Subway Accidents

More than one million people use the state of Massachusetts’ mass transit system, including more than 600,000 subway passengers. The subway system, one of the nation’s largest, is operated by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. However, it’s operated under a tremendous amount of debt.


As a result, many improvement projects cannot be funded properly, causing parts of the subway system to remain outdated and in need of repairs. Directly tied to these improvement needs are the health and safety of subway riders. Do you feel your safety has been compromised as a result of using the subway system in Massachusetts? Common claims against MBTA include:

  • Subway accidents
  • Stairwell and walkway accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Platform injuries
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Entrapment injuries
  • Elevator/escalator injuries
  • Evacuation injuries
  • Negligent security
  • Assault or robbery
  • Premises liability claims


Have you been involved in or experienced any of the above scenarios as a subway user? The Law Office of Frank Fernandez is experienced in processing claims for Massachusetts subway passengers. Contact us today to see if you’re eligible to recover any damages from MBTA, such as medical costs and pain and suffering.


Bus Accidents

Have you been involved in a bus accident? Without knowing your rights, you can potentially miss out on the rightful recovery of damages caused from the incident.


In the state of Massachusetts, buses can be owned and operated by a variety of parties: the state, a county, a city, a government branch or a private company. Each operator is responsible for ensuring its drivers operate the vehicles in a safe manner, free of distraction. However, this is often not the case.


Bus accidents can occur due to the driver not being alert on the road or using substances that affect his or her mental and physical ability. Poor road conditions can also cause an accident. In this case, the state, city or county may be at fault for not properly maintaining the roadway.


Evaluating all of these circumstances is important in determining if you’re eligible to file a bus accident claim. With sufficient proof of injury or pain and suffering caused by an accident, your medical costs, missed income and additional damages could be covered under Massachusetts state law. However, the law states that you must take action within a certain timeframe after the accident for your case to be presented.


Don’t wait to contact the Law Office of Frank Fernandez for your free consultation. We’ll be happy to review your situation and help you gather the necessary evidence. As always, we recommend you carefully document your medical operations and costs related to a bus accident.


School Bus Accidents

Children throughout the state of Massachusetts rely on school vehicles to get to and from school every day. Even when these vehicle operators might take every precaution necessary to keep children safe, accidents unfortunately can happen. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration estimated that more than 10,000 children are injured in a bus accident every year (more than 1,200 fatalities since 2003)*.


Oftentimes, the reason for a school transportation-related accident is a collision with a stationary object (such as a telephone pole or curb) or an overturned bus. Other causes include a child falling from the bus or the driver being distracted or under the influence of substances.


While many of these incidents result in only minor injury, others can result in serious injury or death. In any of these horrifying circumstances, getting your child proper medical care should be your chief concern. As soon as your child is receiving care, you’ll need someone on your side to help you receive the proper compensation for accident-caused damages.


To be eligible to have any medical costs and pain and suffering damages covered, don’t wait to speak with the Law Office of Frank Fernandez. As an expert in bus accident claims in the state of Massachusetts, we’ll help you determine the compensation you can rightfully collect as required by law.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
