, ensuring that you have every opportunity to win your case and get proper retribution. We will not hesitate to go against a government entity, especially if that entity has caused you harm. We will hold them responsible as we would any individual motorist who has caused an accident because of negligence.

Contact Skousen, Gulbrandsen & Patience LLC for a free initial consultation. We serve all of the Phoenix Valley and can help you get the compensation you deserve for your light rail accident.
