NYC BUS ACCIDENT LAWYER

Bus Accidents

The NYC bus accident lawyers at Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool And The Law Office Of William A. Gallina, LLP understand the devastating impact that a severe injury suffered in a bus accident can have on a victim's life. Due to their massive size, buses can cause devastating injuries to other drivers and their own passengers when they are involved in an accident. Passengers may sustain life-altering injuries, such as broken bones, amputations, severe head trauma, brain damage, lacerations and burns; in some cases, injuries resulting from a bus accident can prove fatal. In many instances, the accident and subsequent injuries could have been avoided if not for the bus driver or manufacturer's negligence.

As a result, individuals who have suffered a severe injury in a bus accident may be entitled to compensation. Our bus accident lawyers are committed to defending the rights of individuals who were unnecessarily injured due to the negligence of a bus driver or company. To help ease the financial burden that victims may face, our attorneys will pursue compensation for any lost wages, medical bills and pain or suffering our clients endured in the accident. Additionally, we pursue compensation for victims' families through wrongful death lawsuits when bus accidents end in fatalities.

Who Has Grounds For A Lawsuit Against The MTA Or Private Bus Company?

Individuals who have suffered an injury in a bus accident may be able to file a lawsuit against the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) or private bus company. In and of itself, however, an injury in a bus accident is not grounds for a lawsuit. In order to have a valid lawsuit, the victim must be able to prove that either the bus driver or bus company acted negligently. For instance, if the accident was the result of a road defect, the victims do not have grounds for a lawsuit against the bus company. Furthermore, victims of bus accidents must be able to prove that the injuries suffered in the crash caused either economic or non-economic damages. Economic damages are any financial strain the victim suffered. Non-economic damages are any pain and suffering caused by the crash.

Our NYC bus accident lawyers can help you bring forth a lawsuit if you were injured in a bus accident due to any of the following:

  • Speeding
  • Changing lanes illegally
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to yield
  • Driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Manufacturer error

Why Contact An NYC Bus Accident Lawyer?

Individuals who have suffered an injury in an accident involving a city bus or a private bus may have a difficult time proving liability. The MTA and bus companies have attorneys working hard to protect their interests after an accident. As a result, it is important that victims hire a lawyer who has experience handling bus accident lawsuits. An experienced lawyer will thoroughly investigate the accident by taking photos of the scene, reviewing police reports and interviewing witnesses. Additionally, our NYC bus accident lawyers will handle all aspects of the legal proceedings, including the filing of the lawsuit, representing victims at trial, handling mediation when necessary and pursuing maximum compensation for their our clients’ losses. Our New York bus accident attorneys have been trying bus accident cases for over 60 years. Our law firm has the experience and resources necessary to combat the MTA's attorneys.
