Countless individuals take public transportation in New York City, including Transit Authority buses. No one ever steps onto a bus expecting to be involved in a serious accident, but unfortunately, bus accidents are all too common in the busy city.

Drivers of cars, taxis and other vehicles who are reluctant to yield to buses may cause a collision. Bus drivers also cause accidents due to inattentive or reckless operation of the vehicle.

Anyone who has suffered serious injuries because of a public bus, school bus or tour bus accident can file a claim with the help of a personal injury lawyer from Jaroslawicz & Jaros.

If a bus or other public transportation vehicle caused the accident that resulted in your injuries, in order to obtain compensation, you must submit a Notice of Claim form with the New York City Transit Authority (NYCTA) within 90 days of the accident. This can be a quick and effective procedure, but only if it is performed correctly. Most people are unaware of the correct procedure for filing a claim and, as a result, many forfeit their right to compensation.

Consult with our personal injury attorneys in New York City as soon as possible after a bus accident so that they can file your claim with the NYCTA within the required 90 days after your accident.

If you have been injured in a bus accident, you may be entitled to compensation for both your past and future damages, including:

  • Medical costs
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of earning ability
  • Pain and suffering

Some of the many bus accident cases we have successfully handled include:

  • Letting a passenger off at a bus stop while the bus was stopped some distance from the curb and in front of a pothole.
  • A bus striking a car in the rear.
  • A bus striking a taxi and the taxi’s passenger suffering a traumatic head injury.
  • An Access-A-Ride bus that struck a pedestrian as she was crossing a street.
  • An Access-A-Ride bus that struck a car after going through a red light.
  • A school bus striking a double-parked car causing the matron on the bus to fall and be injured.
  • A school bus operator letting a young child off to cross the street without following safety regulations.
  • A woman who tripped over the handicapped seat support hardware that was protruding into the aisle.
