Hit or Injured in an Accident With a Houston METRO Bus?
What Should I Do If I Got Hit By A METRO Bus in Houston?
In Houston, METRO is the public transportation system. METRO buses and trains run routes throughout the city to help people get where they are going. The buses and trains are operated by real people, who sometimes make poor decisions that result in vehicle crashes, injuries, or worse…
If you are hit by a METRO bus/train or injured as a passenger, you only have 90 days to make a claim with METRO or you might lose your ability to be compensated for your injuries. Follow these rules to make sure you don’t lose the ability to get compensation for a bus driver’s negligence:
- Make a claim with METRO as soon as possible. Get claim form from the bus driver or go to the METRO website to obtain the proper forms.
- As always, TAKE PICTURES! The more pictures and video you have of the incident, the easier it will be to describe what happened.
- Write down the Location of the crash, the Bus Number, and the Route Number.
- Get the driver’s name and note the time of the crash.
