A Bus Accident Lawyer in New York Who Guides Victims to Justice
For those of us who commute on public transportation buses every day, we count on the companies that run them—the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), NYC Transit Authority (NYCTA), Westchester’s Bee-Line and ParaTransit, Long Island GO, Transport of Rockland (TOR) and TappanZee Express (TZx)—to get us to work and back safely. But there are countless bus accidents throughout the NYC region every year, with passengers and passers-by suffering everything from broken bones and concussions, to spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury.
If a bus crashes into a car, runs over pedestrians or hits a bicyclist, there can be many causes, including malfunctioning bus brakes, defective bus engines or buses that are not regularly inspected, maintained and repaired. Recovery from bus impact injuries can be a long, painful and extremely stressful process for victims and their families, who will need an experienced New York bus accident attorney to fight for their justice and restitution. If a loved one died in a bus crash, that may constitute a wrongful death lawsuit, which can be even more complex.
Families of New Yorkers Killed By MTA, Bee-Line or Go Buses Need Tough Legal Representation
Anyone who is hit by a bus in New York is in a difficult legal situation, because it is their word, or their family’s word, against that of the bus company and its lawyers. That’s where we come in. We are knowledgeable personal injury attorneys who handle every aspect of a bus accident case, including dealing with insurance companies, including all legal paperwork, witness interviews, photographing the bus accident site and preserving bus crash evidence.
If we represent you, we will also help ensure that you receive the proper medical treatment for your bus accident injuries. If you work for a bus company and believe the cause of your accident was negligence on its part, contact us to see how we can help. We are experienced in representing union members—such as Transit Workers Union (TWU) members.
Sadly, no one is safe from bus accident fatalities. Bus passengers, nearby bicyclists and pedestrians walking by, such as shoppers, tourists or police officers on foot, are all in danger of being hit by an MTA bus. Distracted bus drivers who are texting behind the wheel or making a cell phone call put the lives of others in danger, both inside and near the bus. Drunk bus drivers risk killing everyone on board, particularly if they are driving across the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, 58th Street Bridge or Triboro Bridge.
From the Bronx to Queens to Staten Island, bus riders entrust their lives to MTA and other bus company drivers every day, and if a bus driver is negligent or reckless, the bus company owners can be held responsible.
