The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) has responsibility for ensuring passenger safety while loading, riding and unloading from its public buses. If you were injured in an accident or by the negligence or misconduct of another passenger while utilizing public bus transportation anywhere in Utah, you have the right to claim damages from the UTA.
As soon as possible after seeking medical help for your injuries, talk to an attorney at the personal injury law firm of Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, in Provo. Our attorneys bring together more than 50 years of litigation experience to protect the rights of people hurt because of another party's negligence. We have a successful record of recovering full and fair compensation from government entities such as the UTA.
If you are considering filing an injury claim against the UTA, you have a limited amount of time to submit paperwork notifying it of your intent to file. It does not mean you have to actually file the lawsuit in the short amount of time. The deadline can vary, but generally, claimants have a year to submit special paperwork notifying the government or they forfeit the right to seek further damages. It is important to see us as soon as possible after your bus accident. We will begin drafting your case immediately.
