Knoxville Area Transit (KAT) Injury Lawyer
In Knoxville, there are several residents who are unable to use regular fixed-route buses. For these individuals, KAT provides a Paratransit LIFT service. These vehicles can be used by reservation to get individuals to necessary appointments. Unfortunately, these individuals often lack the muscle control or strength to protect themselves in the event of reckless driving or accidents. Injuries can be caused by several conditions, including:
- Not properly strapping people into a seat
- Not securing a wheelchair
- Aggressively changing lanes or turning, which causes passengers to fall
- Defective or insufficient safety equipment
- Unprotected sharp or hard edges
- Broken seats or safety straps
If you or a loved one has been injured in a KAT-related accident, we encourage you to contact the Law Offices of Ogle, Elrod and Baril, PLLC. Our attorneys can guide you through the legal process in an efficient and effective manner.
