Injured in a Bus Accident? You May Have a Case
Bus crashes and other accidents can be serious, often causing injuries like burns, broken bones, and traumatic brain injuries. If you've been injured in a bus accident that was not your fault, the at-fault party should be held responsible for your medical care, lost wages, disability, property damage, pain and suffering, and more.
In order to secure compensation in the state of New York, you must be able to prove negligence. Examples of negligence include:
- Distracted driving
- Impaired driving
- Reckless driving/speeding
- Negligence when hiring
- Defective parts
Our lawyers and their team of specialists can investigate the bus accident, gather GPS and driver records, and help determine how the bus accident occurred. They may find that someone else is liable for any damages you've incurred.
Holding Negligent Parties Responsible for Your Injuries
Under New York's comparative negligence law, anyone who contributed to your bus accident can be held liable, including:
- Bus drivers

- The government

Be Wary of Insurance Companies Don't Settle for Less
Insurance companies are notorious for driving down the value of a claim. They may even tell you that their offer is the best settlement you could get for your bus crash or other bus-related accident. Ultimately, their job is to encourage you to accept an offer that's as low as possible and get you to settle your claim. Don't let them take advantage of you—learn what you could really recover by contacting our lawyers.
