Paratransit expert witnesses will have experience in several facets of transportation and accessibility, as paratransit refers to a type of transportation provided as a door-to-door service for individuals with various types of disabilities. Paratransit expert consulting provides valuable insight for cases involving such areas as transit accessibility, transit civil rights, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), bus transit, school buses, school safety, learning disabilities, developmental disabilities, logistical operations, employee training, and other issues concerning the use of transportation and accessibility, as each becomea highly relevant in the event of paratransit-related litigation.
Since paratransit must be designed for the accommodation of individuals with various disabilities, paratransit experts have often worked with providing wheelchair access and other forms of transit accessibility for the purpose of passenger safety. Failing to provide ramps and other such features for transit accessibility would be in violation of civil rights, which would be cause for possible lawsuits. In addition to paratransit, some experts in this area also have experience working with taxis, medical transportation, and other types of vehicles. Other related issues include transportation unions, fleet maintenance, contract management, and staff training, in addition to other management and business-related operations. As with many cases involving the use of vehicles, paratransit experts may also be called upon for cases involving accident investigation and reconstruction.
