New York City Accident Lawyer

Bus accident

Every year, thousands are injured or killed in bus accidents. It is mostly due to the negligence of the driver or the faulty mechanics of the vehicle. In one year there were 1700 accidents involving only New York City school buses which resulted in over 900 injuries. Multiply that by the number of regular commuter buses, and you have a significant number of injuries caused by the transporting of people in these large vehicles.

It is extremely important if you are involved in any type of bus accident that you take care of your physical needs immediately by going to the hospital. Your next step is to contact a respected and experienced attorney who has had years of experience in handling motor vehicle and bus accident cases. Handling a case involving public transportation vehicles brings the City of New York into the case. You need to hire an attorney who has gone up against the City and knows how to file and bring a case properly so that you get the representation you deserve.

Do you need a bus accident attorney in New York City, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan?

Unfortunately, accidents involving MTA bus and subway drivers and conductors are not unknown. According to the  MTA itself, in fact, its drivers have been involved in preventable fatalities that should never have happened. This doesn’t take into account accidents that leave individuals injured, either, which has resulted in some very high-profile incidents recently. Sometimes these accidents involve derailments that unexpectedly crash into nearby buildings, harming individuals that were completely unaware that they were at risk. Other times, buses strike and injure, or kill, pedestrians due to unsafe speeds (in addition to other preventable factors).

Types of injuries a New York City, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan bus accident lawyer will represent

Injuries caused by the MTA can vary widely depending upon the circumstances. Some individuals might suffer traumatic brain injuries as a result of being struck by a bus, while others might sustain catastrophic injuries that permanently alter the way their body operates. Some might find themselves injured as a result of falling down stairs or ending injured on the platform itself. Still, others might suffer from broken bones, lesions, or scrapes and bruises and damaged property. And, as illustrated above, death is, unfortunately, something that can also result from MTA accidents including those involving city buses in NYC. With so many potential accidents and such a range of potential injuries, it is important to work with attorneys who are skilled and experienced in this area. Victims will likely find themselves struggling to receive compensation at all, let alone enough to cover the medical bills or loss of wages that resulted from the accident in question.

The Law Office of Nicholas E. Tzaneteas can help represent you if you have been injured in an MTA-related accident. This includes accidents that result from being directly injured while riding a bus, train or subway, and also from accidents including slips and falls on the stairs or platforms needed to access the aforementioned forms of transportation. We can help determine who was at fault in your case and work with you to make sure you recover the compensation you deserve.
