Were you injured in an accident involving public transportation? In Louisville, thousands of people rely on our public transportation system (TARC – Transit Authority of River City)– and public school buses (Jefferson County Public Schools– JCPS) to get to and from work and school. Unfortunately, a portion of those thousands of passengers that rely on our public transportation are eventually involved in a public transportation accident.
If you or your child are involved in a TARC or JCPS accident, make sure the police make a report, and be sure to give the reporting officer all of your basic information. If you are injured, do not hesitate to seek proper medical attention. In Kentucky, you may be eligible for No Fault benefits through existing insurance or through the Kentucky Assigned Claim Program. If you meet certain requirements, you may be eligible for up to $10,000 in coverage for medical bills and loss of income.
