Whereas riding buses and other public transportation in the NYC metro is generally safer than driving, serious bus accidents do occur and the injuries victims suffer can be serious. If you were injured — or a family member was tragically killed — in an accident involving an MTA bus, school bus, Greyhound or other commercially operated bus, Seth Katz and the professional team at Katz Law Offices can step in to advocate aggressively for your rights.
Car-Bus Collision? Hit by a Bus in New York? Our Law Firm Is Your Resource.
Fighting traffic tickets and criminal driving charges is only one of our clear strengths at the firm widely referred to as katzlawyers.com. We provide skilled, tenacious representation to victims of all types of motor vehicle accidents, and we understand the specific statutes, requirements and nuances that pertain to bus accident claims.
Our legal team offers extensive knowledge of New York traffic laws, actionable forms of driver and commercial carrier negligence, and the special statutes that apply to claims against a government agency such as the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) or a New York school district. We have the personal injury and wrongful death case experience to make a critical difference for you after any:
- Car-bus collision in which circumstances, fault and liability may be disputed
- Bus accident that injures a pedestrian or bicyclist, often occurring in a crosswalk and/or due to a bus driver's failure to keep proper lookout or signal a turn
- Accident involving a tour bus, commuter bus or private coach
Public entities such as the NYCTA and private, corporate bus companies are typically very aggressive in defending claims against them, motivated by financial considerations but also the desire to avoid damage to their safety records and reputations. Our attorneys will not be intimidated by powerful opposition or the challenge of taking your lawsuit against a bus company all the way through trial if needed.
