Bus Accidents – New York City Law Firm Focused on Your Personal Needs

New York City bus accident attorney Jonathan C. Reiter fights for injury victims

Bus accidents in New York City often result in serious injuries or fatalities. If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a bus accident in New York, contact Jonathan C. Reiter Law Firm, PLLC. Our experienced NYC bus accident attorneys will fight for your rights and will not rest until justice is served.

Don’t simply assume that your family will be fairly compensated for your bus accident. In many cases, the New York City Transit Authority and its insurance company does not offer bus accident victims enough money to cover the true cost of their accident.

That’s not right. That’s why we work so hard on behalf of bus accident victims in New York. Remember, you didn’t do anything to cause your injury. Why should you have to pay for someone else’s careless or reckless behavior? Contact us. We can help. Call (212) 736-0979.

In addition to mass transit accidents involving buses, we also handle accidents in New York involving:

  • Charter bus accidents
  • Private bus accidents
  • School bus accidents

What are the common causes of bus accidents in New York?

Bus accidents in New York City happen for many reasons. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Distracted bus drivers
  • Asleep at the wheel bus drivers
  • Speeding bus drivers
  • Untrained bus drivers
  • Mechanical problems
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Unsafe conditions

  • Negligence by other drivers near the bus

Who investigates bus accidents in New York City?

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigates bus accidents in New York City. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) also investigates bus accidents involving its buses in the New York City.

No matter who’s investigating your accident, it’s important to have someone personally investigating your bus accident – an advocate who is looking out for your best interests. That’s why people throughout New York regularly hire us. We have years of experience. We are well-versed in New York’s laws and deliver results.

Why should I hire New York City Bus Accident Lawyer for my personal injuries. 

If you have been injured in a bus accident in New York, the law entitles you to compensation if the accident was caused by negligence or recklessness. The NYC Transit Authority is responsible for maintaining all city buses, and ensuring that all bus drivers have been properly trained.

If a bus rider sustains an injury due improper maintenance or bus driver negligence, the NYC Transit authority may be liable.  As a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and additional financial hardship and emotional distress, among other damages.

In one particular case, we secured a $3 million settlement for a bus accident injury victim. In another case, we obtained $875,000 for a bus passenger who sustained a serious injury when his scooter tipped over on the bus. The bus driver failed to properly secure the scooter. Attorney Reiter proved that the plaintiff, a polio victim since childhood, had relied upon his shoulders to walk with crutches, and as a consequence of the accident he would no longer be able to use crutches and would be confined to a wheelchair. At trial, the jury awarded attorney Reiter’s client $875,000.
