Factors that Contribute to Bus Accidents
In addition to the normal challenges associated with driving in metro areas, bus operators need to maintain safety while picking up passengers and dealing with passenger issues. Bus drivers receive special training because their large vehicles can be harder to maneuver, especially in tight spaces. The long braking distance and rollover tendency of these large vehicles also contribute to accidents. Accordingly, it is especially important for buses to undergo frequent maintenance and for operators to drive at a safe speed. When we take one of these cases, we look at every relevant detail, including whether the driver was properly trained and rested.
How Our Firm Can Help with Your Bus Accident Claim
After a bus accident, we investigate the situation thoroughly to identify the negligent parties that contributed to the crash. This could include the driver, the bus company and the maker of faulty equipment. From there, our firm’s attorney presses for the money you need to pay your medical bills, make up for lost wages and compensate you for the physical and emotional pain you experienced.
Common Types of Bus Accidents
Our firm represents New Yorkers hurt in crashes involving MTA buses, school buses, chartered coaches, tourist buses and commuter lines. We handle a full range of accident claims, including those arising from:
- Collisions with other vehicles — Whether you’re riding on the bus or are inside the car or truck that it hits, you can rely on us for knowledgeable guidance about your legal rights.
- Pedestrian accidents — If you’re walking, getting hit by a bus could result in life-changing medical problems. We have the knowledge and resources to handle pedestrian accident cases where victims suffer long-term harm.
- Single-vehicle crashes — You might get injured from the original impact or after being jostled around when your bus strikes a fixed structure.
Bus accident litigation often requires special legal procedures and possibly shorter deadlines because the defendant might be a public entity. Our firm's attorney understands how to represent clients in these claims and achieve successful results.
