With the shear amount of GCRTA buses on our roadways, crashes happen often. Sometimes it’s the fault of another driver, and there are many times when it is the GCRTA Operator at fault. Yesterday on August 24, 2022, in one crash alone on Euclid Avenue in Cleveland twenty RTA bus riders were possibly injured in a crash involving a Health Line GCRTA Bus. While the details of the crash and the investigation are still pending, those injured passengers should seek legal counsel.
GCRTA is a political subdivision, i.e. a government owned entity. They are certain laws which are very intricate involving making claims against a political subdivision. An attorney can help ensure that your claim is properly brought against the GCRTA, or the at-fault party within the parameters of Ohio Law. A Cleveland bus accident attorney can also ensure that the video and audio is preserved from the bus to aide in the investigation of who is at fault for causing the crash. In our experience, we have had cases where the GCRTA operator has denied being at fault for the crash, and then have been proved to be solely at fault after a close and careful review of the various camera angles that can be found on the buses.
