Legal Assistance for People Seriously Injured in King County Metro Bus Accidents

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or disabled in a Metro Transit bus accident, you may have legal questions. The Farber Law Group, a Bellevue personal injury legal practice, may be of assistance to you.

Metro bus accidents can be some of the worst motor vehicle accidents due to the size and weight of the bus in comparison to other motor vehicles that they might hit. If a bus hits a pedestrian, motorcyclist or a bicyclist, the results can be devastating resulting in serious injuries including whiplash, fractures, and crush injuries and injuries and injuries that may even result in death.

In King County, Metro Transit serves more than 1.7 million residents including those living in Seattle, Bellevue, Shoreline and Maple Valley and points in between. Within the Metro Transit system, there are 1,300 buses, trolleys and articulated buses or coaches; King County boasts an annual ridership of 100 million passengers a year. As a large bus system, Seattle Metro is rated to have exemplary safety performance.
