The Legal Help You Need After A Serious Bus Accident
A huge number of commuters rely on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to get to their destination on time – and safely – every day. Unfortunately, bus accidents can and do happen too commonly. The logistics of doing paperwork, attending physical therapy and dealing with insurance companies can be difficult enough, but bus accidents tend to have additional difficulties. The New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) has huge resources behind investigating and defending claims, meaning that it is often unwilling to settle out of court. Private buses, too, provide their own difficulties for pursuing compensation.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, it is critical to work with an attorney who will aggressively advocate for you and do everything possible to secure your compensation. Lawyers at Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, Attorneys at Law, have worked on bus accident cases for more than 25 years. Our bus personal injury attorneys are ready to represent you with the same skill and tenacity that has allowed them to obtain millions of dollars for injured clients.
No Matter How You Were Injured, We Can Help You Seek Compensation
There are numerous ways to get injured while riding, waiting for or sharing the road with a bus. Just a few examples include accidents and injuries caused by:
- Inattentive or negligent MTA drivers
- Abrupt stops that cause standing passengers to lose their balance
- Poorly maintained buses
- Hazardous bus stops with icy steps, cracks in the sidewalk and other safety hazards
Pedestrians are also at high risk in a dense urban environment like New York City. Buses have huge blind spots, and drivers often fail to account for these visibility issues before aggressively pulling into traffic or turning corners. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your injuries, you can count on us to fully investigate the accident and hold the at-fault parties accountable for your medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
