Akron is a town in Henry Township, Fulton County, Indiana, United States. The population was 1,076 at the 2000 census. "Akron," originally named Newark until 1855, was founded by Dr. Joseph Sippy on July 4, 1836 when he brought 47 settlers to what was then the crossing of the Potawatomi and Miami Indian trails and declared, “This is the place!” The first building was constructed where the Methodist church stands now. Dr. Sippy's house, which once stood across the street from Viking Foods, was a stop on the Underground Railroad. Akron hosts a nationally-famous All-Americana 4th of July parade and fireworks. Students attend Akron Elementary and Tippecanoe Valley Middle and High Schools.

What is mass transit accident litigation?

Cases involving individuals who have been injured in crashes and collisions involving commercial airlines, railroads, oceangoing vessels, and government-operated municipal bus and rail systems. Some of the most common mass transit accidents are caused by sudden starts and stops, speeding, intoxication of operators and slippery floors. Buses are often involved in accidents with other motor vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists. Trains sometimes come derailed or have toxic spills that affect many people. People who are injured in mass transit accidents may be compensated for their injury, lost income, and pain and suffering.
