When you entrust your safety to the operator of a train, bus, or airplane, you are assuming that your ride will be an uneventful one. Statistically speaking, that assumption is often accurate, but human error is always lurking, and mass casualty incidents (MCI) can be catastrophic. When accidents occur that result in dozens of injuries or fatalities, not every law firm has the resources to take action. At Shea & Shea – A Professional Law Corporation, we have an experienced team and a sprawling network of professionals to rely on. If you or a loved one was involved in an MCI, call our San Jose office today at (408) 292-2434.
What Qualifies As An MCI?
At a fundamental level, an MCI is an event that overwhelms the resources of local medical facilities.
In densely populated areas like the San Francisco Bay Area, an MCI can strike in several ways, including:
- An aviation accident such as a plane or helicopter crash
- A bus accident
- A BART or Caltrans derailment or collision
- A car accident involving several vehicles
When an MCI occurs, the damage and injuries are often significant. Filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim against an airline or major transportation company can be an arduous task and the attorney you have by your side matters. There may also be multiple at fault parties and insurance policies to consider compensation. At Shea & Shea – A Professional Law Corporation, we have the background to help you seek fair and just compensation.
