In Manhattan and other parts of New York City, it is often cost prohibitive to purchase, store, and drive an automobile. For this and other reasons, public transportation in New York City including by bus is very popular. With a large number of public and private buses traveling the streets of New York sharing roadways with pedestrian, bicycle, and motor vehicle traffic, bus accidents are an unfortunate but inevitable outcome.
Driver error is the number one cause of bus accidents. This includes distracted driving, aggressive driving, inattention, lack of training or experience, failing to keep a safe distance between vehicles, and failing to keep a proper lookout.
What to do after a Bus Accident:
-if you feel pain, go to the hospital
-take photographs of the accident location, injuries, and all vehicles involved
-write down the license plate # of all vehicles
-obtain phone numbers and contact information for any witnesses
-contact the bus accident lawyers at Frekhtman & Associates
-in the days following the accident, do not speak to any insurance company. Do not give a recorded statement. Do not sign any paperwork such as authorizations, releases, or other forms provided by the insurance company. If the insurance company calls you, tell them all communications must be with your lawyer.
Damages you can recover after a bus accident include:
-compensation for past and future pain & suffering
-past and future lost wages, lost income, and other economic damages such as the value of household services
-the cost of medical expenses such as future surgery, physical therapy, and other medical care
