NYC Bus Accident Lawyers

Fighting to Recover Your Rightful Compensation

Many New Yorkers take buses to get where they need to go throughout the five boroughs. While most bus rides are without incident, every so often an accident can occur — and when they do, the results can be tragic. If you were hurt in a New York City bus accident, it’s essential to have a skillful personal injury attorney by your side who can assist you with recovering the compensation you deserve for your injuries. At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, our lawyers have decades of experience successfully fighting for the rights of New Yorkers who have suffered injuries in bus accidents caused by another’s negligence or recklessness.

The Advocacy You Need at the Time You Need It Most

There are many circumstances that can cause a bus accident, including distracted driving, hazardous roadways, driver fatigue, or even the conduct of other drivers on the road. Whether you are injured as a bus passenger, the driver of a vehicle who was struck by a bus, or as a pedestrian hit by a bus, the consequences can be devastating. If you have suffered a serious injury due to a bus accident, you may be able to pursue compensation by filing a personal injury action.

At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we represent clients in a variety of bus accidents, including those caused by the following:

  • Negligent driving by the bus driver
  • Intoxication, inattention, or inexperience of the bus driver
  • A bus company’s failure to train its driver
  • Intoxicated or overly medicated bus drivers or train conductors
  • A faulty and defective bus or equipment
  • Recklessness on the part of another driver
  • Discharging passengers at an inappropriate location
  • The City’s failure to repair potholes or other dangerous road conditions
  • Blind spots or turning too widely
  • Hazardous conditions at bus stops

A number of parties can potentially be held liable in a bus accident lawsuit. For instance, the bus driver may be accountable for their careless conduct. Another motorist may be accountable in the event their negligent driving caused the crash. Or, depending on the facts of the case, the bus company, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA), or the City of New York might be legally responsible for your injuries. Applying our extensive knowledge and experience, the personal injury lawyers at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP will work diligently to identify each potentially liable party to help ensure you receive the maximum compensation available under the law.

Securing the Monetary Recovery You Deserve

The physical, emotional, and financial impact of a bus accident can be severe. Injuries can include broken bones, nerve damage, spinal cord injuries, concussion, lacerations, disfigurement, permanent disability, and paralysis. In some cases, a bus collision can even result in fatality. By filing a personal injury action, you may be entitled to recover compensation for the economic losses you suffered in connection with the bus accident. These damages can include your unreimbursed medical expenses, lost wages, and out-of-pocket costs incurred due to the accident.

By pursuing a personal injury claim, you may also be eligible to recover for the non-economic losses you suffered as a result of the bus accident, including the pain and suffering you experienced. At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we understand how a bus crash can affect your daily life and livelihood. With a solid track record of success that spans the course of more than 80 years, our firm knows what it takes to stand up against the MTA, the NYCTA, the City of New York — as well as other parties who may be liable for your injuries. No matter how complex a case is, we work relentlessly to develop a thorough strategy in your case to help secure the compensation to which you’re entitled for your injuries.

The Great Equalizer: Contingency Fees

It is no secret that civil attorneys typically work purely on contingency fees. In other words, they only get paid if money is won and the client pays nothing out of pocket. Whatever expenses the cases creates, the attorney is responsible to pay out of his or her pocket. In his ongoing web series "Pulling Back the Curtain," New York City attorney Paul Edelstein explains what this means for the client.
