MBTA Accident Laws and Injuries in Massachusetts
Established in 1964, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) acts as the official mass transit system for many towns, cities, and municipalities and offers the commuter rail, subway, trains, ferry boats, and buses for public usage. Thousands of residents in the state of Massachusetts use the MBTA commuter rails every day for transportation to and from Boston as well as the surrounding areas. Each week about 131,000 riders use the services of the MBTA Commuter Rail according to the American Public Transportation Service. The MBTA Commuter Rail is in the top five of the busiest commuter rail systems in the United States.

Due to such a high number of people utilizing the subway and train services for transportation around the city of Boston and surrounding areas, it is not uncommon for daily commuters to fall victim to injuries as a result from the negligence of others.
