Merkel & Cocke, P.A.
The quick and often entertaining service provided by common carriers is much appreciated. There are a variety of transportation services in Mississippi that locals and visitors rely on, from the Marion County Recreational Railroad to the CTA beach trolleys of the Gulf Coast. These cars pose little threat in and of themselves, but when their owners and drivers are careless, they can bring devastating consequences.
Numerous common carrier accident lawsuits have been handled by Merkel & Cocke, P.A. If you’ve been hurt when travelling by air or sea, we can help you get the compensation you need. With over 200 years of combined expertise, our skilled Mississippi accident lawyers can give each client top-tier legal assistance.
Common carriers, sometimes known as mass transit providers, are businesses that routinely transport large numbers of people. Common carriers include airlines, passenger railroads, taxis, and buses. It is the responsibility of these businesses to ensure the security and safety of every passenger. This means that they must adhere to safety regulations and take reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of their customers. To the extent that common carriers fail in this responsibility, they may be held accountable for any injuries sustained by their customers.
Have you ever taken a ride on the beach on the Gulf Coast Ducks or Pullman Rail? Both of these are instances of ubiquitous transport modes. There are five airports in the area, including Jackson-Evers International Airport, Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport, Mid-Delta Regional Airport, Tupelo Regional Airport, and Olive Branch Airport. Fletcher Field can be found in Clarksdale, too.
Do you know who to hold accountable if the driver gets into an accident and you are harmed when you choose the convenience of being able to rent a vehicle via an app on your phone that shows at your door in minutes? Independent contractors like Uber and Lyft drivers are covered by their liability insurance policies, not those of the companies they work for. While hailing an Uber or Lyft is certainly more convenient than waiting for a cab or a bus, it’s crucial to keep in mind that these services are not common carriers and that the people operating the cars you’re hopping into are not licenced chauffeurs.
While train accidents are relatively rare compared to those involving other modes of transportation, it seems like there have been numerous train accidents reported in recent months. The number of train accidents and incidents in the United States increased by 13.1% in 2017 to 1,625, with 8,488 resulting in injuries but 871 ending in fatalities, according to data compiled by the Federal Railroad Administration’s Office of Safety Analysis. People on the train, on the ground, in other cars, and on the railroad itself can all be in danger in the event of an accident. Derailments, head-on collisions between trains, collisions at railroad crossings with automobiles, and railroad accidents are all distinct forms of train accidents.
Even though a passenger on a train has a stronger duty of care than they would have if they were riding a bus since trains are designated common carriers, the injured party still has the burden of proving carelessness on the part of the carrier.
