Personal Injury Claims Against the MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority)
The MBTA is subject to many personal injury claims each and every year due to the high number of passengers they transport every day. As an MBTA accident lawyer I have successfully handled many of these claims over the years. Many personal injury claims against the MBTA are for injuries sustained on buses, trains, and injuries that occur on MBTA propery (slip, trip and fall accidents). The MBTA oftentimes is subject to so many personal injury claims each year that they often run out of money to pay on these claims. Claimants therefore usually have to wait long periods of time before they see their settlement monies from the MBTA.
It is important to know that personal injury claims against the MBTA are governed by specific procedural requirements. First, there is only a two (2) year statute of limitations governing claims made against the MBTA. Second, notice of your injuries must be sent to the MBTA as soon as possible after your accident. I highly recommend you send such notice via certified mail, return receipt requested. If you do not send the proper notice within the relevant time-frame, your claim may be rendered moot.
Therefore, please be aware that personal injury claims against the MBTA are governed by quirky procedural rules that must be strictly followed.
