The San Diego Trolley is one of the oldest transit systems operating in southern California. Over the years, it has provided public transportation for San Diego residents and visitors. Unfortunately, many residents and visitors have also suffered serious and fatal injuries in trolley accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trolley accident, a personal injury attorney at CaseyGerry can help.
After a trolley accident, recovering compensation for your injuries and damages can be difficult, especially when liability is disputed and you do not know the cause of the accident. Several parties may be liable for your accident, depending on how and why the accident occurred, but those parties rarely take responsibility for resulting injuries and damages.

As mentioned above, several parties may be liable for trolley accident injuries and damages. The Metropolitan Transit System (‘MTS’) operates the San Diego trolley system, and it is responsible for safely operating and transporting San Diego residents and visitors. When trolley accidents are caused by operator error, negligent trolley maintenance, or poorly maintained tracks, the operator and the MTS may be liable for your injuries.
Sometimes trolley accidents involve collisions with other vehicles on the road. Other times injuries are caused by sudden and unexpected stops to avoid a collision. Trolley incidents may also include obstructions on the tracks and defective trolley parts. Depending on how and why the accident or near-miss happened, automobile drivers, trolley operators, the MTS, or other negligent parties may be responsible for the accident.
