Bus accidents often result in serious and even fatal injuries. New York City streets are filled with buses at all times. There are buses operated by the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) as well as buses operated by private corporations.

Cases against the NYCTA require that the NYCTA be notified of the claim within 90 days. We can help.
Common Bus Transportation Questions
What Are Duties Of A Bus Driver? — Any business responsible for transporting people for a fee is generally known as a common carrier. The importance of this is that common carriers are often held to higher legal standards than other drivers, as they are responsible for so many more lives. These individuals often have numerous responsibilities such as alerting passengers about the presence of hazards and taking all necessary steps to ensure the safety of those passengers.
What Are My Legal Rights In A Bus Accident? — Buses are a common sight on the roads of New York. Yet it is easy to forget how easily these essential vehicles can become involved in an accident. Like all large vehicles they have blind spots and are highly susceptible to collisions. If you are riding on a bus when it is involved in an accident, you may have rights.
Your Right To Feel Safe When Riding A Bus — Many people in New York rely on local bus services to get them around. Unfortunately, not all drivers carry out their jobs with the level of care and diligence that they owe to their passengers. Know your options if you are injured on a bus in New York City.
No-Fault Insurance And Bus Accidents — In New York, typically an insurance company will cover your medical costs, transportation expenses and lost wages regardless of who was at fault. However, does no-fault cover your bus injuries? You weren’t driving your car, so do you still get coverage?
