Your Legal Advocates After An NYC Bus Accident
When there is an accident or injury involving a city bus, the New York City Transportation Authority (NYCTA) and Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) will have lawyers at work to protect their interests. If you were injured, who will protect you and ensure you receive the compensation you need?
Subin Associates has extensive experience bringing lawsuits against the NYCTA and MTA. We know how to counter their legal strategies. We also understand the need to act quickly; you have only 90 days to file a claim or you lose the right to sue.
Our NYC Transit Authority bus accident lawyers can explain your rights and get to work protecting them. We represent bus passengers, pedestrians hit by the bus and drivers of other vehicles. Contact us at 877-265-4065 to discuss your claim.
Holding Professional MTA Drivers Accountable
City bus drivers have commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) and are held to higher standards than noncommercial drivers. They are also required to follow MTA regulations. We will investigate your accident and find out if the driver did so. Some common causes of bus accidents include:
- Hour and mile violations
- Speeding or reckless drivers and other moving violations
- Distracted drivers such as texting or talking on cell phones
- Drunk drivers
Regardless of the cause of the accident, a collision with a bus usually results in serious injuries such as broken bones, back and spinal injuries, or traumatic brain injuries (TBI). In the worst cases, a bus accident causes wrongful death.
Our attorneys will work with medical and financial experts to argue for compensation for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. For the families of wrongful death victims, we will also seek damages for funeral expenses and loss of future income.
